I just started using RME Babyface Pro with Cubase 8.5. I have a newby question re the setup. I am using only in-the-box virtual instruments, soft synths, and samples. I don’t want to use any of the DSP of the Babyface, just all the mixing and FX from inside Cubase.
Is it as simple as just turning the Babyface ON - or is there something I should do especially with the settings? The only thing I did was turn OFF the EQ in the Babyface.
When a project in Cubase is playing back, I see sound coming in on the AN 1/2. Fader there is at 0db. The main output is at -10. Does it matter what the Main output is in terms of sound quality of what I process in Cubase, or is it just the monitoting level and can I keep that at whatever level I want without affecting audio quality, eg when rendering in Cubase?
