    I have a US-144mkII with a microphone plugged into the Mic IN L XLR. Windows 10 only sees this as a "Line In" and not a microphone. when I try to do a mic test I get no audio in the Microsoft audio settings test when the US-144mkII is set as the default input device. All the other sound devices (built-in mic on the laptop, USB camera) show as microphones in the windows sound settings AND show sound input using the mic test in windows settings. When I make the US-144mkII the default input device, I get no reading on the test (I do see the SIG/OL led blink, so I do have audio on that input)
