No Output To Speakers

Postby Stephenchrry » Tue Jan 05, 2021 1:11 pm

Hello all.
Apollogies as I'm a bit of a newb to home recording and need a little help with Ableton and my ACEPC computer
I have a Focusrite Scarlett solo 3rd Gen.
My setup is as follows:
Guitar to INST IN on the front panel of the Scarlet.
Scarlet connected to an ACEPC Windows 10 computer via the USB connection supplied.
Ableton Live Lite installed with ASIO set up in preferences
3.5mm Stereo out headphones from the PC to the RCA inputs of my power amp.
The sound output settings in the PC are set to headphones
I get a signal showing on the master out level indicators in Ableton but nothing coming out of the speakers from the power amp.
Can anybody help……..

Leave your computer alone, all audio should be coming out of your interface. Set your PC preferences for the Focusrite to be the default audio device. Plug your headphones in the headphone socket of your interface, and use its main L-R outputs to feed your amplifier. Also, in Ableton, make sure your master channel´s outputs are set to both "1/2" (for the mains out) and "3/4" (for your headphones). This last bit might have changed, it´s been a while since I last used Ableton...
