I’m using Cubase Artist 9 and I’m trying to route the output of an instrument track to the headphone #2 output of my interface. My goal is to send only this instrument and not the main mix to this output. (For context, the instrument is the E-RM Multiclock audio output.) My interface is a Focusrite Scarlett 18i8, 1st gen.
So far, I’ve gone to VST connections, created a new output bus, and selected the headphone 2 jack in the device port. Then I selected the HP2 bus as the output destination in the instrument track. As I monitor from the headphone 2 jack, I can hear the instrument track only when the main mix output bus is selected, but when I select the headphone 2 bus, I don’t get anything. What’s more, I can still hear the main mix. HP2 L+R are both active in the device setup page.
I’m wondering if I’m missing something in Cubase, or if this is a hardware issue that I should investigate with Focusrite. Thanks for your time, everyone.
