Android: NTrack automatically records phone microphone, not through USB C port


I’m using a Samsung A53. I’m trying to record audio via a usbc port (which I have a 3.5mm aux cable plugged into - I’m trying to record the show I’m doing for my deputy!), however n-track is only taking the mobile phone microphone, rather than through the usb-c port.

I’ve done it before, but it’s now refusing to work and I have no idea why!

I’ve tried going through the audio settings however on Audio-in it lists the usb-c port as “unknown” and the out as “usb-c audio 3.5mm”.

Any help would be amazing!

Thank you!

Make sure that the cable that is connected to the USB-C port has a mic, i.e. if you connect a regular set of headphones (as opposed to a headset that has headphones plus mic) the device will see it as an output only device. When the device sees an USB input and you select the Android USB drivers, n-Track should record automatically from the external USB input. If you instead select the n-Track USB drivers, then you may need to manually select the USB input and output device in the Settings box.
