3 year Cubase user here. Love it, but sometimes, midi can get a bit ARRRGH
Cubase Pro 11 Mac OSX 10.15.7
Unexpectedly, I got a warning similar to this,
Except for the fact that I am using a Focusrite Scarlett interface.
I dismissed it, because I don’t need midi to work on it. So I went about my business.
Scarlett was working, playing audio back on Cubase.
I went to program midi, using my usual (keyb to mac) USB connection. That didn’t work.
So I tried plugging a midi cable into the Scarlett, and managed to set it up to work. I was able to receive midi on Cubase.
However, my Cubase audio died. Strange thing is, I was still able to hear audio from my browser, through the Scarlett.
So I figured this is an ASIO issue. OK, I checked:
It would NOT allow me to add the Scarlett as an audio system.
Here we see it won’t recognize the Scarlett either.
Next step was to install the latest driver for the interface. Restarted the computer a few times.
I even ripped out Cubase and re-installed it. Nothing.
Possibly, it’s my lack of midi accountability when I’m programming…I kept hearing a synth track playing in that weird “hidden synth” thing they do. So annoying. My work around is just to rip tracks out in an effort to clean the palate up.
I think I read something about “breaking” configurations simply by deleting tracks. Maybe I did that…
Which led me to re-installing and IMMEDIATELY making/saving a new project. I thought that would reset things, but NOPE. I’d had hopes of exporting the old project into a new one , but NYET.
At my wits end here.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
