- Most of the time throughout this up and running course on Cubase we'll be using a Cubase project called Say Yes, and this particular project comprises of all the necessary audio files required to recreate the project. Now, because of the way that my system is set up, in terms of sound card input and output, it's very likely that your system won't be the same, and consequently, it's quite possible that you'll see an error message popping up, stating that the audio inputs and outputs on your system don't match those that we used when creating the project.
If you do see the error message, then you're going to simply have to dismiss it. It's no problem then to tell Cubase where your inputs and outputs are for your sound card. I'll quickly go through the process with you here. When you come up to File and roll down to Open, once you do, navigate to the project files. On my system they're here, in this folder called SAY YES. Once you open it up, you're going to see these folders: Audio, Images, and Track Pictures, but also, very importantly, you'll see that Cubase project file at the bottom, Say Yes.cpr.
Once selected, and then hitting Open, the project takes a few moments to load up. Now, in this case I didn't see any error message pertaining to the audio inputs and outputs, but if you do, simply dismiss the error message, and then come up to Devices, roll down to VST Connections, the shortcut F4, and then now you'll notice in my case the inputs aren't set here. Where it says Not Connected, click on there, and then simply choose your sound card. Once you do, you'll see the main stereo left and right for your device port.
That's the input setup. Click on the outputs tab here, and once more, if your audio device isn't set here, just select it in the same way, and that will set up your device port too. And that's it. Back looking at your Cubase project panel, you'll see the project set up. You might not see the panel on the far right. That depends how your preferences are set. This will be covered during the course.
