When changing the output bus of a track in cubase, that track will no longer send signal to the D/A converter until I have solo’d / un-solo’d the track. I can duplicate the behaviour with any project, new or old.
I have cleared all preferences and started a new project, imported a single audo test track and can replicate the behaviour.
This is a recent development after installing a MOTU 24Ao (for output D/A) connected to my computer via USB. There is also a UR824 connected to the computer via USB for A/D inputs. The MOTU and UR824 are linked via ADAT for clock with the UR824 as master (no particular reason).
I’ve upgraded the MOTU to the lastest firmware and spoken with MOTU. Got nothing.
I logged a ticket with Steinberg (greate support BTW) but the only suggestion was delete preferences and start a new project. I did this and it makes no difference (except all my preferences are gone - ugh). I have a work around since solo/unsolo (or even mute/unmute if the track was already solo’d) resolves the issue, but it is clearly a bug.
Has anyone had a similar experience? Is there a resolution? I’m not convinced this is a cubase problem, only that cubase is the only bit I’m changing to either invoke or clear the issue. Could be a USB issue for all I know.
