Sound Prefs Test - No Beep?
« on: November 25, 2014, 02:06:01 AM »
I'm sure I'm overlooking something obvious.  Amiga 3000, OS 3.1.  I have speakers hooked up and have used SAY so I know the sound works.  But in the sound Prefs, when set to BEEP, the TEST button makes no sound.  Also when I set it to an 8vsx sample, no sound.

Am I missing something?

There are five "units", each with their own settings.
Check "Music Unit, "Unit 0",... to "Unit 3".

Hopefully that will sort it for you.

Sorry it's been a long time since I've dove into the Amiga so deep... can you clarify what you mean by unit?  Is that a tooltype of the icon?

Ah I'm an idiot.  My Y cable is bad... the white lead works on both outputs of the A3K but the red works on neither.

What's even stranger is that when it's white to white and red to red, SAY works fine but sound prefs test does not.  If I unplug the red cable it works.  And if I put white to red and red to white, it works?!

The Amiga has four distinct sound channels. The first and the fourth are mixed to the left output and the second and third are mixed to the right.

Now if you only connect the left output to a loud speaker (because the right cable is damaged) and program 1 outputs on channel 1 (left) and program 2 on channel 2 (right), you will only hear program 1.
