Jim & Viv,
Windows sets the default recording device according to your soundcard, not your microphone. Therefore, if you change microphones but continue to use the same soundcard, it won’t make any difference to VoiceComputer. For example, regardless of what microphone you use, if your soundcard is a USB SoundPod, such as the AndrÃ©a PureAudio USB-SA, AndrÃ©a PureAudio USB-MA, Buddy USB 6G/7G, etc., it doesn’t make any difference what microphone you use with such. On the other hand, if you’re using an internal soundcard, such as the Realtek integrated soundcard in laptops or desktops, it still doesn’t make any difference because Windows sets the default to the soundcard, not to the microphone.
Therefore, the VC Microphone works in terms of your soundcard because Windows doesn’t recognize microphones.
