Hey guy's, Im moving slow here..real slow!
I got my 6i6 installed it plays through the speakers, I cant seem to get any sound out of the frt input!
Im trying to play a guitar through it, as of now Im just using the basic software that came with the 6i6
The halo light does light up when I strum the guitar, just no sound?
BIB & Windows Media play fine.
What am I missing here? I do have it set to Instrument no sound out of 1 or 2 frt side.
If it matters,my line outputs 1&2 are running into a fender amp that has RCA inputs, I should have a set of HS8 monitors tomorrow, according to UPS tracking
Windows 10 64 bit...
I dont mind being the dummy here, hopefully its something simple?
I've been trying to get it to play for hours!

Can you attach a screenshot of your Focusrite software mixer? There's a lot of settings on it and you may not have something routed from the input to the output channel.

There's a dozen ways to do the routing through the mixer. I have the older gen mixer software but I believe Matt has the newer one. At any rate, one of us may be able to help.

Steve, good thing is it just started playing, bad thing is I don't know what I did? I'm about mentally spent from trying to do all sorts of software stuff that I'm not good at!
Anyway, I got family time to deal with also the rest of this evening.
I know what ever I did was right in the basic software.
Tomorrow I'll try and see what I did..
Please keep an eye on me here if ya can.
Thanks!

Yeah, there's definitely a learning curve on the software mixers since they allow so much routing ability. The .PDF docs for the software are always a good place to start.

Good Luck!

Steve is correct; I have several Focusrite units, both generations. One thing I did with each one is to document every setting of every connection. It has saved me a few times. Do that now, while everything works.

Copy that Matt!
I might add there is a huge difference in sound quality running through the 6i6 rather than my Laptop headphone jack!
But that should really change tomorrow, I'll no longer be running through my little practice amp, UPS should be dropping off my
Yamaha HS8 Monitors tomorrow.
Also the last week Ive been putting together a studio room. I got everything in place other than the speakers. Now if I can only wrap my head around all this new software. My next challenge will be getting some guitar amp effects flowing..Needless to say I'm very intimidated yet very excited lol
Stay tuned guys, I certainly do appreciate the help!

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=458716 - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.

#TechTipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® Patch Updates

If you're ever experiencing an issue with your Band-in-a-Box program, make sure you have the most recent patch update for your version - this can be done at http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm.

Patch updates are released frequently, and are created by our development team to fix any reported bugs, tweak existing features within the program, update demos and other files as needed, and more!

To find out which version of the program you have, visit Help | About Band-in-a-Box within the program. You will see the full version number listing as:
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2018 (512)

The number in parentheses is the build number. As you can see, my Band-in-a-Box is up to date and will continue to stay that way because I've selected "Automatically check for updates every 7 days" within the Help | Check for Updates.... option (you can set the number of days to a different number). This window will also look to see if you're version is up to date, so you don't technically have to visit http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm if you didn't want to!

Once you've installed your patch update (make sure the program is closed when you're doing this), give it another try - if you are still experiencing the same issue you can report it by contacting us directly, or you can post your result to the Forum thread that also announces the patch update, like our recent Band-in-a-Box 2018 Build 512 Update (Feb 15) post.
