I need help gettin the the project mix to work. Currently I am using this with cubase sx. So far, I have not been able to get the mic to record. I can hear the sound but nothing records. Also, how would I be able to add effects (reverb etc.) to the mic channel while it's recording?

I'll start with the easy one first. Since the unit does not have any aux send/return channel's and does not even have insert points. Your only option would be to put it directly in the input path. But that is not a good idea at all.

Honestly there are very few of us that record things like reverb and such directly to the track anymore. You are much better off recording the track dry and then adding reverb in Cubase. Cubase should have an option to use the pluggin live so the vocalist can hear it while you are recording them.

Now, on the mic not recording. Are you seeing any activity in the Cubase input meters while recording? If not you will need to arm the track for recording and choose an input channel from the project mix.

How exactly are you monitoring your signal?

Thanks for your suggestion. I am now able to record. As for the reverb issue, I figured something out. I know it is not the preferred way, but I still like to record with just a little reverb on the mic. Not a whole lot, just enough to give me a nice sound to work with. Thanks for your help.
