I recently installed my adobe premiere elements 11 on my new MacBook Pro.
Previously, I used that on my windows computer and it worked fine to do narrations with my Blue Yeti mic.
I started editing a video on the Mac this week, and when I tried to do a narration, it didn’t work.
I went to preferences, Audio hardware, Default device
and changed from MacBook Pro speakers to Yeti Stereo Microphone, which is my external microphone I used in premiere on my old Windows laptop.
The Preferences - Audio hardware window doesn’t show asio preferences (like it does on windows) for input audio. It only shows Default device.
Ive changed the default device to my yet microphone but when I open the narration window and click record, it keeps saying ”your current audio hardware selection does not have any input channels. Please use Preferences-Audio Hardware-Default Device to correct this problem”.
Is this an issue that can be solved without having to invest on another editor software?
I'm not sure why your Mac isn't installing your microphone and making it available to Premiere Elements, but that's where the problem lies. In the OS. So it isn't 'fixed' in any version of the software that I'm aware of.
However, if you want to check, I'd recommend you download the free trial of version 2019 and see if narration with the mike works with it.
Newer versions of the program have got more sophisticated setting for working with USB microphones, so it's definitely worth a shot.
