So I recently purchased a Steinberg UR22, and have been trying to get it working for the past few days. After problems with the inputs and outputs, I have managed to solve a few of the problems I was having, but not all of them.
The main problem is with the input. This happens on all recording software I have tried; Cubase AI, Reaper and Audacity as well. After setting input as mono right, I get the volume from the guitar input, but it is very choppy. The audio stops every few seconds before starting again. This also happens when trying to record, except the recording has chunks of the audio missing, making a skipping effect. This obviously makes recording impossible. Is this problem caused by my laptop’s processing power? I have an AMD quad-core processor, and plenty of RAM and HDD space, running Windows 8.1 with everything updated. I would have thought I would have been okay, but maybe not? When I set the UR22 as my main computer output, the same problem occurs. When getting output straight from the headphone output, the dry guitar signal is totally fine, so the problem must lie within my laptop I believe. Any ideas?
My other issue is the output. No matter what I set it to, I only get audio from the left side of my headphones. If I have headphones plugged into either the 1/L output or the 2/R output, set as both stereo or mono, I only get audio in the left ear. I assume this wouldn’t be an issue if I had stereo speakers with one plugged into each output, but I don’t have that option, and often use headphones. Is a stereo output possible with headphones?
Sorry for writing so much. If anyone could provide any help at all, it would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
