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:
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:
Boot Up 8HDPress GLOBAL
Select MIDI

Now hold PLAY & RECORD while POWERING ONThis may take a few seconds
Let 8HD fully boot upPress GLOBAL
Select MIDI
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.

I have a new tablet pc with windows 7. When I insert my headphone the sound go both by headphone both by pc speaker...How can I disable from speaker? It is not so automatcally! Thanks

Go to control panel in win 7.Then find sound.

Open sound icon,click on speakers then configure.There should be a option to choose headphones.

If this does not work you may need to choose the properties tab then levels, then at the top your sound device should be listed. Click on the small speaker icon and mute the speakers.

Hope this was helpfull

Low sound in headphone

I would say it is because the unit does not have a built in amplifier. The speakers are powered PC speakers of studio monitors I am guessing. Try plugging the headphones into the headphone jack of the speakers if they have a headphone jack or try a set of powered headphones out of the Edirol and see if it helps.

That should remedy the problem.

No sound from 5.1 surround system

If you're connecting a "5.1 surround system" to a single jack that you plug your headphones into, it's not going to work. Headphone jack is Stereo, 2 speakers. You need at least 3 input jacks for 5.1, plus one for the subwoofer. If you don't have these, you'll have to buy an add-on card.
