Problem connecting Zoom h4
I've scoured this board as well as others looking for a solution to this problem but nothing has worked. I would really appreciate any help. A month ago, I built a new computer with an eye toward music production. I'm using a Zoom h4 usb mic and, after some initial tinkering, I got it to work. However, (and I'm not sure if this is related or not) but after I used the computer's mic input to record another instrument the h4 hasn't worked since (about three frustrating weeks).
The situation now- Pulse recognizes the h4 and its input but I can't get any audio into Ardour (and I can't monitor myself with rakarrack like I could before). JACK seems to recognize the h4 since it's in JACK's input device menu. I've changed the input device to both "h4" and "usb mic" but neither allows me to produce sound.
I promise to donate money to the project if someone can help me out with this! (otherwise, I'll have to spend that money on a system that works)
Thanks for reading!
