Hi all...while I am a long time user of BIAB-Windows, I am a new user of the Mac version...My question is simple, and I am a bit ashamed I can't figure it out...

I can certainly route the MIDI through the IAC to sampletank, or Sfz, put the instruments on the correct channel, and be fine.

I can even select the instruments in the plug ins...but I have been unable to get sounds using just the plugins...tried changing channels, forcing MIDI, etc..yet, I can hear the sound when I activate the keyboard..just nothing when I hit play (even though the mixer shows messages in the channel).

Can anyone give me some hints as to what I might be missing?

I figure it has to be simple, I am just not seeing it...

thanks!

Steve

You can start by selecting the default Built-In DLS as your output, instead of the IAC or other external drivers, then quit and restart BBox and see if that hasn't fixed it. Other than that I'm afraid I don't have the answer for you. You'll have much more success with solving this if you create your own thread dedicated to just your issues.

Try what Icelander says, and also make sure you have the proper audio output device selected in BIAB.

Go to the "Preferences..." menu item and click the "Audio" button, then click the "Audio Devices" button.

Here is what I have set up, I am using an M-Audio interface that is also my system default device.
hopefully this helps.
