Firstly, some setup information:
I have recently bought a UR22mkII sound card for my home studio. I got a microphone connected to Input 1 on the sound card. I got headphones connected to the “phones” jack. My sound card is connected via USB to my computer. I am able to use both microphone and headphones on my PC via my sound card.
I got a stationary computer with good specs, so that shouldn’t be a problem.
I am new to working with both recording and DAWs, so if you could, please explain thoroughly in your answers.
Problems I have:
Under studio > Audio Connections > Inputs, I can’t find any inputs, doesn’t seem like “Cubase LE AI Elements 10” finds/recognizes my recording equipment. In Studio Setup > Remote Devices, I am able to select Steinberg UR22mkII for MIDI input and output, but that’s the only place i can find my sound card at all. Under VST Audio System, the ASIO driver is set to Generic Low Latency ASIO Driver (Not sure if that’s relevant information because I’m not exactly sure what it is, but added just in case).
If I try to start a new project, a window pops up, “Missing Ports”, where it says both microphone and speakers are unmapped. I am able to select “Realtek Digital Output” for Speakers (I don’t even know if that’s the right option because I’ve got a Sennheiser headset, connected to the sound card. It is the only option apart from “Not connected”). However, I am unable to choose anything else than “Not connected” on Microphone.
If I continue, with unmapped ports (“Not Connected” option selected), I get a project file, with some tracks (the one I chose). In this case, piano and vocals. In the Inspection section on the Vocals track, I am able to select Mono In 1 in the Input Routing, which should be the line my mic is connected in. In Output Routing I am able to select stereo out, links or rechts under stereo out, or no bus; but nothing I recognize (like I recognized “Mono in 1” selection).
On the piano track however, I am able to select Steinberg “UR22mkII -1” in the Input Routing. In the Output Routing I can select different VST instruments. I can try to record, but only the vocals get something (Audio wave thing - except there’s no wave or anything that plays back to me when I try to play it). The piano track doesn’t get any selectable/editable audio wave thing at all.
I want to use Cubase to record, edit and produce songs.
Any answers/responds are appreciated. Thanks.
