Cubase LE AI Elements 8 not working

I opened up Cubase today like I always have: Device setup (ASIO to Firepod), project setup (24 bit, etc). Sound in MacBook system preferences set to Firepod. I plug in my guitar to Firepod and when I tap record I get nothing but a straight line. Volume controls are all up. Haven’t changed any controls on my guitar. Anyone have any idea what’s wrong?


Make sure, the correct ASIO driver is selected in the Studio > Studio Setup > Audio System.

Make sure Cubase has enabled Mic in the System Preferences, please.
Open macOS System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Microphone. Enable Cubase here.
