Seeing this warning in the recorder?

This shows up when we can’t detect much sound from your mic after 5 seconds or so. There are a couple of reasons for this:

(1) Your external mic is muted 🔇

Some external mics have a mute button on the mic itself. Double-check your mic isn’t muted on the hardware before recording.

(3) You mic is not selected or connected 🔌

Double-check that your microphone is selected in Tella and that its hardware is connected properly

(2) It’s quiet and you have a good quality mic 🎙

Good mics can block out a lot of background noise and isolate to your voice. This means it’s very quiet when you’re not speaking. If this is the case for you then you can ignore the warning.

In general if you can see sound appearing on the mic icon while you speak, then your mic should be fine.
