SX Control Surface Tutorial (pg. 1)
up your VS-2480 to work with CUBASE SX as a control surface.
a tutorial by Andy Wheeler
Note before you start:
This requires that you update your VS-2480's operating system to V2.011
If you have not done so, it is highly recommended as it has new features
and is very stable and bug free. You will need MIDI IN and OUT
connected between your VS and PC. I recommend the RPC-1 card as it
also comes with a little bonus...8 digital audio pipes in and out of
your PC as well. That is the connection that we will use in this
tutorial. If you are going with a USB or similar route, you will be able
to easily convert this tutorial for your needs.
You will also need the
CUBASE CS Driver files:
CuBase SX Generic Remote Support.XLS
Track Template Project.cpr
Extract these files to
the folder that you installed CuBase SX to.
Let's get started. Fire up CUBASE SX. At
this point you can just load the VS-2480 Track Template Project
Create a project from scratch by going to--->File --->New
Select the 24 track Audio
One thing to note here is
to make sure that your recording in CUBASE at the same rate as
your VS2480 project. Otherwise you will run into problems
down the road.
Next up, go to the Devices
pulldown and select MIXER or hit F3 on your keyboard. This will
open the mixer dialog with 24 faders galore.
