Long time lurker, first time poster here. I have really enjoyed getting to know Cubase 6.5 over the last 12 months. I am using 6.5.5 at the moment. One of the first hurdles I struck and have persisted with for this long has been getting Cubase to recognise the audio interface I use, the MOTU Track16.
It seems virtually every time I open Cubase up for a session, I have to go through the following ritual:
I open Cubase. I receive a message saying,
“No MOTU Audio device could be found. Make sure your MOTU Audio device is connected, powered on, and that the drivers are installed”.
This takes place as the Video File Handling file is loading.
Next, I receive the same message when VST Audio System file is loading.
Then the Missing Ports alert with all the unmapped Ports appears for obvious reasons.
It seems regardless of whether I turn on the interface first or after opening Cubase, I invariably have to turn it off and back on again to make the appropriate connections via Device setup and VST Connections Outputs. I go back in and deselect and reselect MOTU Audio ASIO for both and then I am good to go.
It just seems labour intensive and after putting up with it for so long I thought I would do something about it and ask here to see if anyone could help out.
I think the only time I have turned everything on and had it work first time was after having the audio device on for several minutes prior to opening Cubase. Seems like the laptop I use did a quick scan and recognised the device and informed Cubase once it opened that the audio interface was there. I am no computer boffin so I am only guessing here.
Thanks for reading,
