I just got my new cubase 7 and i have a question.
My input channel’s audio activity meter shows a constant low noise, without anything connected to my audio interface input.
I’m using M-Audio Fast Track Pro (not the best preamps in the world).
I’ve checked the VST Connection, they’re indeed pointing to the audio interface inputs.
I tried using the instrument/line options, Pad, and also lowering the gain (on the M-Audio) to zero, but still the meters indicate a low volume noise.
This doesn’t happen to me in Cubase 5 nor in Ableton Live 9.
My friend told me it might be that the Cubase 7 meters are so good that they sense the low volume noise from the preamps that other software (or previous versions) can’t determine.
Can anyone please explain me if this is a problem or really just sensitive meters in Cubase 7?
I also attached a screenshot of this problem.
Thanks a lot!
