So i just got to level 22 and got the practice piano but pressing keys wont play any sound, i have instrument sounds set to 100 and i cant seem to hear anyone else play anything. Ost templates dont play any sound as well when playing it.

I have already tried doing a full reinstall, Download repair, and nothing seems to work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    To solve the problem you have to re-log

    *edit* have you used auto play? I couldn't hear music of myself or others after I used an auto play ticket.

    No i haven't used auto play yet, and if i remember correctly when i first saw someone use an instrument i couldnt hear them, i thought they weren't playing, but now i understand why i could hear him.

    I'll try re-loggin, and come back with results.

    Hello, I'm back and with an update. I have spoken to tech support about this problem, and they have seen this thread. I am currently doing some things they want me to do, and sending a result. Hopefully this could get fixed soon.

    For now keep on Mapleing. :)

    I've been having the same problem. Instruments have worked back in CBT1 but they are apparently silent for me in CBT2...

    Me too. I submitted a ticket in customer support, but I haven't heard from them yet. I'm having this problem where I can hear other people play music, but I can't hear my own. I've tried this with different scores just to see if it's a problem on my part, but I can't hear any of them at all even when I try previewing them.

    EDIT: I tried playing something with one of the scores that was available to buy (with the Maplestory OST) and I could hear it, which is even more confusing since I still can't hear mine. Like OP, I also can't hear anything whenever I try pressing on the keys.

    EDIT #2: I bought a guitar and it worked! It might only be the electric piano that's having problems.

    I've been having this issue as well. Been researching to figure out how to fix it. Tried to repair download. Didn't work.

    I'm also having this issue on all of my characters with every instrument i've tried. I could hear myself and other people playing at the start of head start, but after i started getting into it last week it's been no sound from any instrument.

    It's not only instruments for me but also the BGM stops playing after it has played tru once ! then everything BGM related just stops working including instruments. Even tho when I just log in there is no problem. :/

    Was gonna make a thread about this problem, but it seems that support has already seen this. I hope this gets fixed because I really want to hear other people's and my instruments.

    Same problem here and i've really tried everything i can think of to resolve this. Reinstalling game and sound drivers. Listened on different devices. I've even tried to install midi-software, but something went fishy with that, so i gave up. But that shouldn't be necessary tho. Hope there's a fix soon. Unfortunately this seems to be an issue that's been there for a long time for just a few people, without any changes.
