Default USB mic not being detected

Hi!

I've had several versions of Reaper over the years, and never had a problem with getting USB mics or MIDI discovered on my computer. I recently got a new 2017 MacBook Pro. I've had tried multiple times with multiple installs to get audio out of my Rode NT-USB in the program. It shows as an input I can use, but I'm getting no sound or meter reading. I hope I'm overlooking something simple, I love this program.

Thanks in advance!

For what it's worth, I've seen a number of posts on the forum about microphones on Mac's and in most cases it had something to do with a microphone privacy setting in the Mac OS.

Not a Mac guy so I can't say for sure where that setting is, but if you search the forum, there have been a number of posts on the subject.

If you can't find anything by searching, someone will jump on here and give you more specifics.

Good luck.

You're a genius man, that was exactly it! I'd have never thought to ;look for that in a million years.
OKC has really become a great city with Bricktown and everything going on downtown. I like Tulsa but were kind of the ugly step-child.

Glad that worked.

Haven't been back to OKC in years, but I agree, that Bricktown renovation was pretty cool.

I lived in Tulsa for a few years back in the late 80's. Back then Tulsa was the sophisticated city and OKC was cow town.
