Running Cubase Studio 4. Do not external record. Use imported .wav files. Have had great success editing, mastering, completing many projects. However, my first foray into adding VST instruments has me stymied. Scoured Cubase 4 Power-The Comprehensive Guide; Help Manual; This Forum; YouTube Tutorials. As you can imagine, I’m worn out from looking and nothing working.
That being said, here’s the problem: I add an instrument track, select HalionOne/Steel Drum. First sign of trouble is in the VST Instruments window, I can’t select the Play button to preview the sound. It won’t stay clicked whether MIDI input is selected or not. So, I go ahead and add the instrument track and create the MIDI track when prompted.
All subsequent settings appear to follow what I’ve scoured above, but I cannot for the life of me get a steel drum sound to even render into audio. The file is in my system, but I am having no success.
Can anyone either help me out with some basic information or point me at the right direction?
Thanks in advance, Broadway Wallis.
