    Can't record voice-over...

    codexplorer Level 1

      I am trying to record a voice-over and seem to have a harder time than expected... I have done it in the past on the same machine but seem unable to repeat it.

      Anyhow, here's how it goes: PP 5.5 on a 2011 iMac. My external lapel mic is dead so I want to use the internal mic. The internal mic seems to work fine (Finder Preferences shows the sound recording levels go in the max region).

      When I try to select the audio hardware in PP (Preferences>>Audio Hardware), I am stuck with "System default input/output", even when I choose "built-in mic/built-in output". I can select "Built-in input/Built-in output" but that's not what I am looking for (I think).

      Anyhow, back to the Audio mixer, I select my audio track for recording and only have one hardware choice: "Built-in input: Line 1/Built-in output: Line 2"

      Of course (?) when I try to record anything with these settings, the recorded track is empty.

      What gives?
