Hey everybody my name is Matt and I’m speaking
to you on behalf of Expert Village. If you installed it properly and if you open up cubase
you would see a window that looks similar to this, yours may look a little bit different
depending on what version your using. I’m using cubase sx version 3. Before you get
started using cubase you are going to have to set up some inputs and outputs. If you
go up to devices, go down to device set up you get the window that looks like this. I’m
going to go over these rather quickly because there is a lot of different settings and yours
may differ depending on your set up but if you click on midi. Below here you would see
some options if you click on all midi input to the right I don’t have any midi input set
up right now but it should show all the midi inputs that you have available you can enable
or disable them here. If you click on default midi ports to the right you can click and
select what midi input and output is set up automatically. When you create a track cubase
which we will get into in a little bit and if you click on direct music you can enable
of disable certain midi ports so that if you have a lot of them it is not a huge list that
you have to choose from each time you have to change it in your track. If you come down
to vista audio below this is where you set up all of your audio in your sound card you
can click over here and it will show you a list of drivers you have in your sound card.
You want to make sure that the total latency and output are as small as possible. If you
have anything above 5 milliseconds you are probably going to get a delay in your audio
when you are recording. If you click below on the name of your audio card you can click
the control panel and there is a whole bunch of other different options that you can configure
there. If you click on vst inputs and outputs this is similar to the audio input and outputs
that I was tell you about but with your audio card you can enable and disable all certain
inputs and outputs and like I said a lot of this is going to be depending on your set
up and sound cards and midi inputs and outputs. But let’s go ahead and get started using cubase.
