I’ve been having trouble trying to set up my DAW to work with the Cubase Control Room for monitoring and studio sends through the MR816x. I would like to have it so I can track people in the studio using the RevX reverb, direct monitoring, and have Studio 1 and Studio 2 routed to analog outs 5/6, 7/8 respectively, while I run monitors A and B out of outputs 1/2, and 3/4. I am then sending these outputs to an analog console which is handling talkback and sending of these signals to headphone amps as well as my speakers. I am testing this by just using Monitors on 1/2 and Studio 1 on 7/8.
Right now with direct monitoring on, clients can hear the monitor sounds I’m sending out of 1/2. They cannot, however, hear anything from the studio sends regardless of what outputs I use. I am sending all channels at full 0db to Studio 1 in control room. I don’t see any levels in the Control Room mixer for any of this with direct monitoring. I have disconnected all VST outputs so all signals are only going to the Control Room.
If I turn direct monitoring off, I lose the RevX reverb, but can see levels on the Control Room Mixer’s monitor and studio 1 channels. However, the client and myself still do NOT hear anything from Studio 1, regardless of how it’s routed in software and back in the analog world.
Every tutorial or manual just talks about how great this setup is and how simple it is, yet it just seems like a giant boat of complication to me…what am I doing wrong? I can provide additional information if needed.
Thanks ahead of time!
