I’m trying to get started on Sonic Pi and I’m going through the tutorial. However, starting with the very first step in the tutorial, I can’t get Sonic Pi to make any sound whatsoever. I’m on Windows 10, using Sonic Pi v3.3.1. The code I’m trying to run is as follows:
# Welcome to Sonic Pi live_loop :flibble do sample :bd_haus, rate: 1 sleep 0.5 end
According to the tutorial this is supposed to produce “a nice fast bass drum beating away”. Instead it’s completely silent. I’ve tried using headphones as well as my laptop speakers, but neither one works. I can hear sound through other sources, like watching YouTube videos, just not through Sonic Pi itself. I saw a Sonic Pi for dummies page that said “If you don’t hear any sound when you use Sonic Pi, you probably need to select a different item in the Raspberry Pi Audio Output box.” but it didn’t say what a “Raspberry Pi Audio Output box” is or how I can select items for it. Does anybody know how to get this sound program to actually make sound?
