Cannot hear output channel when recording only on playback

I can get Cubase to record an audio track, and I can hear the raw input, however the meters for the output channel do not move, and I can’t hear any of the effects etc. that I added via inserts. When I playback however, I do see it is coming via the output channel and I hear the effects of the inserts for some reason. I am using a UR44C interface. I’m thinking I’m making an obvious mistake that an experienced user would know. If necessary I might be able to figure out how to record a video of my setup.




What is the Output of the Audio track? Do you use any Insert on the Stereo Out channel?

Turn off the Direct Monitoring.

Direct monitoring is meant when you dont want to monitor using Cubase but your audio interface instead. Thats the problem.

Thank you guys! Direct monitoring was the culprit.
