Just built a new system (Win 7 64-bit, Cubase 6.5, and bought an M-Audio Fast Track Ultra USB device) and I have a question about busses and routing.
I used to run an M-Audio Delta 66 card, and I could record into Cubase from stereo inputs 1&2 and 3&4, as well as from the main stereo monitor, out of the soundcard. Recording from the main stereo monitor out of the card, meant that I could record from one (or more) tracks in Cubase, down to another track in Cubase (because Cubase would record the output of the soundcard.
With the M-Audio Fast Track Ultra, I can only seem to record (into Cubase) from the stereo inputs 1&2 and 3&4. I can’t work out how to record the stereo mix coming out the Fast Track Ultra. That is, I can’t seem to work out how set up the busses, so that Cubase is recording the output of Cubase???
What I really want to do is get Cubase to always record the full mix coming out of the soundcard, and just mute the inputs on the soundcard when required. Does anyone know the best way to set this up on a Fast Track Ultra, and in Cubase busses?
Also, if I’ve got about 100 projects from Cubase 4, with the old Delta 66 busses set up. Do I need to re-do all the audio busses on all the tracks in each of the projects again? Or, is there a quicker way? Like, is there a way can you set it up the busses in Cubase, and have them apply to old Cubase 4 projects when you open them, or do you have to go in, track-by-track, in every old project to change them?
Respect for anyone who takes the time to read all this, and gets back to me.
