Cubase 8 Elements - no sound on audio tracks

Hi everyone

I’m trialing Cubase 8 Elements and can’t get any sound. In detail:
Windows 10 64 bit
Behringer UCA222 USB audio interface.

I think I’ve set inputs and outputs correctly. I can record and see the wave pattern on the screen, but when I play back (monitor off) I get silence, or sometimes a burst of sound that fades away.

If I use the speaker tool-bar button and run it over the wave pattern I can hear the track, but not when I use play in the transport bar.

I can here click track and midi drums so somethings working!

As an absolute beginner, any help and advice would be much appreciated.



Hi and welcome,

Open Devices > Device Setup > Driver name (under the VST Audio System, on the left side). On the right-side, click to Control Panel. Here, in the Control Panel, increase the Buffer Size (or latency).

I hope, this helps.

Hi there

Thanks for your suggestion and apologies for not replying sooner - I’ve been away from the computer for a couple of weeks.
I eventually discovered that the VST dynamics insert was loading by default - switching the gate off produced sound.
However, I still had some probelms so I’ve bought a new interface - a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 - and things seem to be working ok now.
Just got to learn how to use Cubase, which could take some time…
