Using an external mike and pre-amp [SOLVED]

External mike & pre-amp.
Audacity 2.0.0.
OSX 10.6.8
5 or 6 years ago I used a Shure PG48 Microphone and pre-amp (not a USB connection) to record singing (I forget the version of Audacity). Now I come to use it and cannot persuade Audacity to recognise the mike. All I get is ‘Built in Microphone’ or ‘Built in input’. Preferences seems to offer no help. What’s going on?

The issue is the pre-amp. How are you connecting the output of the pre-amp to your Mac? If you are connecting the output of the pre-amp to the line input of the Mac, then “Built-in Input” should work.

Am I dumb or what! There is no problem. Thanks Bill :laughing:
