It is tedious having to look for which mic is currently active.

Idea: Add the mic name to the recorder user interface.

There's a vote from me on this one. I got caught out by that in Camtasia just a week or two back. I always check the levels display, such as it is (because I've been caught out by that before too) but when I went to edit the clips, while the volume level was OK it sounded like I was at the bottom of a well. For some reason Camtasia had taken it upon itself to use the Webcam mic instead of my headset mic. I disabled the webcam mic to make sure it couldn't do that again but it still burnt about 20 minutes of production time.

That said, Techsmith has already rejected this idea, but I do still suggest that people who get caught by this issue keep voting up that thread.

Edit: I just noticed that this was posted 4 months ago, notwithstanding that it was on the second page of the current conversations. I imagine that it got there by having its categories changed, or some such.
