Someone up to giving me a quick refresher, please?
If I untick Direct Monitoring in the Devices> Audio page … then to hear a vocal while recording I have to also hit the monitor button in the track I’m recording to hear the vocal through a headphone connection from the Stereo Out. Correct?
How do you increase the output volume from the track being recorded while monitoring without changing the gain level you are recording? Or can you?
If you have ASIO 2.0 compliant hardware with Direct Monitoring then you must tick Direct Monitoring in Devices> Audio and in your hardware mixing software in order to monitor. Correct? So, when the manual says ticked Direct Monitoring will switch automatically, that means if you haven’t enabled Direct Monitoring in your mixing software, Cubase will behave exactly as if the option is not ticked? Or, if not, then what does automatic switching mean?
ASIO Direct Monitoring bypasses Cubase … the part you’re hearing, not the input to Cubase being recorded. So, what you hear is unaffected by any effects running in Cubase on the input, recorded tract, bus or main out. So is the only advantage/ reason for using this to reduce CPU load and thereby latency? Or, is this also the only way you can increase the relative volume of what is going into your mic and back to your headphones through your hardware mixer software.
Does Control Room incorporate or preclude ASIO Direct Monitoring? Besides permitting more than one submix send, what other, if any, real advantage does it have over simply monitoring through Cubase?
Thanks for any help.
