I would like to record with an external USB mic (Blue Snowball) but do not know how to switch to it and how to control its input volume. Also, I would need to turn off the inbuilt mic. I have a PowerBook G4 1.67GHz, running Xubuntu 9.04 with Audacity. The alsamixer does allow me to toggle the mic switch but does not show any controls for the mic. What do I have to do?
