I just purchased a TASCAM US-144mkII and have been trying to use it with a previously installed Cubase Essential 4 (v. 4.5.2, build 278).
I can record and play back short clips - say, 10-12 seconds worth, when the “tracker” jumps to the extreme far right of the screen. The software then stops playing and freezes. I tried installing the included LE5 version and had the same results. Curious indeed!
Here are my computer specs:
AMD Phenom Quad-Core, 1.8 Ghz, 4GB RAM
Windows Vista Home Premium, 64 bit operating system, SP-2
Any ideas from any of you experts? Many thanks!
