No sound tutorial video when Cubase is turned on

Post by NightOwl » Thu Dec 06, 2012 8:17 pm

Hello everybody,

I think that this might be an fundamental thing with sequencers but I just updated my Cubase 6.5 up to Cubase 7 and I like to know if someone can tell me why I can't listen to video tutorials and having Cubase turned on. For example, when I open Cubase 7 and choose a video in the Steinberg Hub, a link will take me to that video but No sound.
I know that it wasn't possible on earlier Cubase releases that i knew about so I would appreciate it if someone can tell my why this is and if there is something to about it?

Many thanks in advance! :)

Is your ASIO driver single-client?

Unfortunately that is not the solution because I have the 64bit version installed.

I'm wondering if this is part of the new ASIOGuard and Cubase no longer allows other devices to use the ASIO driver when it's open.

Maybe you're right but what's the purpose of the Steinberg Hub when the tutorial video's can't be played without sound?
That would not be efficient because you have to close Cubase everytime when you want to listen to an video tutorial :?

That stops Cubase's audio when another App wants to access the soundcard, not vice versa.

Using it with Apple 10.8.2 here and a UR28m I am able to launch videos from the hub. I am also able to hear the audio from the videos as well as hear Cubase playback at the same time. This is also consistent when I bring different app windows to the front. I would make sure you are using an ASIO driver as Cubase was designed to work its best with one.
