Can't hear through headphones

I’m using Audacity 3.0.0 on Windows 10. Uploaded it two days ago. Can’t hear through my headphones. Using a Focusrite Scarlett. Have checked ALL settings in my system, in the program, in sound tabs I never even knew existed before. Everything is pointing to my Scartlett. Also followed suggestion to check the ‘software playthrough’ tab in recording preferences. Sill nothing. Any thoughts on why I’m not getting sound through my headphones? Appreciate any thoughts. Thanks.

It could be perhaps more helpful to say exactly which Scarlett system you have, how you have it hooked up, and exactly what you are trying to accomplish.

On the Solo and on the 2i2 there is a Direct Monitor control, so this should allow you to hear whatever is coming into you microphone. If you can’t hear anything, it could be your microphone, your headphones or the volume control. This shouldn’t have anything to do with Audacity. If this works OK, but you are having some other problem, post back.

I hope this helps. :smiley:
