I am new to the forum but thought this would be a great place to get some help with diagnosing the problem that I am having with my current setup and Cubase LE 5.
Non-essential Background Info:
I purchased a Zoom R24 recorder some years back and have only been using it as a stand alone unit up until now. I installed the supplied Cubase LE 5 on my PC when I got the unit but never used it. I got a new computer, which is a MacBook Pro, about 2 years ago and re-Installed Cubase LE 5. I remember the e-licenser being kind of a pain the second time especially. I have also updated the Zoom software version (1.12) as well as the driver (1.4), the most recent releases.
MacBook Pro, 2.6 GHz i7 processor, 8 GB Ram, OS X 10.10.2
Anyways, fast forward to now when I actually want to use the Zoom as my interface (8 inputs) and I can get no sound out of playback from Cubase or any other computer program (itunes, youtube, etc) using this interface. I have set up Cubase to the same specs as given in the manual as well as multiple forums and tutorial videos. Here are some of my device setup and VST connections screen shots attached for reference.
The zoom is being used as a Mackie controller, and I have no problem using the machine to make the software play, record, solo tracks, adjust track levels, navigate etc. This leads me to believe that the machine and the software are “talking” fine on some levels. I can also hear the input source such as my keyboard for example when it is plugged into the Zoom as an audio interface, regardless to if Cubase is running or not. When played, the notes will play through my speakers as they are attached to the Zooms stereo outputs, and I have successfully recorded wave forms from my keyboard onto Cubase while running the software.
I have noticed that when I go to my sound preferences, My Zoom driver has no type. My MPC Renaissance is seen as “USB” and my internal speakers as “Built In” etc. But the Zoom Driver is just blank…? Is this my problem? I just updated the Driver today, and have had the same problem with both versions that I ran today.
I am hoping you guys can help me come to some conclusion!
Thanks for your time and help,
