A few thoughts/suggestions for you...
- You really should list what your computer OS is and what version of Cubase you are running.
- Connect your keyboard to your computer. Turn it on. If on a windows PC you should hear or see something that shows that the computer automatically installed a driver for it and it is ready for use.
- Start Cubase
- Set your keyboard to "Local Off". See page 26 in the op manual (link provided) for the procedure to do this.
- Add an "Instrument Track" to your project.
- In the inspector section of your instrument track, click on the arrow to the left of the track name. It will drop down. Choose "All midi inputs" for the input routing field, and assign a VST Instrument (like Halion Sonic SE) in the instrument field.
- Still in the inspector just below and to the right of the instrument field, click on the edit instrument button. This will bring up the Halion Sonic SE edit screen. Choose a sound from what is available.
- Now click on the track "Record Enable" and "Monitor" buttons.
- Play your keyboard and hear the lovely sounds. Hit the record button and record something.
- Disable the track "Record Enable" and "Monitor" functions to hear your recording (this may not be required depending on what CB version you have).
Hope I didn't miss any steps. Have fun.
If you connected the cable properly (again, see the op manual) this should work. No drivers to install manually. Windows should do this automatically.
