[pulseaudio-discuss] How to define a pulseaudio profile that ignores the “input” capabilities of a microphone

I have a Blue Yeti microphone, which has a microphone jack and acts as an
output device. However I do not want pulse audio to use this device to
output sound.

After browsing for hours it seems that the most sensible solution would be

- define an udev rule for the device that loads a custom configuration for
- define a custom configuration for the device, which sets its direction to
"input" only

I tried to do this, but it failed:


I cannot find a way to get any logs, and I do not know what would be a
sensible way to define such a profile. Do you have any suggestions?

I'm running Ubuntu 20.04.

Thank you in advance,
