Hi, I’m having a really weird issue.
I have a pair of mics connected to the Steinberg UR22C Audio Interface, and am trying to do a recording using Cubase. (I am on Cubase 10.5.12, Mac OSX Mojave)
I set everything up according to the manual of the UR22C, and according to all the explanations I could find online (in the Studio–Audio Connections and Studio-Studio setup parts of Cubase). I even checked the “audio midi setup” settings of my mac to make sure the audio interface is selected as the input. On the track i’m trying to record to, I can see the volume monitor meters (or whatever that’s called) move as I’m testing the mics, so it’s definitely reaching Cubase. (The audio interface also works properly when I use it for Zoom meetings and in other applications - so no issue with the drivers, which are current)
But, when I actually record, the file that is created is totally blank - silent, nothing on it. I’ve tried everything I could think of, and am out of ideas.
Here is a video of a screen-recording of me showing the options in Cubase and showing the recording that ends up blank, even though on the left you can see that audio signal is coming in.
Has anyone here encountered this? Am I missing something in how I’ve configured things (I try to show all relevant options in this screengrab), or is it some kind of bug?
I had hoped that getting the audio interface by Steinberg would work extra-smoothly in Cubase…
One thing I was surprised by is that I cannot select the built-in mic or speakers in Cubase once I’ve selected the audio interface - but maybe that’s normal, that one cannot mix & match and use the built-in audio for output, and an audio interface for input? But in any case, this is a minor issue - my main problem is that the recordings are blank.
