New member to the forums here but I've been lurking a bit and am already learning a lot. I'm sort of new to this and it seems like this forum is made up of people who definitely know what they're doing so just let me know if I'm out of place. I'm using cubase 5 and am noticing some weird trends. When the parts that I've recorded through a a presonus firestudio mobile and some VST plugins are playing the volume changes by itself. If I try to change it manually before I even start the song they will just snap back to whatever setting they were on. The same happens if I try to pan the sound from left to right. I really hope this isn't something really simple that I've screwed up but I appreciate any light you guys can shed on this. It's driving me crazy. Edit: One thing I noticed, if I'm listening to a section of something I've recorded, and click the volume around while it's playing and stop a go back to relisten to the part that I just heard, the volume will fluctuate according to how I clicked while listening the first time. Sorry if that's an awful description, it's pretty tough to describe haha.
