Did you by any chance connect the controller by USB AFTER firing up Cubase earlier? Because some controllers are never detected if they’re not connected when Cubase starts.
Anyway, I’m glad it’s working. As for tutorials, I have no experience with ‘complete’ resources other than the Cubase manual, which is great but not exactly compelling to read from cover to cover :p.
Steinberg have their own tips n tricks videos on youtube which show many different techniques and uses for various functions, which are great. However, if you’re really new to DAW’s in general these videos are probably a bit more advanced, you’ll want to figure out your basic workflow first.
There are also some basic videos though:

recording midi: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KZVfB15SP8
Plenty other sources do Cubase videos too, what I usually do is search for videos on a specific topic. There are places that do complete Cubase tutorials, but these are usually paid for and I have very little experience with them. I’ve watched some point blank videos in the past which are excellent, but it looks like they stopped doing them so they may only be available for slightly older Cubase versions. I suggest you search through these forums, there are some other people who asked the same question and there are some people who can offer better advice than me
In any case, keep in mind most tutorials will be on Cubase pro versions, so some features they mention will not be available in your LE version.
I hope that helps. I applaud your attitude of figuring stuff out yourself, that’ll get you places . Don’t be afraid to ask questions if you get stuck though, the collective experience of this userbase can be very vaulable!
