I’m brand new to Cubase and picked up Cubase 6 a few days ago…my sincerest apologies if these questions have been asked 1,000,000,000 times before.
When I turn on the metronome feature from the Transport panel I don’t hear any clicks. Also, I can’t hear any VST effects when I play into the software; I only hear them on playback. My steps are:
- Project > Add Track > Audio > I select Mono and click Add Track
- Within the track I select Edit Channel Settings to bring up the VST Audio Channel Settings window
- Under Inserts on the left I click the triangle (Select Effect Type 1) and select my special effects
- At this point I’d love to be able to hear the different effect sounds as I strum the guitar before I record but cannot; I just hear the clean sound of my guitar
I’ve turned off Direct Monitoring in Devices>Device Set Up as I’ve read that this can help but it makes no difference.
I’m going straight from my guitar to my M-Audio Fast Track Ultra 8R to my laptop with 2 powered monitors attached to the Fast Track device.
I’d be very grateful for any advice that any of you might have…thank you!
