Cubase pro 9

I’m having problems tonight with cubase pro 9 [ive got everything setup correctly. -inputs & outputs and added Busses and speaker monitor is all on and connected up /I’ve got my cubase pro 9 on my laptop computer windows vista and this is connected up to my Q16 Allen and heath mixing desk. I connected up one microphone, and that signal is coming through on the recording/play/stop on the cubase. Also I can hear the mic on channel one [connected] on the Q16 desk ,ive even gone into the volume setups on my laptop computer ,the problem is there is no playback volume at all , and on the cubase-recording screen there is only a straight line ———- ! Can anyone help out with this recording/setup /volume issues [i also cannot hear anything through headphones connected to this laptop computer and cubase Even tho I have ‘monitor ‘ to on position :+1:t4:


Maybe some screenshots of the setup might help.

As far as I know, Windows Vista is not supported system for Cubase 9.
