How do I link to my Bluetooth speakers

moags wrote on 11/21/2017, 4:29 PM

Hi I've recently aquired Sound Forge version 12 and Windows 10 which has Bluetooth.  I'm now playing music from PC through my Bluetooth speakers attached to my sound system but when I try to play tracks loaded to Sound Forge for editing etc - nothing! Is there a setting on Sound Forge that needs to be 'switched on'? I've looked but can't see anything but then I'm a bit of a tech dinosaur! Can anyone please help with this.  Many thanks

I would look at the 'Audio Device Type' settings in "Options> Preferences> Audio" and maybe try a different device routing.. don't know if there's a specific setting for Bluetooth .. my experience that that is little to none.

Hi

Check to see if the Bluetooth speakers are set as the Default playback device in Windows:-

  1. Right click the speaker icon bottom right of the desktop and select Playback devices
     
  2. The Bluetooth speaker should appear in the list of available devices and if it is default it should have a green tick mark against as shown for my speakers in the image below


     
  3. If they are not the default select the Bluetooth speakers and click the Set default button.
     
  4. They should be automatically picked up by SF

Hi John, did as you suggested and made sure the Bluetooth speakers were the default ones - still nothing coming through from Sound Forge!  I'll get in touch with their support team as I've another problem.  I can open music files from my PC but it's not recognising my D drive player - so frustrating esp as my prev Sound Forge studio worked great.  Thanks for your help anyway. Cheers

Ps to last message that should've read my E drive cd player.  Cheers  Moags

Is the E drive recognised by Windows and available to play discs from with SF closed?

Have you tried restarting the computer - Windows button, Power, Restart ?

Yes I use the E drive loads outwith SF so Windows def recognises it, it only seems to be SF that doesn't!  Yeah, I've actually just managed to get SF to link to the Bluetooth speakers by clicking onto WMD (not a clue what that means but it's working!).  Thanks for your interest John

I hope you mean WDM which is the Windows Driver Model - a Microsoft 'method' of streaming audio built into Windows - and not Weapons of Mass Destruction. 💥
