Id venture to say that the prefs are screwed up for the VST Connections.
- Open up your MR console and see if your inputs and outputs are there. It wouldn’t hurt to re-install the MR software
- Open up Cubase, make sure the MR is selected as the ASIO Driver, even if it is select it anyway and select switch.
- Click on Yamaha Sternberg FW then on the right click the RESET button underneath the Direct Monitoring window which will reset all the ports and make them visible. You should see all the available ports now. Those ports should reflect what you have setup in the MR Consoles setup screen as to ADAT, SPDIF etc. Then hit the reset button at the bottom then OK. IF your inputs are not showing now then you have pref file issue.
- IF its a prefs issue do the following.:
Removing the preferences of the sequencer
When uninstalling Cubase or Nuendo, preferences won´t be removed automatically. This is because the preferences contain your personal settings such like key commands, device maps, presets for VST plugins etc. The uninstaller only removes files which have been installed by it.
If you want to remove preferences please do this:
Mac OS X
Exit Cubase resp. Nuendo.
Open the Finder and go to the folder: Users/Your Username/Library/Preferences/Your Cubase resp. Nuendo version
Create a new empty folder on your desktop
Select all files and folders from the preferences folder and move them into the empty folder on the desktop.
The preferences folder needs to be empty after that.
Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion)
*The Library folder for the main user account is not visible anymore on Lion, that means that users will not find it and will not be able to delete the preferences.
To access that folder you need to go to the menu “Go”, then hold down the ALT key on your computer keyboard and click on the appearing “Library” entry.
Then you will be able to access the Library and delete the preferences.
Safe Start Mode - Resetting The Cubase Preferences
Issues in Cubase/Nuendo can be related to particular preferences settings. Since Cubase 7/ Nuendo 6 there is a quick troubleshooting method to check whether the problem you experience is related to the preferences settings.
Here is how it works.
Start Cubase/Nuendo and hold down + + (Windows) or + + (Mac OS X) as soon as the start screen appears.
The following screen appears:
Click to zoom image.
For troubleshooting purposes choose the option “Disable program preferences”.
A: If temporarily disabling your preferences solves the problem you now know that the problem is related to preferences. To make the temporary changes of the preferences permanent you can choose “Delete program preferences” the next time you open Cubase/Nuendo and the safe mode dialog.
B: If temporarily disabling your preferences does not solve the problem you now know that the problem is probably not related to the preferences. To load Cubase/Nuendo with your old preferences you can just start Cubase/Nuendo as usual.
If the problem still persists you are advised to go on with the following article to continue troubleshooting the problem:
Note: When you start Cubase/Nuendo with factory settings you will amongst other messages receive the following message:
Click to zoom image.
If you click on “Already Registered” the message will go away.
Also be aware that it is necessary to choose the right ASIO driver for your ASIO device under Devices > Device Setup> VST Audiosystem.
More information about the Cubase/Nuendo basic setup steps can found be under Help > Documentation > Quick Start Guide.
