Cubase AI 5, synth white noise...

Hey, I recently purchased the Steinberg CI2 Interface that comes with Cubase AI5. I mainly got it to record guitar tracks onto my computer, but I’d like to use its synth plug-ins and everything too…The problem is, when I try to use the synths, I hear some (really annoying) white noise every few seconds. Does anyone know what this is and how I can make it go away?

Many thanks,


What synths? all of them? What system? O/S? are you using any demos? what sound card?

He said the CI2, but I don’t think it’s possible to connect synths through it without some kind of mixer.

So I guess you’d better explain how the synths are connected.

Oh yeah, CI2 :mrgreen:

Hey, sorry, I should’ve been more specific: I’m talking about the built-in synths that came with the software - The noise happens when I enter something in using Toxic III, Poizone, Sytrus, Wasp, etc. I don’t know if they’re demo’s or anything, they’re just the ones that came stock with the package. Any ideas?


None of those come bundled with Cubase!
