Steinberg UR24c and Rode NT1 5th gen issue in Cubase Artist (win 10)


I’ve come across a problem and wonder if there’s an obvious fix I’m missing.

I’ve plugged in my new Rode Nt1 5th gen microphone via usb to use 32bit FP recording, but it seems I have to use its own ASIO drivers. That means I can’t use the UR24c for output as then I can’t select utilise the UR24c’s own ASIO drivers, which seems odd.

Can I set up both my UR24c and Rode NT1 5th - even if it’s just the NT1 for input and the UR24c for output?
Is there some sort of ASIO routing so I can have both ASIO drivers in operation? Or is there a different way to fix this?

Thanks in advance,


Just use the XLR connection into your UR24c. Why do you want to complicate things?

Because I want to try 32-bit float. It’s the feature that made me get the NT1 instead of the Audio-Technica 4040 and I’d like to see if it can fit into my workflow.

Don’t you already have that, though? What are you looking to gain by using the Rode driver?

Thanks for your thoughts and advice, Scab_Pickens. My understanding is that I can only utilise the 32bit FP recording feature of the Rode NT1 via the USB connection and that I need to use the Rode driver to do it. If I don’t have to use the Rode driver to be able to record in 32-bit float, I’d be happy. Just didn’t think it was possible, from Rode’s info.

(edit/ addition) - just rechecked:

Cubase should take care of that for you, unless I’m not understanding things correctly (which has often happened in the past :grinning: ).

After looking a little closer at the info for that mic I must say I’m more confused now than before. I just don’t get it.

Can you still return it?

My choice would be the AT4040 into your interface.

Thanks for the timely feedback … :zzz:

Too late for me to change it - I bought it 6 months ago in the US and had to wait for a friend to bring it over to Malaysia for me.

I’m trying to work out if I can use Asio-4-All drivers to route inputs and outputs separately. If not it’s going to be the painful process of recording using one asio driver for 32 bit FP then changing ASIO in the project to listen to the recording. Hopefully it won’t come to that.

Thanks for your perspectives and help in the matter!
