In the Audio Set> Drivers> make sure your ASIO device is selected and the output port is selected for that device. Then you need to pull up your ASIO device's control panel and make sure the volume slider for the output is turned up. This is where I would look at first.

On my laptop, if I run MME, then I can select the "speakers and headphones" driver for the internal soundcard and all works well. If I plug in headphones, I hear through the headphones; if headphones are unplugged, then I hear everything through the speakers.

When I use ASIO, however, I have to specify a different driver for headphones versus speakers; so sometimes you just have to experiment (like I did) with the different settings to figure out what works and what doesn't. It took me a fair amount or trial and error to finally get the settings right for the different scenarios.

On my M-Audio Delta 44 the control panel can only be accessed in win/7 down in the bottom right where it says shows hidden icons. Different sound cards are different though as well as operating systems so you need to let us know what setup you have.

OK guy's....got my wife to check this out for me cause she is way more computer savy than me.. we are operating with windows 7 on a HP computer i don't know where to find what kind of sound card we have...or external as was mentioned in an above post....my wife say's all i was able to download was the manuel to ASIO, it wouldn't let me have the program...she even tried to download from a couple of different sites to no avail..

now in one of my earlier post Rharv said i didn't need ASIO...so is this a windows 7 thing?...that amplitube 3 will work with windows 7 without ASIO..

all the tutorials i watched PG music was running ASIO...and i'm just trying to get this most out my BIAB and Realband i can get..

can't understand why it won't let me download it....my wife tried a couple of different sites..

thanks for ya'll input on this problem..

You need ASIO if:
You are going to play a VSTi synth in realtime (using a keyboad controller), or
You are going to sing or play an instrument through an effect in realtime, like plugging your guitar into the computer and using an Amp Sim for the sound.

Otherwise, if you are not putting realtime demands on your system MME is fine.

I'm running Windows 7 64-bit on an HP Pavilion DV7 laptop computer. ASIO4ALL works great with the internal soundcard as long as you set it correctly. I also alternately plug in my M-Audio FastTrack Pro (which also works great), and also my TASCAM US-800 (for which I've not gotten MIDI to work yet, but haven't had the time to really troubleshoot it).

You didn't say whether your computer was a desktop or laptop and you didn't say which ASIO driver you are using. Let us know and we can maybe get to the bottom of this.

Hi cajun, what do you have your guitar plugged into? Do you have an external hardware device you are using?

but i need to get this ASIO driver thing figured out...or i won't be able to do it

Ok so now I know you don't have an external hardware sound device & you have a HP desktop tower running windows 7. Cajun I am not sure if you have an internal soundcard that has ASIO drivers? Anyway to be able to monitor the input signal and record direct with the amplitude effect you will need a device that has ASIO. You can record your guitar thru the mic or line input and then add the amplitude effect to it after you record it on a track without having ASIO though if you want to go that route. Let us know any other info you might have about the internal sound card you have.

how much do one of these cost...and whats a pretty good one?....and that is the correct name of them...an external hardware sound device?

thanks

Songwriting Feedback - "Why This Forum Matters"

Our Forum is a great resource when you're wanting to discuss Band-in-a-Box (or other PG Music Inc. programs), but it's so much more!

In addition to the different sections we have for our products (Band-in-a-Box, RealBand, PowerTracks, and Other PG Music Programs), there are also places on our Forum to share your songs, YouTube videos, ask for tech help for problems not related to our software, "off topic" discussions, and more!

Forum user David Snyder shared his thoughts on Why This Forum Matters in his recent Songwriting post, which has some great feedback, including:

It occurred to me this morning that it is the group effort that counts. That is, one kind word about another member's song, one piece of encouragement or generous suggestion, might cause that person to write the greatest song ever written, which might then go on to have a massive impact on some stranger's life, cause someone to fall in love, or turn their life around, and literally change the course of history. Because songs do that.

OR, one kind word given to YOU might cause you to write the greatest song ever written in the coming year, and that song could go on to have an impact on untold thousands. Who knows! It happens all the time.

But the point is, it is not about any one of us, it is about all of us, the group.

Read through the whole conversation (and join in!): http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=447431

...and a big THANK YOU to David for sharing his thoughts!
