I am a newb with Cubase Elements 6. I want to use one mic to make 2 mono tracks. I can record on both of them and see the recorded input waves on their respective tracks, but only the first track plays back audibly. What am i doing wrong ?
My single mic is plugged into the first port of my ProSonus AudioBox USB interface. I have the two mono instrument tracks appearing in the Project Window, with Mono 1 as input to the first track and Mono 2 as input to the second track. For both tracks I have Stereo Out selected as their outputs in the Inspector. And in the VST Connections for Outputs the Stereo Out Left channel has OUT 1 as the Device Port and the Stereo Out Right channel as OUT 2 as the Device Port. I also have a Mono1 bus with Device Port OUT 1 and a Mono2 bus with Device Port OUT 2.
In the Inspector I have tried Stereo as the Output for the track which records but doesn’t play back audibly the audio. I have also tried for this same track which doesn’t play back using Mono1 and Mono2 as the Output.
This is confusing as hell for me.
If the foregoing is jibberish, could somebody just tell me simply how to make 2 mono tracks and use the same mic and port on my audio interface to record to separate audio tracks (one for guitar and one for vocal).
