    New synth. No sound out, Help please.
    'Morning everyone,Just registered & I have a question.
    I just bought an M- Audio Venom synth. I have everything set up but I can't get sound out. In the system preferences I can see the device and I can see that the sound is getting in when I'm in the input menu and I play the synth.( Blue sound level indicators working), I can also use the device as an MIDI controller in garageband. But no mater what I do in System prefs- sound- output menu I get no sound.
    The question might be CAN I hear the synth.through the computer but assuming I can, how do I get this to work? The thing does work with headphones andI have been playing with it that way, but I would like to hear this trough my computer speakers. No other issues with sound,I just can'y get this to work.Thanks in advance.
    iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8) Latest drivers but this is supposed to work without them. I've tried both ways,same result.

    I have solved this myself !! If anyone is interested I ran a cord from the synth outputs to the 1/8 in line in on the I MAC. Still no sound. Then I found LineIn on the web (it's free). I downloaded it and the synth is playing through the speakers now. Fast simple and free. Very pleased with myself and my new toy. Hope this helps someone.

    You want LineIn.

    I am having the same issue but I am using an audio interface. I have had 2 interfaces and the first had an issue with Mavericks, the 2nd I think & hope was merely defective. I am looking to see if anyone knows how to repair Audio Midi setup. I may start a separate thread.
