Chapter 3.  Getting Started  >  Setting Up Your Peripherals

Setting Up Your Peripherals

Before you can do anything in Cubase, you must make sure that your software is properly installed on your system, that you have a stable operating system, and that the latest drivers for all your peripherals are installed, including peripherals you think are not related, like video card and network card drivers. If you find that your operating system crashes often for no apparent reason, reinstalling it might be a good idea. This may save you from experiencing problems later on. In a perfect world, this would be done automatically. But because there are probably as many systems out there as there are Cubase users, you will need to run some little tests to allow the software to establish what is the best configuration for its optimal performance. You must then tweak this a bit further before you can establish what is the best configuration for your optimal performance.

The first thing you will want to set up is how Cubase communicates with the operating system, the MIDI device, and the sound card’s driver. Because Cubase uses both MIDI and digital audio, you will need to set up both drivers properly.
