Default [newbie]Audio record source

I use the comms/fldigi package to decode radio signals. Fldigi uses portaudio, but I can't select the external microphone input on my laptop.

In /etc/mixerctl.conf I tried:


but the program still records via the internal microphone.

Laptop is HP PAVILION 15-dw with ALC236 soundcard.
combined headset (headphone+mic) jack

Can someone help me select the default external microphone?

if want want to set a external mic here is what you can do
in your rc.conf.local you want
sndiod_flags= -f rsnd/2 -s play -m play -f rsnd/1  -m rec -s rec
you will need to change what rsnd to the mic and headphone, also you need
export AUDIOPLAYDEVICE=snd/play
export AUDIORECDEVICE=snd/rec
in your .xinitrc or what ever way you start x

Thank you, dcc. At least I am helped with this. Only now I understand how I must use subdevices from different audio devices. And it works!

I wondered if the environmental variables documented in the OpenBSD man pages. Well, of course, so i found them in sndio(7).
