Long story short, my mic was working fine yesterday. I then had a pair of USB speakers connected and then again disconnected. And now I cannot get the little thing to do a arecord with using the "-D" parameter.

My setup is currently a monitor with HDMi and sound output (works perfectly), 1 USB mic (did work fine, but now doesnt).

I am fairly new to this so I might have missed something obvious, but any pointers are appreciated.df

  • your title says it only works with -D - but the body of the question states cannot get the little thing to do a arecord with using the "-D" parameter. and then there is no example of using -D anywhere - so, confused Dec 27, 2018 at 21:24
  • ahh forgot to add it :P I have been doing some ts since, so I cant even replicate the issue anymore, though I have gotten it narrowed down to it being a problem with the mic not being set up correctly. Which is weird as it was working perfectly fine right after I installed it, but after I had some usb powered speakers connected it messed up my mic it seems.. Dec 29, 2018 at 17:58
