Can someone please help me understand the purpose/intended function of the “listen” button on each track in Cubase? And what exactly is “direct monitoring”? I’m just not understanding fully!
I understand from Steinberg Cubase tutorial videos: Steinberg hardware offers “direct monitoring” which i understand to be: hearing what’s coming directly from the UR22/44 and Not what’s coming thru my Cubase software. Is that right? When I disengage the “listen” button, I no longer hear my effects that I added in Cubase (reverb, delay, etc) So: I have to put the “listen” button ON to hear reverb while recording vocals, but then take the “listen” button OFF in order to hear playback! Which is a hassle! Is this how Cubase is intended to work? I want to hear my reverb while recording my vocal, and I don’t want to have to fight with that “Listen” button–turning it on and off, and on and off throughout every session! What am I doing wrong? Any advice, suggestions, insight greatly appreciated. Thanks Steve
