I’m finally getting around to digitizing old cassettes. The sound quality need not be awesome, but I would like to clean up some his, hum etc etc. So I went out and bought an inexpensive AGPtek (20$) Cassette to USB adapter on Amazon. It came packaged with Audacity. In Audacity one can use the Core Audio driver and have audio inputs be USB while outputs be the main stereo Outs of the mac or even the first two outputs of my 2408mk3.
Moving to Cubase, where I’d like to work (and apply plugins to clean up the audio) is it possible to do the same thing, namely have the audio come in via usb (directly from the adapter) and have the audio output monitor through either the main mac analog outs or the outputs of my 2408mk3? If Audacity, a free shareware program can do this, I can’t imagine that cubase would not be able to accomplish this.
