Re: Sound and XP

You may find this is related to having a Realtek sound card. This is an acknowledged issue on Adobe site for Captivate 2 (with a download fix available). I am having the same issue with Captivate 1.01 for which there is no longer support (and no fix offered). Only option seems to be to upgrade to Captivate 3.

My sound isent working on reason 3

I can't remember if reason 3 settings are setup like version 4 and 5, but you should find the audio settings under the edit / Preferences menu. In the page drop down box press Audio. Now in the Audio Card driver, select DX Primary Sound Driver. This will use the same driver that windows does. If you see one that says ASIO use that as it is lowest latency. If that doesn't work you may need a better sound card. Reason 3 does not support a lot of generic sound cards. You might also try downloading the latest driver for your sound card, I could help you locate a driver if you give me the model of your PC and / the model of your sound card.

I have a captivate project that won't save

The problem might be related to your computer's cache memorry that doesn't allow you to save to big projects since for example a dual core processor might have up to 4 mb of cache.

Reasons won't record midi data

Hi Danadepatter,

You have to check were the problems is, with exclude way.

1. you first find out if your "master keyboard" really works: Try to run another program where you can run the the keyboard(you can use a trial and the uninstall it after)

2. if that works then it is another place not the keyboard, then it can bee the program / sound card / configuration . you can find the reason manual here :
Check if the configuration to the midi keyboard is ok.
FOR THE SOUND CARD: be sure that you do not have anything else that can interrupt the sound card. Shut down other recorders and other software that use the sound card and bee sure that you use the same sound card configuration (normally it is realtec the default)

If nothing happens please go to the support here for Reason software :

Hope that helps
Have a nice weekend

First of all, you should not even mention that is a cracked version, I will fake I did not hear that. I am sure you installed the pirate version only to test it on your computer, and you will buy the original if this works.

Regarding the games here are the specification:

Minimum System Requirements:
You must have these minimum system specifications for the game to function correctly. We do not provide support for configurations that do not meet the minimum requirements.
  • Operating System: Microsoft Windows® 2000/XP (Windows 95/98/ME/NT Not Supported)
  • CPU: Pentium 4 1.5Ghz or Athlon XP Equivalent
  • RAM: 512MB
  • Graphics: 100% DirectX 9.0c compatible video card which supports Hardware TnL and Pixel Shader 2.0 (GeForce FX / Radeon 9500 or higher)
  • Sound: 100% DirectX 9.0c Compatible Sound Card
  • DVD-Rom: Quad-speed (4x) Dvd-Rom Drive
  • Hard Drive: 5.0GB free disk space
  • Input Devices: 100% Windows 2000/XP compatible Mouse and Keyboard (Gamepads and controller are not supported)
Recommended System requirements:
  • CPU: Pentium 4 2.4Ghz or Athlon XP/64-bit equivalent
  • RAM: 1024MB
  • Graphics: ATI X800 series, Nvidia GeForce 6800 series or higher video card
  • Sound: 100% DirectX 9.0c Compatible Sound Card, Sound Blaster X-Fi series
  • DVD-Rom: Eight-speed (8x) DVD-Rom drive or faster
  • Hard Drive: 5.0GB free disk space
This game requires a CPU of at least 2.4 Ghz and a powerful video card, such as
ATI X800 series, Nvidia GeForce 6800 series or higher.

You also need
DirectX 9.0c installed, that may be the reason why it does not start.
Try downloading
DirectX 9.0c here, if it does not work, then, providing that CPU is good enough, you will need to upgrade video adapter or get a new computer.

Download from here and install:
Download details: DirectX End-User Runtime
Download details: DirectX 9.0c Redistributable for Software Developers

Sometimes you need an overpowered computer to play latest games, standard computers are usually not powerful enough for new games, that is the reason why they invented Xbox and PS.

Audio out of sync

Captivate creates a single filestream of each audio clip you add your project. As you make changes to the audio, such as replace the audio on a given slide with a different audio clip, Captivate sometimes ignores your new clip and does not embed or include it in the main audio stream. I experienced many headaches with this issue until I stumbled on a fix that works for pretty much all Captivate audio problems.

Open your original Captivate file that you are experiencing audio problems with. Then in a separate Captivate session, create a new BLANK project with the same screen size settings as your original Captivate file. One by one copy the files from your original into the new blank project. Afterwards you may have to adjust some of your objects on your timeline for a slide or two. Uusually I don't have to do this step unless I have several clickbox items. Once you have copied and adjusted all your slides, save the file and publish. This resolves your audio problems.

Why does this work? I suspect that it creates an entirely new main audio filestream as you copy and past the individual slides for the new Captivate file. I stimbled across this after trying to fix my audio problems by copying all the slides from my original and pasting into a new blank project in one operation. That did not work, then I thought of trying to eliminate the old main audio filestream by this method. Afterwards I repeated this action on all my Captivate projects with audio problems and it fixed all of them.

Captivate 1 & 2 are not compatible. You would have to upgrade to Captivate 2 to be able to see the file.
