Windows 11 - error -9996 trying to record

Just upgraded to Windows 11 and am getting error -9996 trying to record from headphone audio. Audacity 3.3.3 - had no issues in Win 10.

Audio settings:
Playback: (doesn’t matter - works with no issues but options are Speakers (Realtek HD and Realtek HD 2nd Output)
Recording: Speakers (Realtek HD) WORKS - Speakers (Realtek HD) LOOPBACK and Realtek HD 2nd Output LOOPBACK both fail with -9996

Any suggestions appreciated.

Try recording in stereo. See: Error codes - Audacity Support

Recording in stereo did the trick! Thanks!
