Well, I should get sound - I’ve checked everything that I know about. VST Connections look correct. The input track source and send look good. Device setup looks fine.
Symptoms: Normally I can hear (monitor) the inputs using my headphones plugged into the UR44 (usually I monitor some combination of inputs 1, 2, 3 and 4). But, now I hear nothing. However, playback of recorded material comes though just fine. Recording also works I do press that little speaker icon when switching between monitoring the inputs and playing back recorded material.
The weird thing was this. Earlier this evening I was having this weird issue with reverb coming through WHILE monitoring the inputs (this was before I lost audio). I spent hours staring at Cubase AI then concluded the reverb was coming from inside the UR44 unit. Then I decided to power cycle the UR44. At first I thought that worked because I didn’t hear the reverb any longer - but I also didn’t hear audio (again there is no audio to the headphones only when monitoring the inputs - and I depress that little speaker icon to hear the inputs). Since then I have power cycled and restarted Cubase - but no luck. I just don’t have any audio when monitoring - yet all the connections look fine.
I feel like giving up now.
