Hi,
Anyone else had this...?

If I use the new WAS driver in Realband somehow my laptop doesn't recognise when I plug in headphones: music continues to play through the laptop speaker rather than headphones.

I do not have this problem with Band In A Box.

I can go into the Realband audio setup and manually select headphones but having to do this each time is tiresome. If I select the MME driver then headphone use is detected automatically.

Any ideas from those far more technically literate than I?

Regards

Phil

It's probably the sound card. On my laptop, if I select MME, I can easily switch between speakers and headphones by just plugging in the headphones. However, if I use the ASIO driver, I have to configure it to use either the speakers our the headphones. I suspect it's similar for the WAS driver. Try opening the WAS control panel and see if you can switch it there.

I'm not sure if this is related:

From the release notes for 2018:
Quote:
Windows Audio (WASAPI) driver format support. This allows for low latency audio recording/playback without requiring ASIO. Note: this supports 1 stereo input plus 1 stereo output at a time.

For multiple inputs/outputs, you should continue to use either MME or ASIO.

Hi.
Thanks all for the answers. I understand WAS doesn’t support multiple ins and outs and so can see the logic of having to choose headphones as an output manually. But what I can’t figure out is why on the same machine (same souncard and setup obviously) in Band in a Box the selection happens automatically when I plug the headphones in. What has BIAB got that RealBand hasn’t?

Regards

Phil

Good point. We plan to make it a setting, with the default that it will work like Band-in-a-Box.

Feedback - The Way I Use Band-in-a-Box and How It Changed My Music Career

Thank you to forum user Torrey Bliss for their amazing feedback, The way I use Band In A Box and how it changed my music career!

"I wanted to put up a post about how I got started using Band In A Box in order to help someone who is just getting started using the program to be be able to see the potential uses of BIAB for a musician and explain my procedure when composing a song.

I began using BIAB about 10 years ago after seeing some things online about the program and thought it might work for me. I had just accepted a staff position as a worship leader at a medium size church (250-300 people) and had been put in charge of all music. The problem I immediately encountered was that there were no available musicians to help me. This is where BIAB saved the day. I was able to quickly construct many professional sounding songs that I would be able to use in the services and play my guitar or keyboards along with and provide an excellent set of music for our church to sing along with..."
