I read in the forums a lot and now it’s time to post something myself as I have been looking through the internet the last week but can’t seem to find an answer to my question
I use the Zoom R16 with Cubase 9 LE on my Macbook Pro in Audio Interface mode. I installed the newest Zoom drivers, set up Cubase (Device Settings, Mackie Controll, Input / Output settings in VST connections etc.) as seen in all the turtorials that I found. Now what I experience is the following:
When I set the VST connections to use the 8 Inputs on the Zoom and then add 8 audio mono tracks within the Cubase project, it shows 16 faders when I open the mixer. On the right side I see 8 inputs (faders are white) plus one master-fader and I can see audio signals entering. On the right side of the mixer, I see 8 Inputs from the Zoom (faders are red) plus one master-fader. There I don’t see any audio signal entering. When I move a fader on the Zoom (i.e. channel 2) I can see the channel two (red) fader on the right side of the Cubase mixer moving. But it doesn’t change anything about the volume of the input-audio-singal that I can hear. When I link the two channels (channel 2 on the left side of the mixer with channel two on the right side of the mixer) I can move the fader, and the audio signal gets louder or less loud as I move the fader around.
In all the tutorial I see that they only have 8 plus 1 master faders in the mixer-view right from the beginning after setting everything up and they move the fader (i.e. channel 2) and it moves the cubase channel 2 mixer where also the audio signal is seen entering.
Now I watched all the tutorials over and over and re-did all the settings in Cubase x times to make sure, I didn’t forget anything or made any mistake etc. but I just can’t get it to only show 8 plus one master fader for me.
Now I’m not sure if I’m doing anything wrong or if this is how it’s supposed to me on mac osx?
I figured maybe someone here can point me in the right direction or give me a hint
Thanks a lot in advance and have a great day everyone
