Not sure how this has happened as i am pretty much only using the computer for sequencing at the moment.
Outside of xlights audio is fine and i am currently on version 10.
Should i just update to 11 or could i be missing something else?

Right click on your speaker icon in the bottom task bar and select open Volume Mixer whilst xLighrs is running.
Check the slide for xLights is level with the others. If it's turned down there it'll have a much lower volume relative to the rest of the system.

Thanks @Skymaster somehow through some aimless fluffing around with sound options all is good but i now know another place to look :)

I have found that if another app takes exclusive use of the sound card for a period of time, then xlights won't make any sound until its closed and restarted.
