Just before I ask my question, can I make an observation about the Help provided from within Cubase. It’s quite…prosaic, isn’t it? If it were an engineering site, it would go…
Search: how do I build a mine?
Mine Building Page
This is where you build your mine.
Here you can set the depth of your mine.
Which is a roundabout way of saying that this forum and YouTube are a lot more help with Cubase than Cubase Help.
Trying to set up my Audio IO, which is a Presonus Audiobox. (I’ve also got an Alesis IO, and the problem I’m about to describe also happens with that, so the issue isn’t the outboard gear).
Every YouTube and webpage tells me that once my IO has been recognised by Windows (and mine has, because Windows told me) it should then appear as an option on Studio SetUp screen shown below. But mine doesn’t, as you can see from the dropdown.
However, Cubase does know about it because it shows up under the Midi section, though I don’t know why.
So again, I must have missed something. And actually, I probably want to use the Alessis anyway, as it has a Midi IN and OUT, which sounds like something that quite soon I’m going to realise I want.
