I could not find a reference to this particular situation, so I thought I’d throw it out for some feedback.
I have just starting to run Cubase 6.5 on my MacBook Pro (i5, 8gb), using the Focusrite Scarlett i816 USB interface. I have the latest drivers loaded for the hardware, have selected the i816 in the VST Audio System, have set the VST Connection inputs and outputs. I know Cubase is recognizing the I/F because I get output from the audio files that I’ve loaded. Yet when I select the input bus for any of the Focusrite inputs, it does give me any input signal. I can see the input on the I/F is getting signal, and I’ve also tested this in Logic Pro 9 and it recognizes the signal without any problems.
What steps may I be overlooking to get audio into Cubase? I figure it’s just something very simple that I haven’t checked or set correctly, but it’s baffling at the moment. I’ve stepped through the hookup process quite a few times and yet I haven’t been able to record an audio track in Cubase yet.
Thanks for any suggestions.
