Blue Snowball Mics have revolutionized the industry and they are a true definition of HD mics that you can get for best ever sound recordings, voiceovers and communication. These mics work over the USB interface so you can get better and faster data transfer rates on them. So, you will not have any issues with Discord working with the Snowball most likely. However, if Blue Snowball is not working out for you with the Discord, you will need to troubleshoot it and here is how you can do it.
Blue Snowball Not Working With Discord
1) Check the Connection
The first thing that you will have to check in case Blue Snowball is not working for you with the Discord is that it should be connected properly with the USB port. With the USB port, you must already know that there are problems if the USB plug of mic is not inserted properly and that will cause the Mic to not work with the Blue Snowball.
What you need to do here is pull out the USB plug from its socket and then you will have to plug it back in. This will most likely solve the problem for you and you will be able to use your Mic with the Discord once again.
2) Check the Snowball Drivers
In addition to your regular drivers, you get to have an optimized controller from Snowball that ensures maximum connectivity and optimal performance with the Mic and all the software on your PC. So, you need to make sure that the Snowball software is installed correctly and not making any mess for you.
You might need to reset it to default settings as it might be restricting the access of Discord to your mic resources and resetting will make it work for you. You might also need to update the driver software and that should be enough to solve the problem for you and you will be able to use the Blue Snowball with Discord.
3) Check the Default input device
You need to check on the default input device as well and make sure that you have the Blue Snowball selected there. When you are connecting an external Mic, your computer might not be able to use it as the default device and you will feel like it is not working for Discord. So, you will need to change that and once you have set your default audio input device to the Blue Snowball, you will be able to use it easily with Discord as well without having any sort of issues.
4) Check Permissions
The last thing that you will need to check is the permission for the Discord to access your hardware resources and Mic as well. So, once you have set the Blue Snowball as your default audio input device and you allow Discord app the permission to access the audio device and Mic, you will be able to use it with Discord without getting any problems and you can record audios, send voice messages or communicate through the calls over Blue Snowball pretty easily.
