Hooking up 2 usb microphobes

2021-01-12, 17:32 PM

I just bought a new Thinkpad two months ago. I’m a podcaster and tried to set up 2 usb microphones to it to podcast (using Anchor.) My computer would not recognize one of the microphones. What is the best and easiest (I am not computer savvy) way to get both usb microphones to work so we can record on my a Thinkpad. Thanks.  (Using only one microphone is not working well. Sound is bad and we both have to hunch over for 2 hours. It won’t work long term.). Having 2 is a must).

Hi EllenBest!


Welcome to Lenovo Forums Community. 


How bad is the recording? Can you attach a short audio clip? Try uninstalling the audio driver and restart the computer. If the issue is the same, install the BIOS and the audio driver manually from our support site: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en. Just provide the exact model or the serial number of your laptop and go to the Drivers and Software tab. Then click on manual update.
You might be needing a third-party device like an audio connector to have the 2 mic setup on the computer. This will also help you improve the quality of sound as well. You may also check from fellow podcasters a similar setup without compromising the audio quality.
