    My AxeIII is conected to the PC (WIN10) via USB, I can record, AE works with out a prob' but i cant play music or play any sound (MP3, YouTube etc..) from the PC via the Axe as sound interface.
    In the PC sound config i select the Axe as speakers but no soun.
    Another thing, as soon as I select the Axe as speakers out, YouTube stop and so is MP3 file if im playing one.
    What am I missing?
    Thanks.

    Yes sure, it shows also its icon in the task bar.
    I can record using reaper DAW and selecting the Axe as my interface but it will not play sound.

    Ok, I guess I found out what the problem was...
    Decided the other day to clean my studio PC from many editors and drivers for many multi FX I had like POD HD500x, helix FX and……. Axe FX XL+.
    After uninstalling all these editors and drivers, the Axe III is now functioning nice and can play sound coming from the PC.

    BTW, it still crasehs / stops runing (sound) from time to time and than I have to unplug / plug the III USB cable.
    However, it doesnt happens to often.
