I have been trying to record my guitar for Cubase 7 lately, and it was working smoothly a week ago with the VST Line 6 POD Farm and others… A week later after I went on Cubase it does not work anymore. I will explain the details.
I am running my setup from my guitar to my front mic on my computer with a guitar cable. (one side a 3.5mm headphone jack, other end a 1/4in jack) I want my guitar to run through to Cubase, but instead it goes straight through my speakers with a clean signal, and it looks like Cubase isn’t recognizing my guitar input, although I’ve verified the input jack through Cubase already. My audio driver is ASIO4ALL v2 which worked perfectly a week ago with Cubase and my guitar.
If someone could help that would be much appreciated, I’ve been struggling with this for a while and my trial is running out.
The whole idea of using the onboard sound card instead of a dedicated ASIO-compatible audio interface is a bit scary, but since you say it used to work before, I take your word for it.
Also, if you have a non-trial version of Cubase, please use it for the test I’m about to suggest, so that you shouldn’t waste your trial time. Version number doesn’t matter here.
Try to change/disable your onboard audio device as the main input/output device in Windows Control Panel. I assume you have set the VST Audio System and VST Connections under Cubase’s Devices menu correctly. This is not a tried and true solution. Just a suggestion.
Thanks for your concern to this problem, do you know exactly where I go in the control panel to change my onboard audio device? From what it looks like here, I think mine is Realtek High Def. audio. I will try to disable this and get back to you to see if it works. Thanks!!
It worked! I disabled my onboard audio device so it would work with Cubase. Thank you so much for solving this problem because my trial only has 22 days left. Much appreciated. Works perfectly again.
Thanks again, -Legion
Glad to have been of help.
You are most welcome.
