you could maybe try Reaper for a user friendly and easy to use DAW ... and come on it's really cheap so if you like it give these guys some bucks ;)
guitar rig is always a nice choice as far as i can tell ...

might be that you have to switch the channel from recording-mode to playback mode by disabling the "record"-state (propably a red button with each channel)

Does the cubase mixer master channel show any signal when you hit play?

Dont judge Cubase to quickly, only because its difficult to set up, it does not mean it is a bad piece of software. I have been using non-lite Cubase versions for ten years now, and there is still options and things I have not figured out - it just does it all.

Ditto OliVBee on Reaper. I have Sonor4 but am liking reaper better. Had my 24 track Tascam stolen so I bought the Tascam us-1800 rack mount. It came with cubase. I tried it out and that lasted about 2 minutes. Its not intuitive at all. Reaper is a fast install and its not crippled.
