I’ve just switched to Mac after years of Cubase on Windows. Most things on Cubase 9 make sense, but I’m struggling with the Control Strip.
The module blocks are there, I can turn them on and off, I can select which Compressor or Tape Saturation etc plugin I want … but there are simply no controls visible, just empty boxes. If I move the cursor over the boxes, outlines appear where controls ought to be.
And if I go to the Edit Channel Settings for the individual track, where I’m supposed to also be able to adjust the Channel Strip modules, the same thing … empty boxes. The EQ controls are all visible below that, and the EQ section of the Channel Strip in the Mixer works fine, with the rack showing the small display, which I can adjust easily. So I don’t understand what’s different for the Channel Strip controls.
I know the Control Strip only works with Audio channels. So what am I doing wrong? I’m baffled.
NB. I’ve also just realised that the metering in the Control Room Mixer is also not showing properly.
