No Audio Coming From Audacity...

Greetings! Long time lurker, first time poster.

I just installed the latest version of Audacity on a laptop computer. Temporarily, I’m running from a mixer to a V8 Sound Card to my PC. It records just fine…but when I try to listen to it, I can see the Output Meters kicking…but zero audio. My headphones plug into the same jack on the V8 for both recording and playback…so why can I hear a track record through my cans, but not hear it play back? I’ve checked every setting on both Audacity and my PC and everything looks correct…but something ain’t right.

Could my V8 Soundcard go bad on just Playback?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Did you select the V8 as your [u]Playback Device[/u]?

Yep…V8 selected for Input and Output. As I said, I know Audacity is recording because the VU meters kick during playback…there’s just no audio coming through. Zip. None. Nada. I don’t have a clue what to do other than try another Audio Interface. I’m looking at the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 3rd gen Interface. It’s quite popular among Voice Over artists…which is what I do.

I’m still open to suggestions if anybody thinks of anything. As always, Thanks in advance.

This is not likely your issue, but a mismatch in your sample rate could cause this problem.
