Same here with HighSierra. Installing the SystemAudio device don ́t seem to work. Even reinstalling the whole app don ́t make any difference; no system audio gets recorded. Camtasia is now useless for me.

Through trial and error, I noticed that after downloading the Camtasia audio software and plugging my iPhone headsets into the audio jack on my MAC, the audio recorded.  Prior to using the audio jack, I had tried the internal mic as well as USB headset--neither worked.  If using the audio jack works, it might be  a "systems" thing .  Try it!

Thanks for your reply. I was digging a bit deeper and found the answer here under option N°2:https://support.techsmith.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001669891-Camtasia-Mac-macOS-High-Sierra-10-13-th...
I guess it wasn ́t working because of a system migration. In essence I needed to remove the extension manually - so macOS noticed a new installation and I got access to the sandbox process successfully. Restart is needed!
