Cubase 10.0.30, Windows 10 Pro 1903, UMC404HD driver 4.59.0
Only ASIO drivers are Behringer and ‘generic’ installed with Cubase.
UMC Control panel buffer shows “ASIO not active” with Cubase running, so there is no sound (no meters during playback).
‘Release driver’ is checked.
Combinations of minimizing/selecting Cubase and/or changing the ASIO driver will activate the driver.
The first run after boot, I can get everything working by starting Cubase, then shifting the focus away from Cubase, then back to Cubase.
Subsequent runs are dicey, UNLESS I disconnect/reconnect the UMC404HD.
It’s like Cubase doesn’t want to ‘grab’ the ASIO driver for itself.
This problem did not occur until I had to reinstall Windows 10 and Cubase after an ill advised MBR2GPT misadventure. So now, it’s a fresh installation of everything with problems.
Only one difference sticks out, new motherboard which seems to only have USB3 on it.
ANy thoughts? (Please spare me the ‘get a real interface’ comments).
