OK, bear with me on this, I’ve been to a client’s studio this morning to set up her new UR44, and it’s mostly very good.
However, when she bought it she was told in the shop that it had built-in reverb that she could use for monitoring - she and some of her clients want this for when vocals are being recorded.
I’ve got the unit all set up and running in Cubase - all the inputs and outputs work OK, and I can select the appropriate Mix (either Mix 1 or Mix 2) for headphone 2.
The hardware panel appears OK in the mixer in Cubase (she’s using 7.5, 64-bit), and I can alter the settings appropriately for the vocal channel - the compressor clearly works as does the EQ; depending on the position of the switch on the right-hand side of the channel it’s audible plus there’s visual feedback on screen.
However, what I can’t get working is the reverb. I -think- I tried everything I could to get it working - the output level is set, and whether I put it onto Mix 1 or Mix 2, I couldn’t hear any reverb. The send on the channel was turned up, but to no avail. I don’t see any visual feedback of signal reaching the reverb, but I’m not sure that there would be any (can’t see anything obvious)
Her setup is relatively simple - speakers are essentially connected to Mix 1 (outputs 1 & 2) and Control room is switched off. If it’s possible to keep it this way she’d like to do so as the CR is needlessly complex for her setup as there’s only really one source or monitoring mix (usually it’s performers singing to backing tracks, or people recording along to sequenced backings)
Any suggestions? I’m not back there until next week, but if it’s possible to get this up and running I’d like to do so as it seems a waste of what is a good feature.
