    I'm using Cubase 2.2 SX and man, I was so thrilled when I was finally able to record in my electric drums (Yamaha DTXpress 2), base and guitar.

    I started with a short test recording in a base track and a couple of guitar tracks (with guitar rig inserts). That worked out fine and I was able to make a mixdown of it to mp3.

    Then I made a complete blues song with an electric drum track (audio, no inserts), base track and a couple of guitar tracks (rythm and solo, guitar rig inserts).
    And when I finally wanted to make a mp3 out of it with mixdown I get the error: An error has occured during mixdown... and it doesn't do it.
    I have tryed with different mixdown settings and extensions (wav) with the same result.

    I started a completely new project, played in the drums, made a mixdown and it was successfull! Then ai played in 2 base tracks and then tryed the mixdown and get the error again!

    I have re-installed the cubase software, didn't help.
    My soundcard is Audiophile 2496, I have recorded by plugging in the drums and other instruments directly into the soundcard as audio (RCA).
    I intend to buy a small mixer... if I'd get this working..
    I have a brand new computer 3500+ 2gb ram, so I don't think the problem is with the hardware capacity?

    I would greatly appreciate some help! I wan't to play and record, It is awesome!! I'd be so happy if I'd find a solution for this :)

    EDIT: I promise to respond how your tips turn out.. if ai get any :wink:
    Darn whole weekend would have been free for recording :?

    And btw. I have set the left and right locators (witch makes the recording field light blue)

    You can set them backwards!

    instead of left - right, they end up Right - Left

    This was the solution!
