So, I can use the UR44 even when it is not connected to a computer. I just plug in a pair of speakers and use the inputs for mics and keyboard. It’s a good stand-alone feature, especially when recording a band into Cubase; if there is a blue screen or PC plug is pulled out, at least the sound is still going.
But here comes the problem; although Cubase will disable that stand-alone feature, vMix won’t. vMix is a broadcasting software. I hear double voice when I speack on the mic; the voice independent to the driver, and the voice from enabling the track. I have to run the dspMix software and solo the DAW in order for vMix to function like Cubase in terms of disabling/muting channels not created. Now I would have to un-solo the DAW and mute the headphone in vMix in order to hear realtime, but the plug-in effects are not heard.
Is there another way around that? Can I disable the stand-alone feature without having to solo tracks and the DAW as attached. Is it a limitation of vMix?
That’s very broad. Nevertheless, all I had to do is the following:
If I want to hear the effect from the plug-in, I have to unmute the headphone for the mic channel I’m using even if I hear double. I can also mute bus a and hear from the master only. That allows me to “know” how I sound. Once I am satisfied, then I mute the M for that channel and unmute A (bus).
The reason for that is that I am using (as recommended) a virtual sound card VB Cable-A and VB-Cable B (I could also use NDI). My Zoom input is VB Cable-A on bus A and my Zoom Speaker VB-Cable B on bus B, which enables me to create a sound input in vMix from vb_Cable B and assign it M and B.
That’s why I can’t route everything like in Cubase. But I don’t have access to the virtual audio in Cubase unfortunately unless I switch to Low Latency ASIO and enable the virtual Audio input and out put, but then I am not able to access the UR44 channel when I create a channel for my mic.
How can I access a virtual sound card while connected to the ASIO for the UR44? There I can operate within Cubase and vMix… anyway, that’s crazy… I guess that’s why we have VSTs…!
