Thanks for replying, however I am talking about cubase loading even without a project in that it always starts using the lowest possible sample rate that a particular piece of hardware supports.
To add more information, I’ve been able to have my hardware set at a particular rate, which my system (vista 32) can see however the actual sample rate is different, thus when I trigger a system sound it changes to what is supposed to be the actual sample rate which in this case is 96Khz.
When I open cubase, no matter if there is a project or not, it reverts to using 44.1Khz and the only thing that appeared to work was if I unchecked "externally clocked, however then there was no sound.
The only time the system actually does work, is when I reboot eg when windows does it’s thing and loads up at 48Khz.
Could the developers please address this problem if not already in Cubase 6?
