Error 9986 with Focusrite Scarlett

Post by bubbasadventure » Sat Nov 21, 2020 7:41 pm

I set up my Focusrite to my Mac os10.15 operating system and used audacity and it was working- then I moved my computer and did some other things - I also downloaded to ACX analyzer. When I hooked it back up to the focus rite I'm getting an error message 9986 for the internal port audio. I searched for solutions on this thread and tried what I saw, The wires seem connected. MY privacy is set to allow microphone and my sound for input and output is set to the Scarlett. What am I missing/doing wrong?? Thanks!

Since you have searched through the audacity forums for help, why not try checking that Catalina is seeing your scarlett:
