FLDigi Audio File Playback HELP PLEASE!!

  • Updated 3 years ago

I am doing a digital modes presentation tomorrow and just noticed that the audio is not coming through the speakers when playing back an archived .WAV file.  The traces appear in the program fine but no audio plays through the speakers.  I believe this worked fine in the past but the setup is confusing with all of the DAX audio drivers.  I am running FLDigi 3.23.00, SSDR 1.6.17.156 and Win7.  Would someone please try running a sound file and verify their settings in the Sound configuration screens in Windows.

Thanks greatly, Ron

Ron, have you tried audacity as a playback program?

http://www.audacityteam.org/

Audioswitcher shows your default soudcards and all settings:

This works all the time for me.

Another big asset is K9DUR's Voice Keyer:

I leave my soundcard setting normally at pc speaker/mike as default devices,
but for some programs you have to change that (for example for EasyPAL)

Audacity works fine, in fact that was how I recorded the sounds.  The .WAV files also play back fine using the Windows Media Player when double clicked.  I was hoping to re-run the files through FLDigi, however, and hear/see the traces when explaining the different digital modes.  I thought that I remembered being able to hear the files when they were played.

Ron, having fldigi before me now, I can record and playback audio with fldigi
and audacity. The tones are audible, no problems there.
The best recorder I know of, is CWSkimmer with it's ability to record
and playback I/Q streams.

A few questions please.  Just confirming that the audio is coming out of FLDigi with the radio turned off.

1.  What format were the files stored, .WAV?
2.  What were the Capture and Playback devices in the FLDigi Configuration screen.
3.  What are the default Playback and Recording Devices in the Win7 Control Panel.

Thanks, Ron

Ron, to answer your questions:

ad 1. .wav

I run the newest alpha of fldigi (3.23.08.15) and the newest beta of audacity here and in fldigi the file->audio->dropdown window.
