My wife has been doing podcast recordings for weeks using Audio Recorder and a Sampson Q2U microphone plugged. It was plug-and-play using Audio Recorder with no problem until today. Her recording had a buzzing sound in it and then stopped recording audio so we had faulty audio then blank track. We tried a microphone i had and it was plug-and-play with no problem. So we went and picked up an identical Sampson Q2U microphone and plugged it in. The name and model number came up in the choices (just like it before and just like it did with my microphone) but again, we’re getting no audio recording. We also tried Audacity to see if it was a sudden problem with Audio Recorder. Nope, we got flat tracks with the Sampson microphone, but my microphone did record correctly.
We went to the Sound Settings panel and checked in the Input tab with the Samson chosen and the input level wouldn’t move. I took the Samson to my MacBook Pro and it works fine. I plugged in MY microphone on Sallie’s Linux and the Input did move in Sound Settings.
Maybe there’s something to run in terminal to fix this glitch?
She did run all updates on systems, but nothing to report there.
