You can select "What You Hear" if that's what you want to record. You
can select other things as well. See what choices you have. (Note
that this is in the soundcard's control utility, not in Cubase).
There's another possibility - that the card shows in Cubase as two
separate input devices, Soundblaster Analogue and Soundblaster SPDIF.
You'd have to choose the right one when defining an input in Cubase.
You know how to do that?
One of those approaches will work, assuming your card isn't broken.
And it doesn't sound as if it is - the digital signal is getting in
and being turned into analogue for the monitor output, it's just
Cubase that can't "hear" it.
I agree, Soundblasters aren't great. But yours will do this simple
job OK. The trouble is, people who know enough to troubleshoot your
problem aren't likely to be Soundblaster owners :-)
