audio asio driver inactive

I have tried this with 2 interfaces, scarlet and audiobox 96. When I select the asio driver for these, the interface says inactive.
There isn’t a checkmark to activate. How do I get these to work?


Where exactly can you see this, please? Could you attach a screenshot, please?

You have to connect the Harware ports to the cubase busses - explained in the manual!


You also have to use the input/output bus in the project. You don’t have to activate it manually.

Thanks, I figured that out eventually. I think the work flow should be made easier and take you to that spot right on the setup screen.

I think Cubase should not open, until at least the „setting up your system“ part of the manual has been read by the user. Unfortunately itˋs not gonna happen.
