Hmm.  On Mojave I see miniAudicle on the System Preferences => Privacy 
settings under "Microphone".  I don't remember if I did anything to 
grant access, but it does appear for me.  Can someone shed some light on 
this issue?

There will be some audio device-related fixes in the next release, but 
likely unrelated to this.

Good question.  Will look into it.
