I’m a total and utter NOOB with Cubase so be gentle with me!
I’ve got a legit. copy of Cubase 5 which I had awhile but only just seriously got into using, because I downloaded the awesome free synth Dexed which my usual music writing software couldn’t handle. I’ve got as far as loading the synth, loading the sounds and playing the sounds. I’ve even discovered where the automation line IS - but it’s greyed out. And I’ve tried everything in sight and it’s STAYING greyed out. Which means I can’t control Dexed in Cubase either.
Now I’ve no idea if this is a Dexed problem or a Cubase problem or what, but I’m happy to try everything anyone suggests. I’ve tried the M1 Emulator in Cubase 5 and the automation line stays greyed out there too. I’ve tried clicking on all the R’s for READ I can find and some come on and some don’t but it doesn’t seem to make any difference, still can’t automate.
Sorry I’m vague. Can hear all the sounds fine, just can’t automate them in any way. Will try anything anyone suggests cos I’m 100% flat outta ideas. I’m using Windows XP SP3 (no I’m not downloading Windows 10!) with a Foxpro 1 Motherboard and Realtec High Definition Audio Codec, no separate soundcard, the sound seems great without spending the extra dough (and works fine with Quick Score Elite Level 3 which is what I’ve always used up till now, it’s just the Dexed people haven’t put any CC changes in the program (WHY!!!)) Can’t use flamin’ Gladiator, or Nexus, or even Kontakt for the same reason - no CC changes - so i’d REALLY love to get Cubase working…
