Everything was working fine when I last shut down Cubase five days ago but, today, when I launch the program and attempt to load a project, I get an error, “Missing Ports.”
When I look at Studio > Audio Connections, all of the input and output ports say “missing port” and the selection boxes offer no options.
If memory serves, the Control Room looks like it should. However, clicking on any of the ports reveals a drop-down that simply says “not connected.”
Needless to say, when I play a project, whether it’s mono, stereo, or surround, there’s no movement on the meters and no audio.
The problem appears to be isolated to Cubase. Other programs that use the same device inputs/outputs (e.g., WaveLab, Resonic) exhibit no such problems.
Any ideas? The only change I’ve made to my computer since I last shut down Cubase was an apparent Windows Update (KB4601319) that I don’t recall allowing, but there it is.
Any assistance is appreciated.
