Why can’t i hear anything on FL Studio Mobile?

Check That Audio Output is Enabled

One of the most common reasons for no audio in FL Studio Mobile is that the audio output has been disabled or is not properly connected. Here are some steps to check:

– Confirm any connected headphones, speakers, or other audio devices are plugged in fully and powered on. Make sure the volume on these devices is turned up as well.

– In FL Studio Mobile, check that the master track audio is enabled by tapping the power button at the top of the mixer channel. If it’s disabled, tap to enable it.

– Also check that none of the mixer tracks have been muted or have their volumes turned down. Tap each track’s volume slider and make sure it’s set above zero.

If headphones or speakers are connected and powered on, and mixer track levels are enabled, then audio should be able to play through FL Studio Mobile. If you still don’t hear audio, further troubleshooting may be required.

Update FL Studio Mobile

One of the first troubleshooting steps to try is updating FL Studio Mobile to the latest version available. Open the App Store on your mobile device and search for FL Studio Mobile. Tap on the app and check if there is an Update button available. If so, tap to update FL Studio Mobile to the latest version.

App developers frequently release updates to fix bugs and improve performance. It’s possible an issue with no audio output was addressed in a more recent version. Updating to the latest version may resolve audio problems you’ve been experiencing.

According to the Image-Line forum, updating the app version can help with no USB audio detection issues on Android devices (1). Trying the latest version is one of the simplest troubleshooting steps to attempt.

After updating, reopen FL Studio Mobile and check if you can now hear audio output as expected. If the issue persists, you may need to try additional troubleshooting steps.

Restart the App

One of the simplest troubleshooting steps for audio issues in FL Studio Mobile is to completely close out of the app and reopen it. This clears out any temporary glitches or bugs and gives the app a fresh start.

To restart FL Studio Mobile on Android, swipe the app away from the recent apps list or go to Settings > Apps > FL Studio Mobile and select “Force Stop.” On iOS, double click the home button and swipe up on the FL Studio Mobile app preview to fully close it.

After fully closing the app, reopen it and see if audio issues are resolved. Restarting the app essentially performs a soft reset which can clear up audio problems like no sound during playback or frozen audio.

As noted in a Image-Line forum thread, rebooting the device and then reopening FL Studio Mobile is recommended as a first troubleshooting step for no audio issues.

Check Audio Settings

One of the first things to check is the audio settings in FL Studio Mobile. Go to the settings menu and confirm the audio output mode is set appropriately. The app supports output via Built-in Speaker, Headphones, Bluetooth A2DP, AirPlay, and External Audio Device. Make sure the desired output mode is selected based on how you want to listen to your project’s audio playback. For example, if you are trying to listen through headphones, ensure the Headphones option is enabled in audio settings.

You can also check the sample rate and buffer size in the audio settings. Try adjusting these values if you are getting cracking or glitching sounds. Setting a higher sample rate like 44100 Hz and a larger buffer size like 256 samples may improve audio playback performance.

Additionally, verify that the master track’s mixer channel is not muted and volume faders are up. It’s possible the app is generating audio but it is muted or turned down before reaching your speakers or headphones.

See the Image-Line website for more details on configuring audio settings in FL Studio Mobile.

Troubleshoot Operating System Issues

If the issue seems isolated to FL Studio Mobile, try troubleshooting at the operating system level.

First, verify your device’s sound settings are configured correctly. On iOS, go to Settings > Sounds and make sure volume sliders are turned up and mute switches are off. Try toggling these settings off and on to reset them. On Android, go to Settings > Sound and check volume levels. Reboot your device to refresh any stuck settings.

Next, test audio playback with other apps like YouTube or Spotify. If those work but FL Studio Mobile does not, the issue lies with the app and not your operating system. You may need to reinstall FL Studio Mobile or contact their support for troubleshooting. If no apps have audio, your device’s speakers or audio system may be damaged and require repair.

Free Up Storage Space

One common reason for audio issues in FL Studio Mobile is low storage space on your device. FL Studio Mobile relies on available storage to function properly, and audio problems can occur if storage space runs too low. Offloading unused apps and files can free up storage capacity and potentially resolve audio problems in FL Studio.

According to user reports on forums like Reddit, storage limitations on mobile devices are a frequent culprit behind no sound issues in FL Studio Mobile. With limited storage, the app may not have enough free space to properly process and output audio (source).

Freeing up storage by deleting unused apps, files, photos and videos can clear the way for FL Studio Mobile to access the space it needs. It’s generally recommended to keep at least 10% or more of your total storage free. Low storage space can directly impact system performance, leading to problems like no audio output in FL Studio Mobile and other apps.

Factory Reset Device

Factory resetting your device can often resolve audio issues caused by software conflicts or corrupted system files. Before resetting, be sure to backup any important data, as a factory reset will erase everything on your device.

To factory reset an Android device, go to Settings > System > Reset options > Erase all data (factory reset). On an iPhone, go to Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings. For Windows, go to Start > Settings > Update & Security > Recovery > Reset this PC. Select “Remove Everything” to erase all files and fully reset the system.

After the reset completes, test audio again. If issues persist, there is likely a deeper hardware or driver problem. You may need to contact the device manufacturer for support. But in many cases, a factory reset clears out the software gremlins causing sound problems.

Just remember – back up first, and be prepared to reinstall apps and customize settings after resetting.

Update Device Software

One potential solution is to ensure your iPhone software is fully updated. Outdated operating systems can sometimes cause compatibility issues with apps like FL Studio Mobile. To update, go to Settings > General > Software Update and install the latest iOS version. Apple regularly releases software updates to fix bugs and improve device performance. According to Apple Support, “keeping your iPhone up to date with the latest version of iOS gives you the latest features, improved security, and more efficient performance.”

Updating to the latest iOS version has resolved no sound issues for some users after an iOS update, as noted in this Apple Discussions thread. So if you are experiencing no audio after updating iOS, try updating your iOS again to the newest available version.
