I have a Korg X-50 synth and Cubase 5, on a PC. Up to now, I’ve been connecting via USB to PC to get MIDI.
Today, I bought the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 audio interface with a view to buying studio monitors. I hooked my synth up to the two inputs on the audio interface and then connected the interface via USB to the PC. All seemed to work fine. I ensured the settings were correct in Cubase in terms of ASIO driver and buses - all correct.
In my windows audio settings, I selected PC speakers as playback (I use a SoundBlaster Z soundcard in my PC), and the audio interface as record.
When I recorded an audio track in Cubase with my headphones connected to the X50, it recorded fine. However, when I came to play back, there was no sound.
The only way I could figure out to get sound, was to save the project, close Cubase, restart and change back to Creative ASIO, open the project and play back.
Is there no quicker/simpler way in which I can get the audio to play back through my PC speakers but to record using the audio interface??
