I just started using Camtasia with a yeti USB microphone. I've set everything up in the control panel. When I record the video, however, I can't hear anything. the audio is on and set for yeti.  the audio visual shows that it goes in the red when I test it.  Any suggestions?

Hello there,

What version of Camtasia Studio are you using? 

It's sounds like you have enabled Audio in the Camtasia recorder. I just want to ensure that you have.
There are 2 ways to enable recording  from a microphone in Camtasia. See Image Below, Click to Enlarge

Regards, Joe

Using Camtasia:mac Version 2.10.5 and having the same problem that Stephanie had. It also seems that Camtasia will recognize the mic for a single recording and then will not receive input from the mic. Using a USB port.

I am having this problem on Windows 10, Camtasia 9. I have checked that the right drivers are installed and have checked both locations shown on the pic above and it is set up correctly.  When I play the recording in Camtasia, I do not hear sound.

When I reverse the settings and record using my computers microphone, I do get and hear sound. Can you please help me?

I divided do this. The built in microphone and play back shows up and the yeti shows up. When I want to test the yeti, I set it as default. When I’m using the computer microphone I set it as the default. Is there Another step?

Aside from checking recording levels under properties. None that I'm aware of. I'm wondering if you have a bad or loose connection on the mic? Have you plugged it into anything else that works with lately?

Does the audio level meter move when recording?

Yes, other things I have plugged in work and I switched ond I switched one of them with the mic to test. Also, there is a red light on the Yeti when it is connected and the red light is on.  Thanks for your help. If anything else occurs to you, would love to hear.

I'd run it by tech support. There better at tracking down odd problems than me.
You can't use the mic with Camtasia, that's a Camtasia issue to me.

I'll pass this along in the "for what it's worth" category ...

twice, in the past 5 months, I have lost use of my USB mic [AT2020T] from within Camtasia [9 and 2018]; lost it with both Recorder and editor; one moment it was working great, the next, it wasn't at all; but I could still use the mic with Audacity; otherwise, everything seemed in order [drivers, device manager = not detected, etc]; the only solution I found that fixed it was to unplug the USB cable, and plug it into a different slot; this caused Windows 10 Pro 64 to "recognize" it again; then, I had my mic back with anything Camtasia

again, this happened 2 different times, separated by several months; swapping slots fixed it in both cases

life can be stranger than fiction

I’m having the same issue. I plugged in my new Blue Yeti and made a short recording with it. When I added the recording to the timeline however, I could not hear anything. I checked the control panel, plugged the USB into a different port but nothing worked. Hopefully I can get my new expensive microphone to work with Camtasia soon...

I am very embarrassed to report what the solution was for me. I will swallow my pride and do so anyway in case it helps you. When I plug in my Yeti, this screen shows the option currently visible on the attachment plus the Yeti option. I chose the Yeti for both recording and playback. I should only have chosen it for Recording.  The Yeti has no playback ability. When I changed this Playback screen back to my computer's default, everything worked like magic.

The Yeti has a headphone output. Windows sometimes considers it a playback device.
