I am using Cubase LE5, Windows 8 OS, Alesis iO2 Express mixer.
I have been able to use the Alesis somewhat successfully with free recording software Audacity, but I have had no luck whatsoever with Cubase. I have an external mike plugged in to the mic LIne with switch set to mike line. When I play my guitar, there is no wave form showing up. It’s like the Cubase isn’t hearing anything or picking up any signals. What am I doing wrong.
I have my computer set to Recording: isO and Playback High Definition Speakers (the speakers connected to my computer)
On the Cubase program, when I open up a new project, it is showing ASIO Full Duplex on both output and input. How do I change the output to reflect my cmputer speakers. That is how I have been setting things up on the Audecity freeware and it’s working fine.
I am also having to turn the gain up all the way to get the Alesis to pick up my guitar through the mike.
Could someone please send me a list of simple step by step processes to start a new project in Cubase? Thanks.
