I have a turntable with USB output. The only way I can hear anything is by opening Audacity and selecting the play thru option.
Is there any way to configure Windows 7 to let me simply hear my records w/o using Audacity?
Barring that, is there another simple minded program I can use instead of Audacity.
I only need Audacity when I edit my audio.
You should be able to open the Window Control Panels and tell them to route the turntable sound to the speakers.
I hear nothing when I do that.
I’m not a Windows Elf. We need to wait for one of those.
Right-click over the speaker icon by the system clock, then choose “Recording Devices”. Right-click over the USB turntable CODEC then choose “Properties”. Then click the "Listen " tab and put a tick (checkmark) in “Listen to this device”. Choose the playback device to send the input to. OK and OK.
Then unmute your chosen playback device.
