USB microphone detected but not recording

Hello I am noob here, finally after few attempts moving to Linux for good.
I just installed NEEWER NW-8000 USB microphone. I followed many suggestions from the forum but it appears despite microphone being detected is not recording.

AlsaMixer /proc/asound/cards is showing USBMIC at usb-000:00:1d.0-1.4, Full Speed
When selected, I get a message across the screen : “This sound device does not have any playback controls.”

Pulse Audio app ‘Input devices’ option is showing USB-MIC Mono but without recording bar.

When I mute audio (Pulse Audio app) I can see change of status from muted:no to muted:yes with with “pacmd list sources” command

For strange reasons it is showing second microphone “Front Microphone” which appear to be associated with Buit-in Audio Analog Stereo. This happens without any microphone connected to 3.5mm jack.
When I connect microphone to this jack, the microphone works fine with recording bar oscillating.
Another oddity I noticed when recording from USB microphone and nothing connected to 3.5mm jack in PulseAudio-InputDevices “Front Microphone” recording bar is oscillating.

I am using Skype. Pulse Audio app is acknowledging Skype in Recording and Playback Tab.

This is PC dual boot computer with Windows 7 and Skype works fine with this USB microphone

Any help appreciated.

Hey @henasau :wink:

Did you try to change the profile under configuration in pavucontrol?

The other profile for USB-MIC is “Multichannel Input” but it didn’t make any difference.
Built-in Audio profile was set to “Analog Stereo Duplex”. When I changed into “Analog Stereo Output” I could get rid off second microphone but USB microphone is still not recording - no recording bar.

chip id please?

Also this could be helpful:

sudo dmesg | grep "snd\|usb"

I tried to upload screenshots but it wasn’t allowed.
Please let me know how to do it.

@henasau Please no screenshots of simple text which you can just copy and paste. And please format it as code like:

Thanks

PS: If it is a window or any graphical stuff or you have no chance to catch the text, then of course screenshots are to prefer.

Thank you. Hopefully this is OK now

Maybe this is significant. Previous output was when MIC connected to USB3.0 port.
The following is for MIC connected to USB2.0 port. In both cases MIC is not working.

[ 31.686278] usb 1-1.5: cannot submit urb 0, error -28: not enough bandwidth

What I see in general is that the MIC works in USB1 mode with 12M, even if the port support 3.0 or 2.0, but it needs a higher bandwidth to work properly. So it troughs this error:

Looks more like a driver and kernel problem. I would advice first to switch to another kernel. According to this Ubuntu 18.04 with kernel 5.3 works. You are running:

Maybe try to downgrade to linux54 and see if it works there.

Thank you for taking time to help me.
So you think I should change to another distribution? Pity, I was happy with Manjaro.
It might be a silly question but I am noob in Linux.
What are chances this USB problem is going to be fixed soon?
It seems USB MICs are getting more and more popular.

No ^^ The kernel is the same on every distro, just the version differs.

As i think, this MIC of this chipid: 0a67:ffff is rather a generic one and even on linux-hardware.com it is not known. So I would say: Buy a more popular MIC which has at least a decent chipid and not such noname bullshit. Sorry…

You can also experiment with the driver and adjuste it. Here is an example how it can be done, but this rather an advanced setup:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Professional_audio#M-Audio_Fast_Track_Pro

You need in general set the mic to only one channel, because USB1.1 cannot handle 2 channels:

I would say no chance, since only mac and windows are supported. If the linux kernel devs don’t know it, then they don’t care.

Thanks again. To downgrade the kernel, do I have to wipe it out and reinstall from scratch?
I mean reinstall manjaro from scratch

Oh sorry, i did not explain that xD

You can install a kernel with:

sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux54

and list them with

mhwd-kernel -l

AND

mhwd-kernel -li

However there is also a GUI called “Manjaro Settings” there you should be able to install them also.

You will need to reboot and select another Kernel at boot time on the grub bootloader menu.

So I will have an extra option in my boot menu for manjaro kernel 54??
How this will affect future updates?

It will update the kernels separately? LTS (Long term) Kernels last very long so no worry about problems there. Only at stable ones, which are deprecated after 2-3 Months, you should care to switch soon.

Have look here: https://www.kernel.org/

yes, under advanced there should be another option for linux54.

Thank you. You have been very helpful. I have all the answers. I am going to mark it as resolved

I downgraded the kernel to Linux54 with
sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux54
but I am not getting extra option in boot menu. When I run Manjaro I still have:
[ 0.682978] usb usb1: Manufacturer: Linux 5.10.34-1-MANJARO ehci_hcd

When I run:
mhwd-kernel -l
output
available kernels:

  • linux414
  • linux419
  • linux44
  • linux49
  • linux510
  • linux511
  • linux512
  • linux54
  • linux54-rt
  • linux59-rt

When I run
mhwd-kernel -li
output
The following kernels are installed in your system:

  • linux510
  • linux54
    What to do to run Manjaro with downgraded kernel 54

If you run just Manjaro:

Then it will choose the last used kernel,

You have to choose the option below “Manjaro”, this will guide you to a sub option where all kernels and fallback kernels are listed. Like this:

If so, then grub needs to be updated. Normally mhwd would do it for you:

sudo update-grub

Maybe GRUB_DISABLE_SUBMENU=y is set at /etc/default/grub ?

My bad. All the options were under advanced options. My silly mistake.
Unfortunately problem still exists. It is a pity because this MIC sounds really well.
