Please help newbie with Cubase setup.
Can you help me to get Cubase to just plain record the keyboard plugged in?
I have Cubase LE 5 which shipped with the mixer I have, running on Windows 7.
The mixer that I have is an Alesis MultiMix 8 USB 2.0
Cubase is registered and licensed and AOK-- (which BTW the licensing was actually very easy for me).
Cubase does recognize the MultiMix, and I can see it Devices, Device Setup, and that seems fine.
I select new project and choose the preset for the “4 stereo and 8 mono” project type.
I have just 1 instrument plugged in to the Alesis, a keyboard, a single 1/4 cable carrying a mono signal.
When I play the keyboard, I get a bouncing green indicator that shows the signal is being received by Cubase, it seems.
So, to my mind, if I press Transport Record, whatever I play on the keyboard should be recorded.
But the result comes out blank.
What am I doing wrong?
(I have been reading the Getting Started manual for Cubase, but no luck.)
I just want a dirt-simple, single-track, recording of what I am playing to disk.
I am sure this information is somewhere, but I just cannot get it.
Can you help?
