Hey guys, I've been singing/playing guitar for ages but only recently got into the recording side of things.

So I have my Shure SM57 (recording from my guitar cab) plugged into the XLR input in my Yamaha Audiogram 3. I have Cubase 5.1 open but I can't seem to get it recording anything, I'm not sure if the problem is the Cubase set-up or the audiogram's set-up. I know its not the microphone or cable because it works fine through my 15watt practice amp.

Any suggestions on what I should try or do you need more details? Also, does anyone have any recommendations on some legit headphones for mixing etc (i only have about $200AUD to spend)? I know its better to have monitor speakers but my parents won't accept much noise Neutral.

The Juke

I don't know anything about Cubase but the bargain in audiophile sounding headphones is a pair of AudioTechnica ATH AD700's. You can generally find them for around $100.
Mixing with headphones isn't the ideal by the way but if you have to for various reasons you want a pair that are nice and flat.
The AD700's are.
In fact, they compare very well to my Sennheiser 600's which cost a good bit more and are generally considered reference quality.

Juke, I'm not the man to speak to for Cubase advice, but if you take yourself across to the Steinberg Products forum here at RP you may find some people who can answer Cubase-specific questions.

If you can't get Cubase to record anything, my guess is that:
a) You haven't assigned an input from the Audiogram
b) You haven't armed the track in Cubase for recording

I don't have Cubase, but I know that before it will record a signal, it has to know where the signal's coming from - in your case, that's the Audiogram. So, in Cubase, how do you set up track inputs?

Thanks guys, I got it working. I needed the Yamaha driver to recognise the USB inputs. Cheers for the quick responses Smile

Just wanted to say a big thank you for developing this beard!

This is something ive been looking for such a long time.

Great Job!


Benjamin, I've had the beard since I was in my 20s although I did shave it off when I was in my 30s

Somehow, I don't think you're really that interested in beards but just want to spam this forum.

And what does that have in connection with my beard? Are you a spammer, too?
