So I finally started learning music production, but I am so confused about my audio drivers. I am using Cubase Elements 10 by the way. I am following a course to learn, but my issue is odd. I have 3 Audio Drivers according to the Studio Setup window from the Studio tab: ASIO4all v.2, Realtek ASIO, and Generic Low Latency ASIO Driver.
When I am using ASIO4allv.2, I get no sounds from the playback on my file manager when I try to import a sound sample. With Realtek ASIO, which is my computer’s default audio device driver, for some reason, prompts Cubase to give me an ASIO Sample Rate Change prompt (which I can see has its own thread on this forum, but does not solve my problem) whenever I change the volume on my computer. Generic Low Latency ASIO Driver works properly, however, when I use it, my other sources such as Youtube and Udemy which use audio do not play anymore, which is an issue since I use a course on Udemy to learn Cubase. I did go into my Audio Device properties at one point to uncheck an Exclusive mode checkbox outlined in one of the posts on another Steinberg forum thread (https://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=101031), however, that just caused my output to be messed up since when I go into “Audio Connections” and then “Output” both the right and left outputs will display “Missing Connections” which I cannot change.
Is there any way to get everything working without having to buy an external audio driver or something? I’m not really familiar with audio drivers so I’ll try to make sense of any suggestions or explanations that you people tell me.
Thanks for reading!
