No USB sound in my headphones

I can't hear USB sound in my headphones. I can hear direct sound only. How can this be adjusted?

I tried changing Windows 7 settings (Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound) and adjusting the M-Track controls without luck.

  • Hello John,

    Thanks for posting.

    There is a MONITOR knob on the M-Track. All the way to the left is DIRECT, and to the right is USB. That should do it!

  • When I turn the "Phones" knob all the way to the right and the "Direct/USB" knob all the way to the right I can hear a barely audible noise but I can't hear any sound.

    I also tried turning "Monitor" knob to the left and to the right but I don't have monitors connected to the device so I think it does nothing.

    When Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound is set to "Speakers M-Track" I can't hear my normal laptop speakers anymore and an indicator shows that signal is actually sent to the M-Track device but I can't hear the sound in the headphones. When I switch that setting to my normal laptop speakers then sound instantly returns.

  • Thanks. Important details!

    The MONITOR knob adjusts the mix of the DIRECT signal (right from the inputs of the M-Track) and the USB signal (from the computer). For most this will stay all the way to the right, on USB, all the time.

    You have the headphones connected to the M-Track directly, correct? Any headphones or speakers need to be connected to the M-Track. Essentially, the M-Track is now you computer's sound card.

  • I took pictures:





    When I switch to my laptop speakers (3rd option on the second image) then I hear the sound in my laptop speakers. When I switch that to M-Track I hear nothing but Windows 7 indicates that signal is sent.

    I don't have monitors that I could plug in the back of the M-Track device. I only have headphones.
    • Okay, that's okay without speakers, just headphones. Thanks much for the pics.

      One thing I notice in the bottom pic is the volume on the Mixer window. This should be turned all the way up, along with any other volume controls in that mixer menu.

      Basically, you want Windows sending a full volume at all times out to the M-Track, and the only volume adjustment is via the headphone volume knob on the M-Track.

      I'm not sure if there are other places where Windows adjusts the volume output; I do think it's just that Mixer slider section.
    • I changed that to 100% and it didn't work but when I disconnected it from the USB port and connected it again it works!!! And now the two vertical blue diodes are highlighted as well. On my photo they weren't for some reason. They stop being lit after some time but now they turn on as soon as I start playing any sound.

      Thank you very much for your assistance!
