Super USB Cassette Capture's Built-in Input Does Not Pick Up Sound from the Cassette

I have the Audacity 2.1.3, which I just bought on line. I have a macOS 10.13.6. I hooked up the Audacity following the directions the best I could. The directions are flimsy. I downloaded the correct updated version of LAME, and the /Library/Application Support/audacity/libs/ffmpeg.55.64bit.dylib.

The cassette’s built-in mic will record, but the built-in Input does not show any signal at all. I have spent hours fooling around with this to no avail.

Please help.

I hope you didn’t buy Audacity because it’s open source. Maybe it came with the cassette player? You can download version 2.3.3 [u]here[/u].

Make sure you select the USB device as your [u]Recording Device[/u]. …Beyond that, someone else will have to help because I’m a Windows guy.

I downloaded the correct updated version of LAME,

LAME is ONLY for exporting to MP3 so it’s unrelated to your problem, and LAME is now built-into Audacity. For various other formats you may need the optional FFMPEG library.
