Hi, I’m new to the forum, and I don’t know much about the technical aspects of audio and such. Also, I didn’t exactly know how to search for the problem, so I’m asking here, sorry if this has been answered.
Ok, here goes…
When I try to record with Cubase LE4, I can’t get sound through, using my Alesis iO2 and a SE 1000a Microphone.
I tried to change VST connections, but nothing seem to work, cause there is no sign of sound going through (no blue light in the box measure thing).
I should mention, I managed to get sound through about 1-2 months ago, but put it away.
Also… Been a funny sort of day, thought I had no studio work today, got phoned this morning when I was just out the shower by a band standing about outside my studio waiting for me to arrive!!! left the house in a hurry only to get phoned by my wife after I arrived at the studio to say I’d locked her out!!!
The physical manual is very short. It only mentioned stuff about this cable should be plugged in here, this button does this, etc. Nothing about problems with getting sound through the alesis box.
Uh, it’s so frustrating I had this problem several months back, then one day I picked it up and somehow it just worked, but I put it away, and now this thing won’t work.
As said your setup looks correct, so… are you monitoring from your interface? you will need either headphones or powered monitors plugged into your interface to hear anything when you have the io2 driver selected!
You will not get any sound from the computers speakers!
Also the knob on the front of the interface, is that turned all the way to USB? so you are monitoring via Cubase and not the interface?
You could really do with getting the PDF help files working! maybe try opening them directly from the Steinberg documentation folder ?
Not to sound too stupid, but what is an interface? If interface is the alesis box, then I know that you have to have headphones plugged in, but the problem is that there is no responds from the microphone. I know that there won’t be sound coming from the computers speakers.
The SE 1000a mic is a condenser mic and needs phantom power to be switched on! the little +48 switch on the Alesis.
What lead are you using to connect the mic to the Alesis with? only use an XLR to XLR lead otherwise the mic wont get the “phantom power” from the Alesis and wont work.
I don’t know the file structure for Mac’s but it’ll be in your applications folder and probably called Cubase/documentation. No doubt someone who knows Macs can help out better than I can with that one
the 48+ is turned on and I am using an XLR to XLR lead.
I still can’t find the cubase documentation.
When I try to say something or touch the microphone, the bars light up yellow, on that -20 bar. I just can’t understand why there is no sound…
