I've recently purchased this microphone for use with my Pi 3, but I can't seem to get it to work. I run arecord -l and the Pi can see my device:

**** List of CAPTURE Hardware Devices ****
card 1: Device [(LCS) USB Audio Device], device 0: USB Audio [USB Audio]
  Subdevices: 0/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

But when I try to record a test with arecord -D plughw:1,0 -d 3 test.wav I get the following error:

arecord: main:788: audio open error: Device or resource busy

Is there anything I can do to get around this?
