BlueYeti Microphone occasionally stops detecting input until hotplug

Hi all,

Recently got a BlueYeti mic and am running into some issues. It works fine at first and I can detect input both in sound settings and OBS, the volume input indicator updates accurately when it detects sound.

It seems like intermittently it stops detecting sound, even though the input itself is still detected, the input indicator doesn’t update, and trying to record doesn’t capture any input.

Oddly, a reboot itself doesn’t fix the issue, and I need to hotplug the microphone USB cable to resolve.

It doesn’t seem like anything is muted anywhere, I’ve checked in several mixers.

Kernel: 5.18.17-1
DE: Cinnamon
Sound: Pipewire

// Hotplug and re-connect seems to resolve the issue temporarily

Still can’t figure this out :frowning:

Maybe there’s something going on with the detection of high-speed USB device on boot? Or is pipewire just not ready for this ye?

Seems odd it’s detected fine, but only works after a hotplug

BAD (On Boot)
