Good evening. I started my Cubase adventure today, so I'm new in the business. I'm using VOX Tonelab ST as a preamp. After I plugged it in and set all properly (at least according to this tutorial:) I can't hear any sounds though I can see sound waves on a track when I try to record something. My computer seems to take Tonelab as headphones as I see on the volume panel. Could anybody explain what the problem can be?
ASIO should be capable of sharing the output port with anything else that needs it.
I'd first check your basic setup, see if it matches this [different interface here, but otherwise ought to match]
First thing - make sure your interface is connected [& powered if it needs it] before booting the computer.
Device Menu > Device Setup...
Device Menu > VST Connections
If everything is OK there, we can investigate further…
Knowing your OS would help too - Mac & Win are different in terms of audio/midi setup.
If you see activity in the equalier/mixer/whatever it is but can't hear sound, it could very well be that your sound card is being used by somethign else that is open. Perhaps an internet window, a media player, a video player, spotify... Get back to me on this as I would like to know the answer to this as well.
