When access to your microphone disappears in the software, learn a trick to help you get it back fast.
- As you work and change equipment, you may lose access to your microphone. Let's find it. (upbeat dance music) Well, there are two places to look for the microphone you want to use for your recording. If you're on a PC, come down to the bottom and where you see your speaker icon, right-click on it and select Recording Devices. Here you'll have the option under the Recording tab of all your devices. I actually am using my USB preamp 2.
If you're still not getting your microphone, simply, in Character Animator, go to Edit dropdown and go to Preferences. Under Audio Hardware, you're going to look for the Input. That's your microphones, and here we see I've got my USB preamp 2. I'll select OK. Now, there might be a time where your mic is selected and you still don't hear it. You get not response here from your audio meter. You can click your microphone on and off here, and if you're not getting a response from the one you want, so fix that, simply go to Edit in Preferences and select a different mic.
Click OK. And then go back and reselect the one that you want. This sometimes is necessary when you unplug and replug a mic while your system is running. If none of those options work, well, the simplest thing to do is reboot your computer. That fixes almost everything. (upbeat dance music)
