I would like to now if there is a way to hear added soundtracks in the viewport of Blender, while the animations are playing. Im using Blender 2.92 . I added sound in de video sequence editor, but it only played the sound if the animation is rendered. The Speaker are useless, they do nothing, no matter what settings i cange... Can someone help me with that please!
You should not have to render.
- Switch to the Video Sequence Editor
- Use the add menu to add the audio, as you did:
Return to the 3D Viewport
Use the timeline window to play the animation
If you are not hearing audio, make sure the audio isn't muted (hidden):
- In the Visual Sequence Editor, hover over the audio type and type ALT-h to unmute.
You can tell that audio is muted, the track will be gray, rather than cyan.
I had similar issue with no audio in VSE but audio in rendered video. I tried all the suggestions and found a different solution.
In my particular situation- I had no success with blender system audio settings, disabling mute, and I was about to download pavucontrol until i realized im on windows 10 not linux.
Then I looked into a similar direction within Windows Sound settings.
Settings>System>Sound>Advanced Sound Options
There are active options on the output volume for each application. For some reason its set to 0 volume at default for blender.
Hope this helps. It was frustrating having audio in rendered but not while editing.
