I’m running Cubase Elements 8 on PC Windows 10 64bit.
I’ve tried plugging in various USB audio devices: Blue Icicle, Zoom H4N, M-Audio M-Track (MkII).
They show up in “Devices/VST Connections/Inputs” and in “Devices/Device Setup/Asio DirectX Full Duplex Driver” (except the M-Audio, which has it’s own Driver) and the ASIO control panel and they show as “Active” but there is no audio input to Cubase: nothing shows on the meters and nothing records.
I have checked the USB audio devices (Icicle, Zoom and M-Audio) on other computers running other audio software and they’re fine.
Has anyone any ideas on what’s going on and how to fix it, please?
Apparently you picked the correct audio device driver in the "Device Setup menu.
You went to the VST Connections menu and apparently picked the correct connections on both the “Input” and “Output” tabs.
Next step is to make sure you have assigned the Input and Output routing to each track you are trying to record to.
There are a few ways to do this but most common is probably doing it in the track inspector section.
Highlight a track then, in the inspector, click on the track number to bring down the section where you assign the input and output routing.
Choose wisely and it will be working.
If not, you will have to explain in more detail (or provide screen shots) about what is listed in the VST Connections menu and in the track Inspector section.
