i just installed cubase le 5 with a lexicon alpha interface. it's recording just fine but i'm not getting any sound when i play it back. the headphones i'm using are working just fine, youtube and itunes and everything are coming through fine. did i miss something in setting up cubase?
If you can hear the instrument while recording but not during playback it could be you have monitoring enabled. If the speaker icon on the track is brown you'll need to click it to disable monitoring and have audio during playback.
Check two things:

-under VST connections, do you have a pair of main outputs enabled with the Lexicon driver?

-in the mixer, is your master bus routed to those same outputs as above?

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?
