Troubleshooting for No Sound When Using FxSound

Troubleshooting for No Sound When Using FxSound

If you don't have sound when running FxSound, you might need to change your playback device. FxSound will automatically take control of your playback device in Windows with our virtual audio driver FxSound Audio Enhancer. To switch your playback devices, you'll need to change them within the FxSound app.

Changing Playback Devices with Keyboard Shortcuts

1) Ctrl + Shift + D or Ctrl + Shift + A

That's it! I told you it was easy. If you want to switch back. And if you want to continue cycling through playback devices, press Ctrl + Shift + (A or D) until you get to the playback device you're looking for.

Changing Playback Devices in the App

If you don't want to use keyboard shortcuts, try the following.

1) Open FxSound

2) Click on the playback devices drop down

3) Click on your desired Playback Device

Changing Playback Devices in the System Tray

1) Open the System Tray

2) Right click the FxSound icon

3) Hover over Playback Device Select

4) Select your device

If changing your playback device doesn't fix the sound issues in FxSound, you can try turning off exclusive mode on your audio devices.
