I have the latest Catalina installed on my Kabylake based laptop with Apple ALC (255 - layout 3).
Along with these, I have Codec Commander and EliteMacx86's fix for headphone port distortion.

The problem is, whenever a microphone is connected in the audio port, it's not detected as a mic.

Any help would be appreciated!

Note: There's only 1 port. It's used for both input and output.

Yes, it works fine with Windows 10 when set as a 'Headset'.
Okay. When you plug it, does it recognises it?
A custom XML is required for this process.
