I need to use the Snowball iCE for a project of mine that just uses sound input to trigger video effects. I have done simple applications like this before and never had any problems but now that I have plugged the microphone into my computer the only audio device that comes up is ASIO for C-Media USB DAC Device
I also get an error:
RtApiAsio::getDeviceInfo: error (Hardware input or output is not present or available.) initializing driver (ASIO for C-Media USB DAC Device)
I tried uninstalling the driver but that has made no difference. It does not matter if the device is plugged in or not. I saw a similar forum topic on the matter but is there not a better solution than recompiling rtAudio to ignore ASIO?
Windows 8.1 OF-0.8.0 VS-2012
Edit: I tested in in OF-0.7.4 and it works though oddly enough it also broke MaxMSP 5.19, I have contacted C-Media about this hopefully they will have a solution.
Edit: C-Media was of no help, trick was I was always using direct sound and the blue snowball made my audio change to ASIO which only had the one device on it. Seems like one could get away without having to recompile the RtAudio lib if one flags they are using direct sound but it turned out to be beneficial in the long run. RtAudio would crash if the device got unplugged while the application was running. Problem seems to be sorted out now.
