I am noticing something i did not before. With my UR44, all the latest driver and anciliary software installed, when I use Cubase, monitoring is as one would expect, I have direct monitoring turned off and monitor through the DAW, I have enough horsepower that latency is not generally an issue.
But today, I decided for the first time, I would run Reaper on this machine. Immediately I noticed that direct monitoring does not seem to be switchable off. Regardless of the DSPmix settings the DAW channel), my inputs are being fed to my master outs (L,R) on the UR44 all the time, and what’s even more bizarre is that the guitar I have plugged into input one (Hi-Z), the pot is not even turned up and I can clearly hear my guitar.
I checked the windows driver settings, windows sound settings, everything is normal. It makes me feel like something is wrong with the hardware, yet as soon as I launch Cubase, it behaves as any other interface I have worked with.
Anyone have any ideas, this is puzzling me.
