I am new to Bela and I am somewhat uncertain if the Left and Right audio outputs are functioning correctly.
I understand that the DC 5V power is required to power the on-board amps. When I connect a 5V 1A tip-positive power supply and an 8 Ohm speaker to J5 or J6, I hear a pulsing (kind of like a heart beat) and the speaker diaphragm is pushed forward and out to its fullest extent. This happens regardless if a project is running.
Furthermore, when I run the sample-loader project, I am only able to hear faint audio output from the J4, but not from J5 or J6. I am working under the assumption that J5 and J6 are the amplified outputs of J4. Is this correct?
Thanks in advance,
