I’m trying to integrate my framework laptop with my podcast audio setup, and I’d like to use the onboard 3.5mm jack to pipe in audio from my mixer by using it as an audio input. For some reason however I can’t get that device to show up as an input - only an output (headphones) - in Windows 11.
The 3.5mm cable is coming from a 1/4" stereo to 3.5mm stereo cable from an AUX send on my mixer, sending a known good signal - I was using the same output and cable to pipe audio into my last laptop, and I can get audio through it using a 3.5mm USBC adapter on the framework. I’m trying to eliminated that last adapter to avoid extra noise on my input signal.
I’ve been in the MacOS world primarily for a while now, so I’m not sure if this is a Windows 11 issue, a driver issue, a Framework issue, or an idiot issue, but I’m open to suggestions. Windows 11 sound prefs & device manager aren’t showing any obvious way to tell Windows that the port is an input rather than an output.
