Cubase ai isn't picking up my mic properly

Hi there,

I have been using Cubase for a few years to record vocals and not had any issues, however since yesterday, Cubase doesn’t seem to pick up sound properly from my mic - it doesn’t show a waveform, however when you increase the volume you can see a very small waveform, but it’s barely audible/visible.

I’ve checked all of the cable connections, tried plugging the mic in to input 2 instead of 1, checked the VST connections and still can’t get it working like it was.

Does anyone have any idea what might have happened, and any advice on how to fix this issue?

Any help gratefully received.


Hi and welcome on the forum,

Please, double-check your Audio Device settings. Make sure, you are using mic input, make sure the Gain is setup properly.

Could you attach a screenshot of Studio > Audio Connections > Inputs, please?
