Tascam US 144 + Cubase

Hi there, I posted a while ago about setting up the Tascam 144 to a Roland TD8 drum kit, I have got it working to the extent I can hear sound coming thru the Tascam via headphones and see that the signals are there from the signal lights on the Tascam itself.

I can also see that when I play in Cubase the volume levels go up and down to the far right of the record/play tab. However when I press record I just get nothing.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Have you armed a track for recording? A stereo track should be set to 'receive' the recorded signal when you press record.

Hi again, yeah my last post was about trying to get the Tascam to work with Cubase, I found the original post actually it was:

"Just to continue this post, I recently bought a Tascam US-144 too; I have tried to connect it to my Roland TD-8 and then from the Tascam to a laptop with Cubase LE4; I'm having no luck however.

I'm fairly certain the connections are correct ... R/L Outputs of Roland TD-8 to R/L Line In on the Tascam with Mic/Line selected...

I've read the manual and the Cubase setup is a bit confusing, it talks about setting up the Input/Output Bus in VST Connections but I havent a clue what it really means and I can only see the Input/Output as being the Tascam 144 anyway as there are no other options.

Thanks for any help."

If that helps, but as you can see I've progressed a bit further now lol, I've got it all working it seems its just I cant record.

PS. Where would I set the stereo track to receive? Thanks again.

i do rememeber now, im pretty sure i suggested checking the vst connections etc.
what you might wanna try and do is, try and record something else, like a guitar, vocals or something just to test and see if it could just be a drum thingy happening here.

may have something to do with the drum mapping or something.
the Roland would be coming thru to cubase as midi would it?

so maybe the drum map in cubase isnt setup or receiving data.
i would think you'd still get the level from the Roland coming into cubase etc. but its not getting to the drum map to give you the drum hits.

So you say you can hear it?
this is where im not sure if you should be able to hear the audio but not be able to record it coz it records midi.

i could be way off, but it makes sense to me.
but this is "me" we're talking bout here. Ha Ha ha.
someone here will know.
