Pre-rack not showing in my LE AI Elements 9 mixer

I’d like to do some gain-staging, but can’t find the pre-rack at all in the mixer. It’s not in the ‘racks’ drop menu either. Does it even exist in the LE AI version? Thank you!

And if there isn’t the pre-rack to be found at all, can I still access pre-gain somehow?

Well, if it is not there, it probably isn´t there. Anyway, you could look it up in the manual, then tell us…

This feature (and many more) is exclusive to Cubase Elements and higher. You can upgrade here:

You’re currently using either Cubase LE or Cubase AI.

Thank you very much! This was the kind of helpful answer I was looking for.
