WASAPI not working

When I switch to wasapi mode, audacity doesn’t pick up anything from my mic. I’m racking my brain trying to solve this but the first page of google results are utterly unhelpful.

Why do you want to use WASAPI mode?
Does MME work?

MME works, but I hear WASAPI gives better audio quality so I wanted to use that instead.

I’ve got it working when I set recording to “stereo” but I want it to work with “mono”…Is WASAPI stereo-only?
