Okay, I just got my first midi controller for Cubase 5, and have some questions. I’m in Windows 7, running Cubase 5 64-bit. The midi controller is an older one, M-Audio Keystudio 25, connected via usb… the cable is about six feet long…
First, when I created the controller in Cubase, I couldn’t find one for this keyboard, so I used the GM setup. Is that okay, or do I need to do something different? If so, what?
It works as is, though the latency is a bit much for me. Any way to reduce the latency so the sounds happen when I press the keys… instead of some noticable fraction of a second later? With this lag, I’m not sure how I can add a new part to an existing arrangement.
Finally, I can’t figure out how to define the programmable controls. The keyboard has eight 8 and 8 buttons that are supposed to be programmable, but I can’t figure out how to tell Cubase what each one of them should mean. Any help would be appreciated.
