Today, I migrated Cubase Elements 7 to Windows 8.1 64-bit from Windows 7 32-bit.
I use a very simple but effective recording setup at the moment: a USB mic and my onboard Realtek HDA card, until I have some $ to spend on a UR22 and a decent mic.
Cubase’s devices worked well when it “inherited” the ASIO DirectX Full Duplex Driver after replacing Cubase Elements 6.
I want this driver to record an audio track with a USB microphone; without it, Cubase Device Setup cannot identify it.
For recording of audio tracks with other devices e.g. the Realtek HD audio card, I use the Generic Low Latency ASIO Driver which works very well.
Unfortunately, I have not found a way to make the ASIO DirectX Full Duplex driver work under the clean install of Cubase Elements 7 on Windows 8.1 64-bit.
How do I install and/or register the (32-bit) driver (from the previous Cubase Elements 6 installation):
