Question about IBIS Software Play It By Ear (ALFPBE1)

Play It By Ear problems

I have used PLAY IT BY EAR (Ibis Software) for many years & it's a winner. I see that it is no longer available. I am trying to install it on a Win 98 computer for my students to use, it it will not install. What can I do? I have only Version 1.1. I'm sure there must be a later version before it was discontinued.

My tascam us144mk2 works great only problem is my headphones only play in left ear i have a pair with 1/8" plug so i bought a 1/4" adapter and only have sound in one ear i've tried multiple...

Double check that the adapter you bought is designed for stereo. The easiest way to check this is count the number of metal bands you can see on the adapter, stereo headphones will have 3 metal bands separated by 2 plastic bands, whereas mono will have 2 metal bands separated by a plastic band.
If you accidentally bought a mono adapter, this will cause sound to only play in one ear.

Take it apart. Just google how to do it, i found a post with pictures and took mine apart without much trouble (just had to buy a $5 small screwdriver kit at radioshack). the switch for the lock is actually a metal piece that is moved by that **** piece of plastic. You can move the switch easily to where you want it and put the plastic piece in the correct position. -Stoney
