Noob needs quick help!!

I just bought the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 to use on Cubase 8. I registered it, downloaded it and all that and it comes up in Cubase. Problem is it makes no sound when I plug a guitar or mic into it. I think my problem is when I go to Device Setup then VST Audio System I can select Focusrite USB ASIO except when I click Focusrite USB 2.0 Audio Driver it says error: not detected…

I have it activated in my sound control and everything. Anyone know how to fix this??

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A thought…
Do you have the Scarlett plugged into a USB3 port? Have you tried a different USB port?

Hi Zlatan11,

It might be worth checking in Control panel/Device manager/Sound video and game controllers and see if your driver is listed there or if there is a yellow warning sign!

If there is a warning sign pick up the latest driver here for your product and install it.

You didn’t mention whether you have the new second generation or first generation product so make sure you download the correct driver for your product!

I hope this helps?

Kind regards

Figured it out.

Thanks for the help guys!

What was the issue? interested, as it happens to me as well, I just got used to working with the ASIO usb driver…

not really sure to be honest. i think it was more of me having to figure out the focusrite iteslf than actually cubase. There’s so much i dont know about cubase, id love to take a class or have someone show me the ins and outs of the program
