Hi all, just getting started with the Cakewalk experience, having a little difficulty, hopefully someone can help me.....!
I have a Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 interface, inputs and outputs are all working through the computer, guitar pick up, mic, head phones.
New track is opened, focusrite device identified as input and output driver in the menu for devices. "Record Enable" and "Input Monitoring" set, track is "Created". Double check after clicking "Create" and settings correct. Note that the input drop down menu indicates NONE, and does not give any options, though as noted the Focusrite device is identified in the other menus.
When not Armed: Track record button indicates "OFF". Main Record button is white with a red dot, indicates Record (Comping) (R). Stop button is blacked out, and remains this way. The other control buttons for Play, Pause, Fast Forward, Rewind, are white with a black icon centered on the button.
When Armed: Track record button indicates "ON". Click on the Main Record button which remains white with a red dot and does not light up red, indicates Record (Comping) (R). Stop button is blacked out, and remains this way. When I push the space bar to start recording, the tracks immediately disarm. When I re-set to try again, and push the start button instead of the space bar, the tracks immediately disarm.
Is there a setting somewhere that I have missed? I don't believe the STOP button should always be blacked out, and I believe the Main Record button should not remain white, and the indicated message should change.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
