My current output/control room set up:
Main mix outputs L/R from Cubase = plugged into Line output 1/2 on my interface = “Not selected” in the outputs tab = studio monitors in the control room
Main mixing headphones = plugged into headphones output 1 = mix 2 monitors in control room
Vocal earbuds for vocal takes = plugged into headphones output 2 = mix 3 monitors in control room
A single Avantone mono speaker = plugged into Line output 3 on my interface = mix 4 monitor in control room
^The above works like a charm. No complaints there.
But, what I’d like to do now is that I have a piece of outboard gear that I want to use for processing. I want to route a line level signal out of the open Line output 4 on my interface (or 5, 6, 7, or 8, whichever one will work to be honest…) Then I want to route that signal back into my DAW to record the effects on my Line input channels 1/2.
BUT, I can’t get it to work…I have a 1/4" TRS balanced cable routed out of interface Line output 4 into my Line input on my outboard gear. I then create an output connection for Line output 4 in Cubase in the Outputs tab. Then I take my audio track, change it’s output to Line output 4. But, I can’t get a signal to my interface.
Any thoughts? Is my problem maybe stemming from DPSmix? FWIW, the interface is a Steinberg UR824, and the outboard gear I’m trying to route to is a TC Helicon Voicelive rack.
