can you hear the audio if you put an audio file (wav, aiff, or mp3) on an audio track and hit play? can you see your levels on the mixer bouncing up and down? Please answer me, THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!!!

did you arm the track?

this has been asked but you didn't answer (i don't think).

if you see the green lights bouncing up and down on a track when you bang on the keyboard then the signal is coming in, but you have to enable the track... its the button to the right of the track (in arrange view). will be red when it's armed.

P.S. press TAB to switch from Arrange to Session view and back again.

To play an instrument, set input 'track' on. also arm the track, or monitor to 'in'.and of course put an instrument in it. and if this instrument is a simpler, put a soundfile in it....
And please please please read the manual.
MacBook Pro 13" Retina i7 2.8 GHz OS 10.13, L10.0.1, M4L.
iMac 27" Retina i5 3,2 GHz OS 10.11.3 L10.0.1 M4L.

Guys,

good afternoon...

DO we (and I put myself as well in as a contributor to teh forum) really need to answer these type of questions on teh forum to someone who have not even bothered to look at teh manual and infinite resources on line on the subject?

Are you serious?? 3 pages of posts??


In my view:
oreofe before even start asking a question, please have a look at the manual and do not post this basic stuff.

Bye

Well we were trying to help and see what the problem was, but you know... if the guy doesn't even know how to bring an audio file into Live, then yes, he should RTFM because he won't even know how to accomplish what we are suggesting.

true...

but chastising people for helping this guy is like jumping all over someone's case for giving change to a bum. "he'll never get a job if you keep giving him pocket change!"

so a few of us took a minute or two out of our day to reply... i guess that makes us enablers. :evil:
