I can’t get playback to work properly in Cubase Essential 5. I believe that I have the busses set up properly.
For audio tracks, I can see audio activity in the transport bar, but not in the track.or channel fader.
Playback is possible if I record a midi track using my keyboard, but only when the keyboard is on. To me this means that the MIDI info is being recorded in Cubase, sent back to the keyboard, and then routed to the soundcard from the keyboard rather than from Cubase.
I also can’t hear any sound while recording a midi track using the Prologue synth and my hardware synth as a midi controller. I can play back the sounds after they are recorded though.
I’m using an M-Audio Fast Track Pro for my sound card.
