Yamaha MG16XU on Mac with Cubase AI

Unread post by jekillen » Wed Jul 10, 2019 6:51 am

Hello;
I recently purchase a Yamaha MG16XU that came with Cubase AI SE software.
I installed it and activated it on Mac High Sierra.
I created a testing file in Cubase so I could get acustomed to the
setup and functions.
I recorded to MIDI instrument tracks and one Audio track.
Yesterday I have had everything all working. The audio out
went to the Yamaha mixer and on to amp and speakers.
Cubase was listing the Yamaha mixer in studio i/o options.
Tonight that is not the case. I cannot get the Yamaha mixer to
show up in Cubase for play back even though the Mac sound prefs
have it active, the audio/Midi setup app has it selected and I can
speak into a mic connected to the yamaha and hear the result out
from it.
Has anyone had this problem with Cubase on Mac and have they
been able to reach a resolution?
I have contacted Steinberg and they have not repsonded. I cannot
log into the account I created with them since last time I logged in
and sent a support query. To the support query they sent an auto
response saying I contacted the German site and should contact the
US site. Today I found I was unable to log in to my account making
sure that I used the correct login creds.
Thanks for time, attention, knowledge and guidance

Hi jekillen, welcome to the forums :)

Unfortunately the experience you are having is not an uncommon one. It is one of the main reasons I do not use Cubase. The amount of time I spent faffing around with it is something I will never get back and I am talking weeks of emails going back and forth between me and Steinberg with them continually asking me to perform the same tasks on my Mac. I was passed from one person to another and had to explain the whole thing again...and again...and again! :/:

Eventually I just gave up and moved to Logic. Installed, worked, job done!

I would recommend anyone who is going through this nonsense with Steinberg just dump it and go with something that works. We should be spending our time making music not struggling just to get the software running!

Thank you for your reply, Saul;
I do have an older version of Logic. I will probably move to
a newer version. But I don't know that it will load video and
work with the sound track.
