Question about Alesis Fusion 8HD Sound Card

2 Answers

No sound ...

I just turn on my fusion but i get no sound from the speakers or the headphones, just a small buzz form the speakers (something like a/c sound : zzzzzzzzzzz) and i can hardly hear a tiny sound coming from the notes i play .
My monitors are ok .What can i do ? Is it possible to reboot it or something else like a restart ?
Thanks!

Go into global settings, choose the MIDI settings and make sure the very first box is checked. I lost my sound and had a similar problem and just did some troubleshooting and once I clicked that box, my sound returned. Hope this helps.

I was having an issue with my newly purchased second-hand Fusion 8HD, the "best answer" here went along way in helping me solve my headphone sound out issue.
I'll describe the issue & then the solution:
THE ISSUE:
When I switched on the 8HD there was a very low volume level from the left analog output (headphone & main), accompanied by a crackling sound. The right outputs always worked perfectly.
After 30 minutes of "warming up" the 8HD by letting a demo tune run at half volume, the sound level of the left output would begin to match the right output level & the crackling would die down significantly.
This situation only allowed for tolerable use of the 8HD & I was convinced I was gonna have to replace the sound card, however the fix is so simple!
Heres what worked for me:
THE SOLUTION:
Boot Up 8HDPress GLOBAL
Select MIDI
UNCHECK the LOCAL CONTROL box
Press PROGRAM
Now POWER OFF

Now hold PLAY & RECORD while POWERING ONThis may take a few seconds
Let 8HD fully boot upPress GLOBAL
Select MIDI
Now CHECK the LOCAL CONTROL box
Press PROGRAM
Now POWER OFF - again!

Again hold PLAY & RECORD while POWERING ONAgain this may take a few seconds but its so worth it!
I hope this works for you too.

Does it buzz through cans? (headphones). Try listening on headphones (turn off any amps and speakers) on cue to each channel you use and to the master output. is it stil there? if so it's an all round earthing fault. If it's all good through the cans (sorry...I mean headphones), try it with the amp/s on again. If the buzz is back it souds like the screen on the main audio output connecters has come off inside.
It's a quick fix, but if you have never used a solder iron, take to someone who has.

My speakers are currently turned on, at normal volume. Whether I try to play music or not, a buzzing noise comes from the speakers.


your power supply is bad for the speakers giving them to much power or there bad speakers plug some headphones up and see if it makes the buzzing if it does then you have a power problem with your computer or sound card

When I turn my speakers on there's a buzzing sound all the time, and when I put my headphones in, it's even louder, (in the headphones of course). What can I do???


Check your sound card hasnt came loose, make sure there is no router or hub of any type near your pc. nothing much after this check wiring for shorts. if you listen to the music to load all the time it can damage the amp. try plugging headphones into where the speakers normally go on your pc , see if the hummms there if not then its just your amp on its way out.

My QC2 right headphone starts to buzz, like a vibrating sound


It is a blown woofer in the headphones that is causing the vibrating. Because when a woofer is blown is will develop a small tear, this tear will get bigger over time and cause that "vibrating" sound that you hear. Lucky for you joenfrancis your headphones are still under warranty so they will replace the headphones for free. Hope this helped!

No sound


turn your speakers up and moisten your finger. touch the jack plug that inserts into the pc, if you hear the speakers buzz/crackle then they are ok. If not I would try a new lead if possible, else speakers are u/s as if headphones work then speakers should as well as use the same output from the pc, just amplify it unlike headphones. You could also check in the cpanel to see if your speakers are set to speakers and not headphones but to be honest I cant see this stopping the speakers altogether.
