Could someone please help me figure this out? I run Cubase 5 full retail version on a Dell XPS 630 with a Tascam FW-1884 interface. I have used this setup for 2 years without a problem and I just installed a new harddrive. When I try to record, any insert effects that I setup are not being used when tracking. However when I play the recorded track back the effect is then on the track. For instance when using my amp simulator pgm all I hear through the monitors when tracking is just the plain direct guitar, but when i play the track back it has the chosen amp and effects playing on it. This is the same with any insert effect or plugin. It's like the signal bypasses the inserts on the way in but will play back when I turn the direct monitoring off. I have never had this problem before and cannot figure it out. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!
