I noticed that, with Asio-Guard ON (on “normal” setting), if I record a track there’s saturation on both monitoring and playback.
Today I was recording vocals with a guy that tells me that “voice in the headphones is “strange””. I checked every single thing could cause such this thing so I clear every slot and every send on that track leaving ON only the monitoring. When I tried to uncheck “asio-guard” (the only thing i changed from a couple of day ago) the problem disappeared.
Do you think is possible? It’s so strange no-one noticed this issue…
I tried even with different pre-s (Focusrite Saffire Pro 40, Focusrite Octopre, Telefunken V672, other stuff) and the problem was still there.
I tried to monitor the signal directly from the MixControl panel of the Saffire Pro 40 and there were no saturation/distortion so the problem is in Cubase.
I use Cubase Pro 8/8.0.10 on Windows7x64 with the firewire Saffire Pro 40.
Thanks to all of you!
