I'm having an issue with creating a 4 track multichannel sequence, where the audio on track 3 and 4 donsen't produce any sound from my speakers. The levels are animating, which implies that the sound is being registered, but I can't hear anything. Am I missing a simple setting somewhere? Or have I stumbled into a really complex issue?
I followed this guide to create my sequences, and I've followed it to the letter.
Everything appears to be working the way he descibed it in the video, I have 4 channels in the audio meters, and like I said, the bars on A3 and A4 are animating up and down as normal, impluying sound is there, but I can't hear anything.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!
Could we have a screenshot of your track mixer.
That's the clip mixer, could we have the track mixer. Could you use the image button on the forum so we don't have to download files.
Ah, appolgies! Here it is (I think)
You have a 4 channel multitrack sequence so you need 4 outputs from your computer and four speakers, how is your audio hardware set up?
Ah, ok. I just have a left and right speaker, and a sub, connected to the line out. Is there a way to map the output so that I can hear through the two I have?

What you need is a stereo sequence rather than the 4 channel multitrack you have now. Most of the sequence settings can be changed on existing sequences except the master audio format. You have a choice, either make a blank stereo sequence and copy and paste your material from your original timeline, or just use your existing sequence and route all your audio to outputs 1 and 2. Change the red circled to 1 and 2
AH!! Ok, I get it now. Thanks Richard, appreciate your help. That seems to have done the trick.
I have two editing laptops, one on which I can hear all channels in a multitrack sequence (an Acer Aspire v17 nitro https://www.acer.com/ac/en/CA/content/series/aspirevnitro) and one that can't (a Dell XPS 15 9500 https://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-laptops/xps-15-laptop/spd/xps-15-9500-laptop/xn9500ecxps). Can someone explain why? Is it some software built into the Acer? Dolby? Is there some software I can download to trick my computer into playing all the ouputs through my headphones?
