Using a Blue Yeti USB microphone, connected to a Dell dock, connected to a laptop on
Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS.
The external mic is set as the default through a startup script (
pactl set-default-source alsa_input.usb-Generic_Blue_Microphones_LT_2007170933195F390975_111000-00.analog-stereo), and it is correctly identified whenever I reboot.
The problem is that even though the mic is listed there and selected, it does not actually receive any input unless I disconnect and reconnect the usb/power cable in the microphone.
Any ideas on what could be causing this?
