after hours of frustration trying to solve this with useless tutorials and by clicking blindly all over the Cubase’s control room options, I decided to ask for help.
What I’am trying to achieve? Nothing special. I have Cubase 8.5, an UR44 interface, a microphone, headphones and a singer. The singer is complaining that she cannot hear herself loud enough in the headphones. So here my frustration begins. I want to make her loud only in her headphones, not by turning up the input fader.
I know the Control room is the right place to do this. But I can’t manage to make it work. The problem is I don’t understand how big studios work - I have no idea what cues are, I have no idea why I should need monitors set up for recoding without them, I have no idea why I need to deactivate my stereo output to make control room work, all I know is that my singer needs a maximized signal in her headphones so we can make some damn music!
Could someone please provide a step by step guide on how to do this? Thank you in advance!
