No audio out in Cubase 9

Hello good people,

I am getting no audio out of Cubase 9. I managed to record audio, and see the wav/info, but when playing back I hear nothing. I see the signal in the mixer, both for the audio channel and stereo out, but nothing through my monitors or headphones. I have set the VST connections correctly, both In and Out. I am using a Mackie ONYX desk with a firewire connection. Can anyone help, please? This is the first attempt at recording.

Hi and welcome,

Make sure the Monitor (speaker button) is disabled while playback.


I’ve recently found that I can no longer select my soundcard in Audio Device (Outputs). I have no problems with Inputs, and I can get both inputs and outputs working if I use the Generic Low Latency ASIO driver. I recently updated to 9.5 though this hasn’t helped. Any ideas would be really appreciated.

Kind regards,



What kind of Audio Device is it? Do you have the latest driver installed?

What exactly do you mean by “cannot”? Is it greed-out? If you click on it it jumps back to Not Connected? Or any message? Or…?

W10 updates can certainly mess with drivers if this is your o/s? Uninstall and clean install the driver and try again.

Also as Martin suggests, please explain in more detail how you can’t select them or add screenshots to show the problem.
