Can't hear audio after recording/on playback?

Post by empirix » Tue Jun 26, 2012 10:29 pm

Ok i find this bizarre!! Only using ableton a couple of days, all was well until....

I recorded an external hardware synth bass line, again all was fine, set up the audio track, could see the input signal, i record, i can see its being recorded, waveform etc. I stop recording, i playback the recording/waveform and i get no sound - like wtf?

I've been all over the settings and all appears to be well
I'm baffled

Anybody know whats going on?
cheers

I'm quite a bit late , but if you look at the column for the audio, there should be a number at the bottom. If the number is orange, then it is playing. If it is gray, you can click it to make it play.

I had the exact same problem and the above advise is pure bollix. To resolve the problem, which is inherent to the program, simply delete the preconfigured tracks that Ableton Live 9.5 provides by right clicking on the track parameter area and choosing delete. Then, right click in the same area and choose insert audio track. Configure it as you did before and voila, you get recorded audio that will play back. This can be distinguished by a black wave form as opposed to gray.
An answer to almost any question can be found in mythology.
