Today I was testing vst connect se and performer for the first time, and it didn’t run as expected. I was just going to test it to see if it is working, since I am going to have a recording session this weekend and need everything to work by then.
For the purpose of the test I installed vst connect performer on my computer, and on the other end is my dads computer with latest version of cubase pro 8. I used teamviewer to control my dads computer.
On my end there was a UR44 and on my dad’s end a UR824.
I opened a project on my dads computer and created a few sampletracks, all in all 4 tracks with some drums, guitar and so on. I looped 4 bars. I then created and opened vst connect se according to the manual. After that I set up a proper cue mix where every channel got sent to vst connect at a value of 0 db (i.e. default value).
I then connected my vst performer on my computer entering the password provided by my dad’s computer. I was connected and could see myself through my webcam. I then noticed that vst performer on my end had a red light shining in the “led” light in the upper middle field. The led is called CON (as in connect??)
It was constant red. When playing back on my dad’s computer there was no sound, and nothing indicating that the playback was on. It should show in my performer window on what bar the playback is on at my dad’s end! I tried to turn some of the knobs in the vst connect window on my dad’s end, and the knobs were moving accordingly on my end in the vst performer window. But no sound and a constant red “CON” light.
What did I do wrong?
