What I think is going on is you're listening to both the input signal and the recorded signal simultaneously. The recorded signal has a slight delay which causes the phase issues you're hearing.

In that case you have 2 options: either use direct monitoring when recording and live with the fact that it's mono, or lower your buffersize and monitor through Cubase and live with the delay (which is unnoticeable if your DAW can run at the lowest buffersize.)
Strophoid wrote:Totally depends on how sensitive you are to a delay really. I can personally play any instrument just fine at the lowest buffersize which gives a roundtrip of ~4ms on my system, and if I'm forced to higher buffer sizes I monitor through my analog desk which is even faster than direct monitoring . If your rig can't achieve low latency then I would personally always prefer mono monitoring. It's just for when doing the recording anyway, as long as you can clearly hear what you're playing it's not a big deal.
I don't know what is most common, I imagine many interfaces do offer stereo direct monitoring but I clearly don't know much about that as I assumed the UR22 did as well . If you're not relying on software fx during monitoring I think the best option is analog monitoring like I do on my mixer, but that's not really an option for you without another investment. I'd say try both and see which you prefer!
