Cubase 13 does not record

Cubase 13: The program does not record. Ik can hear the guitar. It looks like their is a connection missing, although audio-coctions seem to be OK.


Are you on Windows or Mac? Which version?

How does the Audio Connections > Inputs look like?

Are you talking about audio, right?

If you are on Mac: Make sure Cubase has enabled Mic in the System Preferences, please.
Open macOS System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Microphone. Enable Cubase here.

Good morning Martin,
I use a Macbook Pro 15". Since 28 september with OS Sonoma.
The Audio Connections look in order, as I learned it.
I talk about recording audiotracks.
I have enabled Cubase 13 for the microfoon.
Cubase does still not record.


Could you attach a screenshot of the

  • Audio Connections > Inputs
  • The Project window, while recording, where we can see:
    – Record Enable and Monitor button
    – Selected Input of the track
    – Meters

dear Martin. Thanks to your questions i managed to solve the problem. For the microfone the red enable button en the monitor button stood wrong, and the electric guitar: I had forgotten to switch on the D.I. box. It’s working fine now. Thank you!
