Sorry if this has been asked a thousand times on this forum, but after having spent all this money on equipment and software I am at my wits end!
I am using M Audio Fast Track USB as the sound controller, on windows 7 64 bit. I have updated all my PCs sound + fast track drivers to latest models.
I have got to the stage where I have assigned the inputs to the right mono channels and I have successfully managed to record one guitar track and one microphone track simultaneously using both channels of the Fast Track device. I have 2 tracks with waveforms that look to be in perfect boundary levels ( not too high or low). When I play instruments or sing in real time I can see the levels change so Input is working fine.
The problem I am having is that I cannot find any way to listen back to the tracks. I have used the monitor control buttons in Cubase, made sure the direct monitoring button is turned off on fast track, and I have tried assigning 3 different output channels ( stereo, mono and completely unassigned ) in the Cubase output settings but none seem to make a difference. I have put my tracks on repeat play and tried pretty much every combination of settings available in Cubase and in the Windows control panel for Fast Track and system sounds ( made sure fast track selected for playback etc).
Any help or tips appreciated as I’m not sure what else is left to try.
