Connect a USB Microphone

Rather than using an Audio Interface with a dynamic or condenser microphone, a USB microphone is a simple way to start recording with better sound quality than using the mic/headphone connection on your machine. Most USB microphones are plug and play, so you should be up and running in no time!

To connect a USB microphone to Cakewalk by BandLab:

  1. Connect your device to your machine prior to starting Cakewalk by BandLab
  2. Launch Cakewalk by BandLab
  3. Go to Edit > Preferences, or press P when the Start Screen is closed to open the Preferences menu
  4. Under Audio > Playback and Recording, set your Driver Mode to WASAPI Shared (Windows 10), or WDM/KS (Windows 7 or 8)
  5. Under Audio > Devices, make sure your device is selected as an Input device. If you’re using the headphone output, also check the Output category. 

Click Apply and OK to save your changes!
