Hi, can anyone shed some light on a problem? I am a complete beginner in music recording, but even my more knowledgable housemates are stuck on this one.
I have just bought the scarlett 18i8 to use on Cubase elements 8. I am using a mac, El Capitan.
Everything is registered and set up.
I connected up two condenser mic’s into input 1 and 2, but there is no sound coming out of my headphones. When I go into the cubase ‘Device Set Up’ and select my VST input and output as Scarlett 18i8 there is still no sound. I can see from the signal bar on the computer there is sound coming in, but there is nothing coming out of the headphones.
I have selected Scarlett 18i8 on the Mac sound systems preference.
When I click on VST settings its says that the inputs are activates but the output is deactivated. Is this something that can be resolved on Cubase, or is it a problem on the Mac computer? And then how can I activate (resolve) it?
Can I please ask whoever is great enough to take the time to respond to my query to break this down as simply as possible for me, as I am not that familiar with all the lingo, system names and devises.
Thank you so much
