Hi all. I just picked up a Behringer UMC404HD to replace to use with my near-ancient home recording setup. I still use a 2006 iMac (4GB RAM, OSX 10.7) with Cubase LE 4. I’ve had the same setup for the last 10 years. I picked up this new interface after my last interface finally crapped out.
So, the UMC404HD does not appear to be natively compatible with Cubase LE 4 in my current setup. Upon starting the program, I’m given a message telling me that the ‘ASIO driver Behringer UMC404HD could not be loaded’ (or something like that. Then I get another error message telling me that the sample rate has changed.
When I navigate to Devices > Device Setup, the Behringer DOES appear as my selected audio driver, but I continue to get the message. I AM getting a MIDI signal to and from the interface. Furthermore, i do NOT have any of these issues in GarageBand, and I am able to use my interface to listen to audio online, etc.
I downloaded an old trial version of Cubase AI 5 to see if this was just unique to LE 4, but the situation seems even worse in AI 5. When I navigate to Devices > Device Setup, I get a big red error message in the actual window that says ‘Device not supported’ or something similar.
So here are my questions:
-Is there anything I can do to keep my current setup but be able to use the Behringer in Cubase?
-If I were to finally upgrade to a more modern computer, pick up something like Cubase Elements 9.5, can I expect the same compatibility issues? Is there something about Cubase that just doesn’t play nice with the UMC404HD?
-If I were to upgrade to a newer computer with Elements 9.5, will I be able to bring all of my audio files and Cubase project files over to this new computer and have them open in my new environment?
Thanks in advance!
