Supposed to be easy right?
Tried it for the first time with a buddy of mine. I’m in Texas, He’s in NY. I have Cubase Pro 8… First off, he couldn’t install VST Connect 4.0… So that’s red flag number one… So I had him download and install version 3.0.
So that worked, then I gave him my ID and we linked up… He has satellite and I have cable, Huge delay in video and the sync lights were blinking all over the place never staying a steady green.
When I click settings, his audio driver was set to DirectX. He has a Presonus Audiobox as his interface, so I tried to switch the driver to that… The first time I tried, it loaded the driver, but had insane static on my end peaking out all the meters…
So out of Panic I just closed everything. Then rebooted and we tried again… This time however, Each time I tried to load the audiobox driver, it would automatically switch it back to either DirectX or Generic Low Latency ASIO. He even tried on his end to switch the driver but it kept doing the same thing.
We managed to finally get talkback between us but very noisey and static on the low latency driver… Not so much on the directx driver but the delay was like 5 seconds or more…
So complete fail. Any suggestions? Ideas?
