I can't see how this would have anything to do with it.Hippie162 wrote:Maybe it doesn't like the file type (WAVE)?
Assuming you have clean audio in Cubase I would guess that there's something going on between Cubase and what you're hearing.
You need to get down to basics. I really would get a cheap ASIO-enabled audio interface - your life will be much easier for it, at least to avoid all that questionable stuff that seems to be hanging onto the computer's own audio output. Once Cubase can see its own dedicated ASIO device you could be sure you're hearing clean audio. If you aspire to anything even vaguely decent you're going to need an audio interface anyway, so better now than later.
