[UPDATE - solved! See my post below for more information]
I just bought a new UR12 today, and have installed the latest drivers on my Macbook (running Sierra) and the latest firmware on the UR12.
I am trying to connect my guitar to the Mac (I have the guitar lead plugged into the HI-Z and the UR12 connected directly to the Mac by USB) and use Logic Pro to record, but nothing seems to work as expected. I have the direct monitor switched off on the UR12, and audio monitoring switched on in Logic. If I set the input to Steinberg UR12 and the output to built-in/headphone, I can hear nothing, and nothing is recorded when I hit record. If I set both input and output to Steinberg UR12, I have the same problem. The only way I have been able hear anything or record anything is by selecting “Enable Loopback” in the USB driver control panel, and then I get constant high-pitched feedback.
Output and Input 2 are both turned up on the UR12, +48V and direct monitor are both switched off. I have tried the same things in Garage Band, so the problem doesn’t seem to be specific to Logic.
So my questions are:
- Should input: UR12, output: headphones, enable me to both hear and record in Logic?
- Why is no sound input detected in Logic even when both input and output are set to UR12?
Thanks for any help in advance!
