This is a Windows 8.1 laptop and I do mean ALL AUDIO - no You Tube audio, WIndows Media Player wouldn’t recognize OR play mp3, WAV or other file formats it should recognize and play. I tried other audio players, all silent! Uninstalling the main LE 9 product returned normal audio. I am completely new to DAW platforms and am eager to get started with Cubase but it’s pretty hard to record my songs without audio. I was able to install WaveLab LE 9 without losing audio but I would prefer to have a working Cubase install. Any assistance is certainly appreciated.
