Chapter 1. Installing & Configuring Cuba... > Checking the Mac OS X MIDI Interface

Checking the Mac OS X MIDI Interface

Every MIDI device you use on a Mac needs to be recognized at the system level, so you should check that the operating system sees the hardware before you try to use it in Cubase. To do this, you use the very convenient Mac OS X Audio MIDI Setup utility.

To confirm a working MIDI interface in Mac OS X

1.
Open the Mac OS X Finder and click Applications on the top toolbar.

2.
Double-click the Utilities folder to open it.

3.
Double-click the icon for the Audio MIDI Setup utility (Figure 1.20).

Figure 1.20. The Audio MIDI Setup utility is in the Utilities folder of the OS X Applications folder.


4.
In the Audio MIDI Setup window, click the MIDI Devices tab (Figure 1.21).

Figure 1.21. The MIDI Devices tab shows all installed MIDI interfaces—in this case, a Steinberg MidEx8.


All installed MIDI devices will be visible in this window. If your MIDI interface is not shown here, you need to consult its documentation regarding installation procedures and check the company's Web site to make sure you have the correct driver installed.
