Recently I updated the driver & software for my RME Fireface UFX soundcard & some changes have been made that have messed with my settings a bit. Just for the record I’m on Cubase 10 but the same thing is happening in older Cubase 9 files.
When it comes to software, VST instruments and all appear fine.
But in terms of hardware synthesizers, I noticed a problem when using the setup I’ve had for years was working on all but external instruments. When I played a synthesizer in (to utilize its own sounds) I could see the MIDI coming in but I couldn’t hear any audio. The audio signal on the audio track isn’t being routed to the Stereo Out — which it’s setup to do.
After a while I realized that “Direct Monitoring” is selected under Studio & and that I have to turn the Monitor button on to hear and have the signal routed to the Main Output, which is the opposite of before. I never needed to select Monitor on external audio tracks. Any clue as to what might have changed?
As I said before the VST instrument MIDI or Instrument tracks are good to go, this is just with Audio Tracks and external synthesizers.
Appreciate any suggestions.
