How do I get audio input?

Up to Table of Contents

This FAQ applies to: Any version.

I can playback audio just fine, but there seems to be no sound coming INTO Pd.

Perhaps you did not enable sound input.

On OS X, make sure the check-boxes next to your selected soundcard have been checked in "Audio Settings".

Also, some cards with an uneven number of in and out channels can have problems in Pd. Try setting the number of channels the same for the input and output.

On all platforms, check the audio control panel which comes with your Operating System and make sure the proper input is enabled there, and that its recording volume is turned up.
