Error when trying to use microphone. PTB-ERROR

Hi everyone!

OS (e.g. Win10): Win10
PsychoPy version (e.g. 1.84.x): v2022.2.5
Standard Standalone? (y/n) : y
What are you trying to achieve?: My participant will see a word on screen and have to pronounce it.

What did you try to make it work?: I have two task with the microphone. Everything worked well, I added the second task with the same parameter as the first microphone response, and now I cannot launch my experiment. I’ve tried to use another audio library. I use the correct audiodevice and my microphone responses also. I don’t know what’s going wrong? If I disable the second microphone component, then everything goes well. It has exactly the same settings as the first mic.

Does anyone has an idea how to fix this?
Thank you for your time and help.


What specifically went wrong when you tried that?:
