OK, this’ll take some expert about 2 seconds to answer but it’s sure got me beat. I’ve got Windows 7 on a Foxconn 2ADA 1.00 Motherboard. The sound I THINK is coming directly off the board, I wish I was a tech-head with computers but I can’t see a soundcard in there, the speakers are in a little jack adaptor that converts their smooth-end jacks to one with a little ridge in it, which I know is necessary to make stereo (though don’t ask me to describe why, I’m only the synth player here!)
I’ve got IDT High Definition Codec as the input, Speakers/Headphones (IDT High Definition Codec) as the output. When I record, I get a nice fat waveform. That seems to be fine. When I press playback, all the little green lines are flashing - I just can’t HEAR anything! Yet I know those settings CAN work because I downloaded NCH Tap Recorder (note: do NOT ever have NCH Tap and Audacity running simultaneously, you will get a blue screen of death!) and recorded using that without changing any settings anywhere. That played back fine. Imported the file into Audacity, all the lights flashed, no sound. It’s the latest version, 2.0.1.
How do I get sound out of it? And why do the settings that work for NCH Tap NOT work for Audacity (or are they working? I’m getting flashing lines of light and wave forms don’t forget. And if I export the waveform as a .WAV/MP3, everything else plays it fine. It’s just Audacity that’s silent.)
And it’s Audacity I use to make/check recordings all the time, cos it’s BETTER than the NCH ones - when it works!
I promise I’ll try anything anyone tells me and report back if asked to.
