after spending a whole day troubleshooting my setup; I was able to retrieve an old Alesis USB interface, and finally be able to get some sound out of Cubase.
This is quite ridiculous; since I had to install Asio4all driver; and then have the output sound from the Alesis, while the Soundblaster G5 is the output for the audio on Cubase, and re-route the headphone out from the soundblaster to the alesis second channel. This was the only way to get audio from Cubase.
Now; since this is not practical; I am asking which interfaces and Midi keyboards would be recognized by Cubase? I don’t want to swap cables, switch settings and so on; I just want to plug my midi keyboard, my electric guitar (with Guitar Rig 5) and just use Cubase.
I was looking at the Akai Professional MPK Mini MKII or the Novation Impulse 25 as midi keyboard/pad. and the Steinberg UR22MKII as interface to plug my guitar.
Would this work? At the moment if I use GUitar rig and Cubase at the same time; ASIO4ALL takes basically control of both the Alesis and the Soundblaster, and I can’t hear anything from iTunes, VLC, youtube via browser and so on; so I hope that with more modern interfaces, I do not have to have any problem fighting configurations.
I want to like Cubase and Windows, but I can’t believe that I have 0 problems using an old iMAc from 2010 with this equipment, and I can use everything without any hassle.
