MM version is 188.8.131.52. I can not or will not be able to use version 27 until the bugs get worked out further. Version 25 is working quite nicely for me except for what I run into now, i.e, trying to record audio for the first time.
The external USB microphone I am using works just fine in windows (10), no problems whatsoever. On any other program I use this same mic is working just fine also. My problem is only in MM. I designate the external USB mic as active. I, however, get no audio input into the system. Meter levels show nothing, I hear nothing, I see nothing. Record button does create an active track, but no audio shows up in the track. Summary: mic is working everywhere I try it with no problem except in MM. I notice the driver info box is empty and blank in the MM info box; there was no driver required to install or use this mic successfully elsewhere.
I will listen to, follow, and try to learn from any suggestions or recommendations that you have. Thank you much,
