I recently bought an upgrade (or “update” as Steinberg has it) for Cubase 4/5 --> 6. I own Cubase 5 and I have an eLicenser.
I installed Cubase on my laptop using the update disc without a prior installation and registered my license key.
Beginning my first project with this new setup, the first thing I notice is that Cubase is not by default using the system audio output; I can’t hear anything. I open the Device Setup and the VST Audio System has an exclamation mark next to it, and when selected the settings pane displays this message:
VST Audio System
Device failed to open!
Pressing the reset button does nothing, it seems. Cubase is effectively unusable for me.
If anyone knows about this issue, please reply with what you know, or if there is any information I can provide to help diagnose this issue, please ask me.
Thanks in advance,
- I have tried 32-bit and 64-bit modes to no avail
- I connected my Saffire to see if Cubase would register it; no dice
- I just realized my update from 10.7.2 to 10.7.3 failed. Trying again…
