    Second, all you need to do is a quick google search akin to "no audio playback in resolve" and you will find loads of people with the same problem, seemingly out of nowhere. (The same can be said for the dual monitor bug) There are about 4-5 different fixes designed to troubleshoot the problem, which don't always work. If i seem distressed, it's because I rely on this editor and I have a bunch of projects that are due relatively soon. I enjoy coloring on Davinci, I enjoy editing here. But it is not, in my experience, reliable. If this is somehow a USER error I'd be the happiest person to report back and say so.



    Hey, thank you for your suggestion. I have gone the use system settings route for the speaker and even tried manually selecting them. Still no audio. However, I'm not sure what you mean by selecting "main". I have never used fusion and I don't see a "Main" setting on fusion, your attachments also are not showing up.

    Maybe your OS had an automatic update and changed something?

    So in your experience Resolve is unreliable, yet you rely on it, on a beta version of it, for a bunch of projects, due soon.

    If you want to have the actual problem addressed, starting with 'Resolve is rubbish' may not give you only the results you want.

    My suggestion would have been to change khz settings on the system but you already tried that.

    So you really say, that over night, while you computer is sleeping, Resolve went into your system and changed something, so you don't have audio at the next time you start it up? And that it only happens to a few people, cause they somehow got a "special version" of Resolve, while the rest of us got the audio working just fine?

    If it is just a Resolve problem, shouldn't we all have it?

    And since we all see the attachments, but you don't, maybe Resolve went into your system over nicht again, and changed an other setting - yeah, Resolve must be rubbish then.

    Hey, Sorry for the mix-up - I meant FAIRLIGHT tab, not FUSION. I'm not sure why you are not seeing the screenshot. Anyway, here is the screenshot showing the "MAIN" selection.

    The problem is siting definitely in front of the monitor here.

    1. Check your Preference and make sure you are using either the System Setting for speakers or select the correct speaker you want to use.

    2. If #1 still does not do it, then go to the FUSION tab and select MAIN. Hope this helps and calms you down. Cheers.

    If that don't do it, call BMD Support. Resolve works as advertised. I personally will tell you that if there is something that is in their documentation and it doesn't work, it's likely I have missed it, hence user error and it happens to everyone specially those new to the software. Now if it crashes, then that is a software issue.

    I was quoting thread title, thought the message was clear.

A simple google search shows that many others exhibit this problem out of nowhere as well as the dual monitor bug.

    Edit: Installed Davinci 15. Same issue. Starting to freak out as I have a bunch of project that are due. I have tried fixing it using the Video Audio I/O panel, manually setting my speakers and using system settings. This literally happened out of nowhere - for some reason Davinci is not playing the sound through my laptop speakers. It is not a timeline issue as it doesn't play in the medial pool as wel. (meters still indicating that there is sound). However upon export sound is rendered properly. People are expected to pay $300 for this?

    I had a similar issue after an upgrade. I looked everywhere, checked my Steinberg firmware. On the third time I looked in "Preferences" (top left of the interface), I was able to fix it. Here is a (lousy) picture of the "Audio" dialog box with my settings. It took me a while to get the "Steinberg" to appear in the "Speakers" box. It was grayed out first, I think it became active after I checked none on the two radio buttons above it.

    I hope this helps you out!

    A beta software isn't intended for professional use, of course there are bugs.

    Even when you are on a stable version, I wouldn't ever upgrade mid project. All software should remain untouched until you have delivered, and upgrades should happen when you have downtime and enough time to test before starting another project.

We have folks who moved from Premier Pro and Avid Media Composer recently and they are just doing fine with Resolve 15.3. Although we will move to 16, we don't usually change version until it is generally release and at a .2 or .3 revision. If you are running 16 Beta, then don't expect it to work like GA. You're testing it at that point.

    I have uninstalled resolve, downloaded the latest realtek audio drivers, and re-installed. Levels indicate that audio is playing but there is no sound.
