Preferred Solution: Sound not working on programs that use a midi sound file (Guitar pro, power tabs etc)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Sound not working on programs that use a midi sound file (Guitar pro, power tabs etc)

Doubleclick on the speaker icon in the system tray. Click Options then Properties, check all the boxs to show all the volume options. Then click ok. On the main speaker screen, make sure nothing is muted and everything is turned up (Microphone and CD Player shouldn't matter).

I have installed this Guitar Pro(hacked version) long ago through a link given by a friend. It was working well for so long.

I unsubscribe on my broadband for a short while(i asked the company to cut the broadband service). My software is still working even without internet connection. But when i subscribe again to the broadband service, the Guitar Pro seemed not to work well. I reinstalled the software but nothing happened, the same problem is encountered.

The details of the problem:

When i play the tablature of a song, the notes are moving but no sound is produced. I also checked the audio settings but there's nothing wrong in it. There is also no problem with the audio device because i can play songs in my Media player.

What do you think is wrong with my Guitar Pro? Thanks! By the way, its version is 5.2.

Installed GP6 on a new HDD after the old one went belly up.  Installled Guitar Pro 6 and when you click for "Soundbanks" (songs which come with the program and will will play on GP6) program opens (documents) folder.  The GP6 logo still appears at  the bottom of the page, but cannot access the song files.  This is an area I know absolutely nothing about, and am afraid to try and fix it. 
 
Am a noobie and would appreciate any help given.

A:Guitar Pro 6 defaults to documents instead of opening sound files in the GP6 pro

In GP6, "Soundbanks" are the audio samples that allow Guitar pro to play realistic sounds when replaying the song. Are you getting confused between opening a song (.gpx file) and importing a soundbank (.gpbank file)?
 
The default soundbanks should have been installed with the software (and if you've purchased any of the additional soundbank packs they should be installed through the updater along with the associated licence files)

I have several simple websites with MIDI sounds. I made these in MS Publisher.
I cannot get sounds from the websites nor from web preview of Publisher file.
I have checked IE 8 settings under tools/internet tools/advanced/mulimedia/playsounds is checked. The MIDI files on my computer play fine. I do have a website with .wav sound and it works fine. I am assuming the problem is with some setting in IE8 (the web preview in Publisher uses IE to give the preview).

This is recent problem-worked fine last month and another computer (Win2K) can access the sites with sound so the problem is with this one running Win7 and IE8.
Thanks much!
More info:Normally, the IE8 opens up as basic (I assume 32 bit) and the MIDI sounds on the websites are not heard. I opened up IE8 64 bit and everything works fine-all MIDIs etc sound OK.
The settings for both IE8 look the same.
Now my question is now: How do I change things for the basic IE8 to work. Since the Publisher file opens with the 32 then it also does not work. The basic IE 8 on my computer is described as version 8.0.7600.16385,Cipher Strenght:256 bit. The 64 bit version is listed as same version and cipher-- but 64 bit.
Thanks

I just finished using the virus boards here to eliminate a virus. During the course of the virus, but before I got help here, all my sound, except for my MIDI files, has been turned off. The virus board referred me to this board for help with this specific problem.

I know that nothing is muted, I have already checked that. Another example, I can play a WAV or MP3 in winamp, and I can clearly see the file is playing, but there is no sound. Same for games, etc. The only sound files I can play are MIDI files. The only reason I can think that this might happen is because months ago, I installed a Yamaha program for enhancing MIDIs, and maybe they are controlled only by that program which somehow escaped damage.
I think my sound card is a Realtek HD Audio. I am running Windows XP.

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

There was a brief power outage. I couldn't restart my computer. I took it to a computer shop. They said I needed a new power supply unit inside my computer. They installed that. They also recommended buying a battery pack. They said my surge protector would no longer be any good & a battery pack would give better protection than another surge protector.

I got home, hooked everything up again. Everything seems to be working now except I get no sound through my speakers. The speakers do have power. When I go to control panel, sounds & audio devices, audio tab, it says under playback devices that there are no playback devices. On the volume tab it says there is no audio device.

This is an E machine with Windows XP Home.

I have a digital audio workstation and I use midi devices with my system. Besides, it's a good way to link sound devices across systems into a single coordinated work station. Problem I'm finding though is that almost all new sound cards I've looked at no longer seem to support midi. And then there's the whole question as to whether or not they'd even work with Win 7.

I have a Creative Sound Blaster Live! with Live Drive that's several years old, that I wish I could get to work with Win 7, but I've had zero luck so far.

My main requirement in a sound card, besides being midi capable, is that it is quiet. No detectable line noise, that is. 24/96 capable is a big plus. Oh, it also must be PCI, not PCI express.

Got any suggestions?

1. My computer had some malware issues and some browser redirect issues (probably from before the more recent malware). I ran a full MBAM scan to get rid of Internet Security. I also ensured the .exe and .dll files were no longer present. I also ran a HijackThis scan and did manual removals. So far it looks like Internet Security is gone but I'm still getting redirects, youtube doesn't work (404 not found -ngix), and I can't access/edit/move/do anything to my hosts file. I tried safe boot as well and I still can't edit. I attempted some command line stuff to try to give me access to the file but it doesn't work. Also, read-only and hidden are checked in the properties but it doesn't let me edit those either; I get an access denied error. My lone O1 line from the Hijack log is something with localhost, nothing suspicious. Any idea on how to fix this?

2. Windows Defender doesn't open. It says something like "failed to initialize handle is invalid". It's listed in the Startup tab of msconfig and enabled.

3. Not sure if it's related but my sound has recently stopped working as well. I know it's not the speakers (built into monitors) as I tried brand new ones and they didn't work either. In the mixer, I can see the audio levels fluctuating when watching a youtube video for example, but I don't hear anything. I've toyed around with settings and everything in my audio control panel but still nothing.

Thanks in advance.

A:Access to hosts file disabled + Windows Defender not working + sound not working

If you use a browser other than Internet Explorer, you could try uninstalling it, deleting all files (so in your profile and program files), and then reinstall.

---

In regards to Windows Defender, it sounds as if your registry is damaged and/or core files for defender. That said, have a look at this: Error message when you try to start Windows Defender on a computer that you recently upgraded to Windows Vista: "Application failed to initialize"

---

Speakers....

A bit more information in regards to your system specs, setup, etc., would be helpful.

Do you have more than one output port on your computer? If so, try plugging your speakers into that and see if it works.

You might need to recheck your sound/audio settings in Windows, just to check it is outputting to the correct device.

If no success, try uninstalling/reinstalling (or just updating) your soundcard driver.

Hi. Sporting Windows XP Pro w/ SP3. I'm wondering if it's possible to change the default MIDI soundfont (if it is a soundfont), to a more high-end soundfont. I was tinkering around with some Creative software that gave me the idea that I could do that, though I haven't had much luck with my google searches. I don't seem to know the terminology to be specific enough to find what I'd like, so I'm hoping some human interaction can help me get there.

I was hoping the process might be something like:

Start -> Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices (or Audio HQ) -> Properties -> Browse -> Cool Soundfont pack.sf2 -> OK.

So when I swap and upgrade my soundfont pack for this generic "MIDI" sound, my various MIDI programs will play with the new and improved soundfont. Is this possible? I thought I had it, but it doesn't seem to have worked.

Audio HQ was the piece tied to Creative that I tinkered with and thought I upgraded, and I'm hoping to produce an improved effect on PTE.exe, a MIDI playing guitar tablature program. I don't know if it's program specific or if I can just adjust it through windows. I'm hoping the latter, as the former doesn't seem possible.

Is this the right forum for this? Please move me if it isn't. Thanks.

A:Can XP users change their default MIDI sound?

So I've gotten closer to my goal, and would like to share what I know, and perhaps clarify what I don't. So here goes.

This post is going to be part tutorial and part research. I have successfully upgraded my MIDI patch, though I do not know all the details encompassing the process, such as how it may vary for different OSs or sound cards. My impression is that it is soundcard-specific, so I should mention that this process is for Creative Audigy soundcards. And ultimately what I'd like to get out of this post, aside from helping others be able to update their MIDI sound font, is maybe a list of higher end soundfonts that can replace what I understand to be the stock MIDI sound. So let's begin the process (and do so by assuming you have the same sound card as me, for again, I don't know any other method):

First, select Start -> Control Panel -> Audio HQ


Then double click the Sound Font icon.


And in this panel is where we do our manipulations. Perhaps the first thing you want to check out is the Options tab. Under SoundFont Device, in my case, I have SB Audigy Synth A and B [9000], and they seem to have equivalent setups, and I can adjust each one individually.

Also here, you can control how much RAM you dedicate to processing the synth font. Selecting "too much" does not waste the memory. It will be used by other processes as necessary, but ensures you have enough to not slow down the production of sound.


Next, we go back to the first ... Read more

Hi guys, i tried sifting through the forums for something similar but i can not find anything like my problem.

The problem is when i play games after about 10 minutes sound in that program and only that program will stop. If i am in skype with someone or i have iTunes playing music in the background, none of that stops. It happens from low end games like fallout 2 to mid level games like league of legends. In leauge of legends if i go into sound options and mute the sound and then unmute it the sound comes back, thats the only game it happens on.

I'm using an on board sound card, everything is seems to be unto date. i was wondering if any one had had similar problems like this. I get the feeling its a piece of hardware dying somewhere, is this a symptom?

I was also using Line In port, but now you dont hear anything too (it doesnt detect it too) but another input is at max sound but nothing to hear.

and after the power out: my mouse and keyboard reseted to default settings too!

A:Analog Sound is not working(probably after multiple power outages)

With a power failure, when the PC is powered on, anything can fail, or partially fail. It sounds like the BIOS may have been corrupted too. Suggest you reset the BIOS and see if that helps. Best way is to power off the PC, then remove the CR2032 CMOS battery for at least 10 minutes. Reinstall the battery, observing the correct polarity, power on and see if this helps.

I downloaded at least five sound recorder programs on my new hp notebook computer (All Sound Recorder, Easy Recorder, Advanced MP3 WMA Recoder, etc.) ........

My experience with all of them is the same:

When I try to record from (say) a song that is playing through iTunes --- I hit record and everything looks OK. However, when I go to play it back on itunes or Windows Media player ---- there is no sound.

When attempting playback in iTunes - the little thing moves, to indicate that a recording has taken place and that the song is "playing" -- but there is no sound.

I was able to use a Sound Recorder progam on my old laptop and loved it, and used it frequently. I would greatly appreciate your help.

THANK YOU

Margo.
 

A:sound recorder programs - no sound during playback

One tip:
Click on Start / Run, type in sndvol32.exe . Once in sound volume manager window, choose Settings menu / Properties. Select Volume Settings for Recording. Check the sliders, they might be set on zero volume.
Please note: I attempted to translate the menu, button, etc. names, but the exact names may be different. If you don't find them, follow the logic of my post.

After closing a tab heavy google chrome window my pc had a crash during this crash the 1 second of the song that was playing repeated til the pc rebooted. After this tho I no longer have any sound at all from my computer. I'm running windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 2 installed. My speakers work I checked them with my mp3 player and the pc isn't on mute or turned down to zero. The strange part that confuses me tho is that the sound mixer window shows audio levels when i do play music or youtube but even with volume at full blast there is no audio as a work around for the time being i've set my pc to broadcast my pc's audio and then just use my lap top to tune into my station to listen to my music but this is getting old really quick when i check my sound card (realtek high definition audio?) in device manager it says 'this device is working properly' is it possible my soundcard broke/fried and it still showing it fine with audio levels moving?

A:Lost sound after a computer crash, shows sound working but can't hear a thing!

I've seen that before. Try uninstalling then re-installing the drivers. Worked for me.

I have hyperlinked to a .wav file in an MS Word 2007 document, and the sound file plays without opening a media player.

Problem is the sound file is 10mins long, and I have no way of controlling the .wav file once I have activated the hyperlink.

Pressing escape stops the sound, but I cannot pause or rewind.

The hyperlink seems to be opening the sound file as an 'embedded' object that I have no control over.

During a presentation, I need to be able to pause the sound or even rewind it.

Why doesn't MS Word allow me to open the hyperlinked sound file in a media player?

Can you help?

Berserk.

changed integrated sound card for Sound Blasster Live but it is not working right. It shows up in the device mnager, but when I go to Start>>Settings>>Control Panel>>Sounds & Audio Devices, it shows that there is NO AUDIO DEVICES.....why. I am running Windows XP Pro, on a P4-1.8, which has an Asus motherboard model P4S333.
 

A:changed integrated sound card for Sound Blasster Live but it is not working right

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

First. Go into your bios, and disable your onboard sound, and save and exit bios.

Once your computer has booted up, go into contol panel, and double click the sounds and audio devices icon.

Click on the audio tab, and set the sound playback device to your new soundcard.

Do the same for the sound recording device. Click on the voice tab and do the same. Click apply/ok.

Make sure you have the correct drivers installed for your new soundcard, and that your speakers are plugged into the new soundcard.

I have installed Win XP Pro SP2 (had Win 7 installed and couldn't run half my games). Now the games run fine but no sound! I know this is because I'm relying on the on-board sound on the (I have been told by my brother-in-law who used to own the pc!) Realtek motherboard as the soundcard broke 6 months ago (was a Creative Soundblaster 16 or AWE 32 Compatible (WDM)) and was removed.

When I installed Win XP yesterday everything runs fine but no sound. In the Device Manager I have problems with the:

Other Devices -Audio Device on HD Audio Bus (Code 1)PCI Simple Communications Controller (Code 28)Unknown device (Code 28)

Sound, Video & Game Controllers -Creative Soundblaster 16 or AWE 32 Compatible (WDM)(Code 10)

I don't understand why it's even picking up the sound card when it's not plugged in!

Hi to all seven forum,
I have a movie audio and its left channel sound is lower then the right side. so I wanted to Increase left channel sound for equal to right side channel. I used Audacity but its "Normalizer" option didn't really works.
see the image, there is clearly shown one channel sound is lower then other.

A:How to Normalize a channle sound from a stereo sound file.

The waveform for the bottom channel (whichever that is) shows it is distorting and too loud on the sound peaks. Lower that channel to match the other.

(I have a recording studio and work with audio daily).

Hello,
Recently, when I was using my Windows 10 desktop PC, I noticed that I had no sound for all programs and speakers/headphones I tried. Normally when I have no sound, it is exclusive to one program. I tried to fix the problem by reinstalling my Realtek audio drivers, but to no avail. Perhaps my sound card is broken or I am just doing something wrong?

A:Sound not working for all headphones... sound card broken?

To be sure, they're not muted, correct? Sometimes it's the most simple solution.
If they're not muted and the volume is turned up, then it's possible your sound card failed.

You could try booting into safe mode to see if some type of software is causing it.

Hi, as stated in the subject, I am unable to hear any sound from my speakers since upgrading to the windows 7 64 bit. I followed the other post that I found on this but I still cannot hear any sound.

I have a dell inspiron 531. The hardware ids from the device manager are

HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0888&SUBSYS_1028020E&REV_1000

HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0888&SUBSYS_1028020E

I have installed the realtek drivers and they as working but I still get nothing but a slight hiss from my speakers. I have tried them on my laptop and they work fine.

Does anybody know what might be causing this? I am half tempted to get a new sound card but I am reluctant as it says my existing one is working (it just seems to have forgotten to tell the speakers!)

If anybody knows a fix for this I really would be eternally grateful

Many thanks
Mike

A:Sound card drivers show as working but still no sound

Let's start by right clicking the speaker icon in your system tray and select playback devices from the options...right clik on the speakers and set as default. You can select to disable the independent headphone jacks if the speakers are plugged to the sound card. Then clik on properties and go to the levels tab at top. Set the slider to 100%. Go back to the playback devices window and select Configure button. Test the individual speakers by clicking on them one at a time.

Hi, first of I love your website here and everybody is so helpful (I posted here about a year back and I got help right away )

Anyways, I've been having this problem where my sound icon won't appear in the system tray. When this happens I can't adjust the sound using the buttons on my laptop either. I can usually fix this problem by doing a system restore to a week or two ago, but it seems like everytime I restart my computer I get this problem again (I usually just put my computer on standby). I wasn't having this problem for a while because I never turned off my computer (standby ) but I just got a random BSOD while watching a youtube video and when I restarted my computer the same problem occured (no sound icon in system tray and I can't adjust sound with buttons on laptop). I've tried many different things, from simple stuff like going into the control panel and checking "show sound icon in tray" to stuff like editing the registry (I tried googling how to fix this problem). Well I've had this problem for about half a year, and I'm officially sick of it . If any of you know how to fix this I would GREATLY appreciate it! Thanks in advance!
