Unable to hear sound of MX49 through cubase

Unread post by mb1975 » Sat Jun 29, 2019 11:45 pm

I downloaded and installed the Steinberg USB audio/midi driver.

When I create a new midi track in cubase I can see the MX49 is sending something but I cannot hear any sound.

Please could someone summarise how to get the on-board sound from the MX49 into cubase?

Thanks very much.

Hi <mb1975> and welcome to the forums . . . .

I don't use Cubase myself, but installing the driver is only part way there . . .

I would say you need to select the MX49 inside Cubase for midi AND Audio - for it to work.

hope that helps

Well, you need a midi track and a separate audio track. The audio track is set to the audio inputs on your interface device, that you should have connected to the audio outs of the MX49.

Careful you don't double the audio after recording a piece, and playing the midi and the audio track at once again too.
