This just started happening. I set up Cubase to record either a VST instrument or MIDI from my Yamaha Genos. Yesterday, the meters in the track were bouncing but I had no sound. Today the meters don’t even bounce. I can still activate sound from the VST plugin’s keyboard.
I have the Genos connected through USB MIDI. I checked all the USB ports on my computer to make sure they work. To do this, I plugged a thumb drive into each one and made sure it was displayed in Explorer. So, the physical ports are all working. I even wired my Genos MIDI ports to my UR44 MIDI ports using the old DIN connectors. I was hoping I had a bad USB cable. The same problem occurs, so it’s not cabling. All audio files play perfectly in Cubase. I don’t think the problem is in Cubase.
In the Device Manager, I noticed one error message on two of the USB Composite Devices (one where my Genos is plugged in I think). It reads, “Device USB\VID_046D&PID_C52B\6&7b94664&0&2 was not migrated due to partial or ambiguous match.” I’ve read all kinds of solutions to this on the net but nothing works. The most popular theory is that a Windows update has screwed with the migration.
I’m ready to record but can’t. Any ideas on how to fix this, besides dumping MS and buying a Mac? Thanks.
