I’ve been using Cubase 7 and 9 for about 4 years now on my MacBook Pro. I was forced to update the MacOS to Catalina (10.15) by a software project, and that broke my Cubase 9 DAW system. I’m on my 2nd UR44 (the first one got dropped and damaged).
Having gotten through the arduous install process for 11, and updating to this level:
UR44: v2.2.1 firmware
Yamaha-Steinberg Mac Driver: v 2.0.5
Cubase Elements v 11.0.20
the app runs, and plays back my Elements 9 projects, but is missing some key features.
If I switch a track from recorded → live channel input (e.g., mic):
• the mic input is pushed into output, but without any of the fx processing specified for it in Inserts
• the aqua-colored volume bar for the track goes to zero despite input being received
• when I try to re-record a mic track, the waveform shows flat 0 signal
• upon playback, it’s clear the recorded signal was flat 0.
The Studio Setup is showing “active” for all the inputs.
It’s confusing to have added “loopback” as a default. It makes it difficult to tell what is failing in the input signal processing chain.
Why would only these specific aspects of Elements 11 not be working?
I can’t perform my 1-man band act until this gets fixed. Has anyone encountered this, or understand what all the above missing features have in common?
