Ok, got it solved. Had to read 100 threads of UR44 users complaining about the same issue (good job Steinberg!). Jesus Christ… /facepalm
Solution (none of the other threads have it written clearly):
- Create an additional audio track.
- Set the input of that track to audio inputs that the synth is going to (create audio bus in the studio connections section if not done already) like 3-4 or 5-6 and output to stereo out.
- Turn the direct monitoring button on the new audio track on.
The steps 1-13 I omitted are just connecting/reconnecting everything, playing with settings, reading forum, asking forum, getting mad, putting UR44 for sale on craigslist, removing it from craigslist, yelling at it, cussing at Steinberg etc, getting drunk, punching UR44 etc… just the regular troubleshooting stuff…
