No sound from WAV file coming from audacity


I exported the soundfile from my shotcut project and edited it in audacity, then I exported it from audacity (into a monofile, no other option for WAV) and brought it back into shotcut. But there is no sound. I can see the meter but I can’t hear anything. Same thing with mp3, and with AIFF. The tracks are not muted. No mute filter. I also tried some other wav file which came from some former shotcut project, same problem. I tried another mp3 file from some other place and it worked.

If I double click the file in the playlist there is no sound and if I drag it into an auditrack in the timeline there is no sound.

Any ideas?

Ensure you don’t see the speaker icon muted.

If you see this, just click twice on the icon.

If you see this, just click once on the icon.

Windows 10: Ensure you haven’t muted Shotcut

To ensure you haven’t applied a filter in the wrong spot on your current project, Save your current project, then start a new project with just that sound file.


Try to make sure your speakersimages (1)or earphonesdownload are alright and if they are ok try to see system audioimage_2021-01-25_124146 is not muted
