    If for some reason the built-in audio doesn't work you can try this trick from GeniusDV: Using Avid Media Composer with Unsupported Audio Card.

    Re: Cannot Install Trial MC 4 - audio

    Many thanks - I tried the ideas in the artice, including a re-install, but same result.  What's a decent basic soundcard that MC would live with?

    Thank you

    Hi there, a basic SoundBlaster should be up to the job, before You give up try uninstalling the software that came with the audio board except for the driver, and make sure that the card is configured for stereo output. By searching the forum for realtek You'll find plenty of info.

    as Luca says John, and this is the same type of recommendations that we have always done at the Liquid boards.

    Even if you are able to get your sys up and running with onboard audio, an external audio card will help both your motherboard and your sys to work better, same in both MC and Liquid
