Your Setup

Getting all of your hardware and software components talking to each other is usually the most difficult and frustrating part of making music with computers. Every setup is different, so every troubleshooting situation is different. If you're having problems, the first place to look is the documentation that came with your hardware, to ensure that you've hooked up all your cables and set all your switches correctly. Then check the system-level setup on your computer. If your audio interface isn't working in Cubase, try just playing back a CD through your interface. If you can't get MIDI input, import a MIDI file into Cubase and try playing it to determine whether you're getting MIDI output. You can also use the tutorial files that come with the application to test these systems.

You'll find a lot more information about selecting inputs and outputs and getting sound and MIDI in and out of Cubase in Chapter 4, “Recording Audio,” and Chapter 5, “Recording MIDI.” And don't forget those Cubase-related Web sites; if you have a question, they may have the specific answer you need. For starters, check out the Steinberg Cubase forum on the Web at http://forum.cubase.net.
