Well, I've got Cubase LE4, and when I connected my sound card, Audio Kontrol 1, I was able to get sounds recording into the computer. However, the price I paid was that the output would flow through my sound card, then to the output port in the sound card so that that I can connect headphones and/or speakers.
This is not what I wanted. Is there some way that I can get my input from the sound card, but the output to the computer speakers, like through the computer?
Before I connected my card, Cubase treated my computer like it's host, so that all input and outputs were going through my computer sound card (which at the moment is not really connected, or rather in a bad condition). Then, when i connected the card, Cubase started treating it as the new host, and all input/output connections went straight through the card instead. Then I had to find myself a headphone and connect it to the sound card to hear the sounds I was recording. It's probably best, but it gets annoying at times. I am able of making a lot of sound, so I will use that opportunity to calm my ears (iPod headphones are starting to hurt my ears when recording/working on my music 24/7)
How do I separate the input and output connections to sound card and computer instead of having the sound card to completely dominate?
