Why is this forum so difficult to use?

I have been using Cuebase off and on for about 3 years.

I just got a copy of Cuebase 5 LE with a new Alpha Lexicon mixer.

I am licensed, and I am a registered user.

However, for reasons I do not understand, I cannot post in any forum other than this one, so please forgive me for asking my question here.

I can hear output from midi tracks in Cuebase through the Lexicon monitor, but I cannot hear any output from audio tracks. I have the Alpha ASIO device driver connected in the Device dialog. I have stereo in and out buses connected to the Alpha ASIO in the VST Connections dialog.

I do not see any volume activity from the audio tracks in the mixer, but I can see audio activity from the midi tracks.

If I play audio an file through an audio player on the PC, I can hear it in the Alpha Lexicon monitor.

What I don’t understand is that, at first, I was able to hear audio tracks through the monitor, but not midi. I read somewhere to add an Instrument Track and drag the midi onto that. Well, that worked. I could hear the midi in the monitor, but now I could not hear the audio tracks.


I am running Windows 7 64-bit with NVidia HD sound.
