    Hello everyone!!! I am definitely a newbe in studio business but I have to record some acoustic project. This is accordion, bass and mandolin. For this project I got Presonus Firepod with Cubase and four condenser mics ( MXL's & Audio Technica). When I conect everything I just stuck with one problem, which is become a main problem for this project - Cubase only wants to read channel 1 and 2, which has preamps on sound card and channels 3-8 just remain quiet in Cubase but I can hear them in my head phones which is conected to sound card. May be I got wrong equipment? Or this is problem with Cubase? Please, if you know how to fix this problem - HELP.
    Thank you in advance.

    it's from the presonus site,,i got a firepod to,,:)

    : Why can I only record 2 inputs at a time in Cubase LE? / Why can I only use 2 outputs in Cubase LE?
    A: You can record 10 simultaneous inputs with the Firepod in Cubase LE. You need to activate the other inputs/outputs in order to use them. Go to the Devices tab, then to Device Setup. Highlight “VST Multitrack”, and select the “PreSonus ASIO” driver and “Internal” clock. Now go back to the Devices tab and go to “VST Inputs”. Expand the window to show all input buses and activate each bus by clicking on the “power button” (the button will turn blue). Now all inputs from the Firepod will be available to choose from for each track. Go back to the Devices tab and go to “VST Outputs” and activate each output bus. Now all physical outputs on the Firepod will be available to choose from as an output for each track in the software. At this point, you should be able to record from any physical input and playback out of any physical output on the Firepod in Cubase LE.

    Or, go to the firepod site and download the template for Cubase, then simply activate each channel and you have separate simultaeous tracks for each firepod channel.....mine workd fine. :)
