I feel incredibly foolish for asking this question, but I’ve been searching all over the Internet and cannot figure it out I accidentally removed Steinberg’s UR22 from my computer’s “speaker properties,” and now I can’t hear anything I record. It seems to still record, and the device setup shows the midi input as still active–but when I go to the device setup, the midi out is listed inactive. I’m not sure how to reactivate?? I tried going in through the control panel (hardware and sound>device manager) but it says the device is working properly and is enabled. (I tried disabling and re-enabling but no success.) Any advice for a rookie? Thank you!
Also, as I am clearly over my head with trying to learn Cubase 7, do you have any suggestions on the best way to learn without putting myself through these accidental headaches? I know there’s going to be a lot of trial and error along the way, but if you can recommend any DVDs or books that teach Cubase 7, I would deeply appreciate it. Thanks again!
Thank you, BriHar! Uninstalling and re-installing was exactly what I needed to do. Thank you also for the advice about the Steinberg courses and tutorials.
In answer to your question, I am hoping to learn to use Cubase to record my own compositions–recording both voice and instruments (mostly midi although a few woodwinds over the mic). I want to learn to record and edit effectively, and in time I would also like to learn to use the score editor.
I just remembered that there’s a site that will speed things up for you with a series of short videos that many watch.
[Short as in 4-15 minutes long each.]
Once there, you have 3 options:
Buy the videos outright and watch them where & when you want.
Pay $15.00 and watch everything on their site for a month.
Pay $150.00 and watch everything on their site for a year.
[$99.00 sale once in a while - usually at the end of the year.]
The Cubase 7 videos can easily be viewed in one sitting of 2-3 hours, or across a day or two [or at any pace you like].
Ideally, you would have Cubase up & running as you watch along and emulate what’s being done & shown in the video[s] for hands on practice & visual on-screen results.
Then you could view the Cubase 7.5 ones if you choose to upgrade.
You can also find some things on Youtube as suggested above, although for the $15, I would go with Groove3 first, as they start with the basics and progress along logically & categorically.
So that’s 73 videos almost 9 hours in total for just $15.00.
[You could easily watch them again & again within the one-month time frame.]
Hope this helps.
By the way, I commend you on your chosen desire of wanting to learn Cubase 7.
Some consider it to be one of the harder DAWs out there, although I find it easier than my first 2 DAWs.
It certainly has much to offer, although myself, I may never use some of the many options & features that it has but it’s nice to know they’re there if ever needed.
Thank you so much, Jamusic! That was very encouraging and insightful! Yes, I will definitely look over those videos, and I will also start with Key Editor before getting into Score Editor. Thank you for your time!
