No Sound in Headphones on playback

Post by kenelwell » Thu Jan 11, 2018 4:11 pm

Im brand new to this, so forgive me for not knowing technical terms...

I am not hearing anything upon playback in my headphones after recording. I can hear my voice when recording, though. If I change the output in the drop down away from my Audiobox USB96 to the computer speakers, I get sound.

Two questions, I guess:

1. How do I get playback sound in my headphones

2.If I can't change this output dilema, will this affect anything once I upload the podcast to another platform? Will others have the same issue if they download?

Are he headphones plugged into the Audiobox?

If you select the correct playback device, they should work.

Do the headphones work when you listen to something with Windows Media Player?

If someone can play a WAV or MP3 file, they should be able to play your MP3 or WAV file.

If I plu headphones directly into my computer, they work. They also work when plugged in to the Audiobox USB96 while Im recording, but nothing when I try to playback what I Just recorded.

Does playback worth with the Audiobox USB96 from other applications (such as Windows Media Player)?
