Question about Steinberg Cubase SX3
Alright, so i've familiarized myself to my Cubase SX enough to have decided to expand on my 'lil home studio. I'm using PreSonus Firebox to connect my instruments to Cubase SX through the instrument ports at the front. http://www.zzounds.com/item--PRSFIREBOX . For the life of me, when Midi comes to play, I get lost in all the technical mumbo that comes with the instruction manual, which then turns into a migraine by the end of it.
I've read 3 different manuals, one to my keyboard, one to Cubase, and the one to the Firebox, to which none gives me a direct answer as to how I get the keyboard to play as a keyboard, and not a vst in Cubase. Oh yeh, the lovely pics show you how to plug it in, but they don't tell you precisely what configuarations needs to be done to make it all work in perfect harmony.
At the back end of my PreSonus, there is a midi in and a midi out. I have the keyboard going midi out into the PreSonus midi in. I open my Cubase SX and no sound, no nothing. Where must I go into the Cubase to configure the settings to make this keyboard work in it? I could really use a step by step here, something similar to Cubase SX for dummies shall we say, lol.
Sounds like you may have a MIDI loop. If the Midi I/O Meters on the transport bar ar all the way up then that's the case. Uncheck the speaker Icon next to the track when you are playing.
It's also usually a good idea to have each track set to have it's midi input be just your controller, not "All MIDI Inputs" which it is by default.
Finally, make sure your instrument has "Local Off" configured under its MIDI settings. This prevents it triggering its internal sounds directly and forces everything to go through the sequencer.
If my advice was helpful pleae vote for me!

this is because of the lantency of your sound card and your driver settings.
with 2 seconds,
that sounds like you're using a MME driver for your card.
try to change the driver to ASIO (if possible),
if not, change it to directX
you can do that that way:
- Open up Devices > Device Setup > VST Multitrack
- Drop-down the ASIO Driver settings on the right side of the screen
