Hallo! I came to this site because I know I can get assistance here. I am new in music recording and I have been learning from a friend. Lately, I set up my own recording system. However, every time I try to record using the windows audio recorder or adobe audition, I keep getting the error that wave input devices recording failed. Please help.
How do I solve wave input devices recording failed?
Since you are trying to record something, make sure your sound card is installed properly. The “wave input devices” mentioned in the error message refers to the device you are using to record sound. If you are using an external microphone to record audio, check the microphone jack if it is connected properly to your sound card.
Try doing a sound test with your microphone to make sure you are hearing something. Click “Start,” “Control Panel,” “Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices,” and then “Sounds and Audio Devices.” On the next screen, select “Voice” tab and click “Test hardware” under “Voice recording” section.
Follow the succeeding instructions to perform the test on your microphone. Before performing the test, check if your microphone comes with a driver when you bought it. If it does, then install it before testing the microphone. If it doesn’t, then it should work and pass the test. If you encounter problems during the test, the problem could be from the sound card.
Try reinstalling the sound card and update its driver. To update the driver, visit the sound card manufacturer’s website and see if there is an updated driver for your model.
