I just updated my studio from Cubase 7 to pro 8 and i got the beautiful (my dreamed) audio interface LS 56. I set up almost everything, but I have few concerns as well.
Basically I’ve never used such advanced Interface like ls56 and i am aware of its amazing no latency monitoring technology and liquid channels.
I set all the buses - 14 stereo (28mono) Ins and did the same for Outs. I created one mono track and I wanna record guitar direct in to Cubase 8.
Now the two things I don’t really get and can’t find the answer anywhere and I hope you can explain me and guide me a little.
I am connecting the guitar into the front 3rd input of ls56 and I am changing the input source in the created audio track to (Stereo 2 - Right). On the front panel of saffire. After setting the right amount of gain I can see that the signal is peaking to the safe levels in the interface, so all good so far. But I can’t see the incoming signal in the audio activity input channel in Cubase and I am able to record the guitar only when I click on the monitor icon (the orange speaker). so it means that the audio is being recorded only from the monitoring output it also means that’s it’s being recorded with a 4-5ms latency as my buffer is set to 128 samples.
What do I have to do in order to record anything direct (real-time) without clicking on the monitor icon?
When I am creating the mono audio track i can see that the level meter is divided into two (stereo) and the track is stereo anyway but the captured performance is recorded in mono as i can see only one, middle wave form.
