I have been playing around with Cubase Element 10.5 Trial version on my Windows 10 Home edition Laptop. I use Yamaha USB Mixing Studio MW 8cx as the interface with my laptop. It all worked well.
I purchased Element 10.5 today and installed it on my new Surface Laptop with Windows 10 Pro version (and intel i7 processor)
I could get no sound from Surface to the USB mixer. After hours of troubleshooting, it turns out that Yamaha Steinberg USB Driver V2.0.3 for Windows 10 was the culprit.
I removed it and it worked; with Windows Generic low latency USB audio drivers
This is unexpected and strange. The only difference is that my new Surface machine has
- More powerful processor i7
- Windows 10 Pro (not home)
- Why is Steinberg’s provided driver not working?
- Will I be OK with Windows Generic low latency USB audio driver?
A bit technical issue but hoping to get a response
