I use Cubase 11 with the UR824.
I began experimenting with outputting recorded audio into an external compressor by using “sends” of the audio from Cubase to the “Mix 2 L/R” outputs of the UR824. The compressor does see the signal, and spits it back on two channels and I can hear them.
However, I cannot get the compressor to “bite” on the signal - even if I crank the input gain to max - this would seem to be an instance of the UR824 output not being strong enough. A regular line-level signal from an external mic pre has no trouble triggering the compressor.
The UR824 manual says each of these audio outs is TRS balanced - and I would assume that means it should be strong enough to trigger a compressor…
Am I missing something?
