Mycroft Core on RPi 3 no sound

I am in no way a seasoned raspberry pi or Linux user, but I am trying to get Mycroft core to run on my Pi with MagicMirror installed. It is using the latest Raspbian image (not lite). I followed all instructions and tried two different types of USB microphones and I can get no sound or recognition. The usb devices show up in alsamixer and I’ve tried just about every volume and combination. I start Mycroft using ./ debug and it will let me type commands, but I hear nothing… Please help!

What version of RPi 3? B or B+?

It is a 3B, but apparently I need to use at least 20 characters…

OK, the first thing we should try here is the audio troubleshooting for Picroft;

Did this help at all?
