  • Error in opening audio device

    Hello,

    I am trying to use a microphone on a mac mini that has no microphone input, so I am using a USB input for the mic.

    When I run an experiment (this computer has the non-editing version of SL just for running subjects) using voice key activation as the input, it doesn't work, and when I close the file, it tells me "superlab was unable to open this audio device".

    What might I need to do? Any suggestions if my particular USB input (a VXI Translator) won't work?

    Thank you,
    Ben

    On your Mac, under System Preferences, check the sound. Test this and see if it's recognizable by the Mac. If it's not, then it won't be compatible with SuperLab.

      It does register the sound--on the sound control panel it shows that the mic is picking up sound.

        I spoke to a colleague regarding your situation. He remembers there being an issue with a USB based microphone, but it was a timing problem that the built in ones don't have. Unfortunately, in your situation I don't have an answer.
