I’m running my guitar through an M-Audio Fast Track Pro, into my computer and for some reason I cannot get a signal to register in the audio track (and therefore cannot record). I have signal coming through my speakers, just not going into Cubase. I have my VST Connections configured
Stereo In - Left: Line in 1 Fast Track Pro
Right: Line in 2 Fast Track Pro
Stereo Out - Analog 1/2 Fast Track Pro - 1
Analog 1/2 Fast Track Pro - 2
When I go to Channel section of the track select any of the channels.
Is this a common newbie problem? I’d really appreciate some help.
Open your Cubase Mixer in your project, expand it vertically, and assign the channels you are using. This is different than making your outboard connections from the Devices tab. It’s a two step process.
Sure, see the mixer window? In the left hand upper corner, there’s another little arrow head. Click on that and you will see another section of the mixer open. In the top section (that you will open when you click the arrow head) the opportunity to route your channel to the outboard device input will appear. Yeah?
Is there a reason you are using a stereo input bus? Are you running through some type of processor with stereo output or plugging your guitar directly into your interface (I’m assuming a standard guitar with mono output)?
Also, you will probably need to enable the track’s monitor button.
Thanks for the responses. I’m running my guitar stereo.
I’ve expanded the mixer but I’m still not sure how to get signal into Cubase… I’m getting signal through my computer speakers. I’ve taken another screen grab and attached it. I’m sorry to keep pestering you guys. I don’t know why I can’t figure this out. I didn’t have a problem with the earlier version of Cubase I used to use.
I haven’t been able to see any signal activity anywhere at all. I used to use Cubase SX but never had this problem. I’m getting sound through the speakers though… Here’s another screenshot. Thanks again, gentlemen, I appreciate the help!
Hey, I think I just figured this out by going to Device Setup > VST Audio System and then changing it from DirectX Full Duplex driver to M-Audio USB ASIO. Seeing those bars shoot up when I strum the guitar now. I think I might have it sorted. Thanks for taking the time to read this thread everyone. Much appreciated!
