audio in cubase with tascam us428

    Does anyone know if the book, "Audio in Cubase VST quick start guide" would help me? I have a copy of Cubase 5.1, but no manual. I checked the cd and I don't see a manual on there. I'm trying to use it with the Tascam US 428. I'm not having very good luck with the version of cubase that came with the unit. Or should I look into some other kind of software?

    Any thoughts would be helpful. I'm almost ready to sell this thing!!

    Thanks for listening

    You must have a "cracked" version of 5.1 I have the same program and it came with a big owners manual and a PDF on the disc too ...

    I guess it is a cracked version. The guy who sold me the unit on ebay sent it to me. Do you like cubase 5.1? Is it better than the version that comes with the 428?

    As per the ads for Tascam I've seen in the trade rags, they ship with Cubasis VST not Cubase VST which is the slimmed down version. Still, if it is a legit CD-ROM with the Steinberg logo on it, it should have a version of the .pdf manual. Try poking around on the Steinberg website.

    I cant make ANY recordings with 5.1 because I don't have the manual. I don't even know how to enable tracks in it. It is not the same as cubasis.

    never mind I'll figure it out myself

    Maybe this will help:


    I do find VST 5.1 a great program to work with. It does it all for me, including midi sequencing and the virtual instruments. As for the tascam thingy, I don't know. If you want useful advice, you'll have to be a bit more specific on your problems other than 'I'm not having very good luck'. ;)

    Anyway, hope it will work out for ya. Don't give up hope on Cubase, it's the best thing out there so stay with it. Get a legit version though, it is worth the money. It bet you can get a cheapo used version from someone that switched to SX.

    Regards, Rob

    Lonman, I was in the same boat as you. Hopefully you haven't sold your stuff yet -- I'm getting pretty decent results with my setup (CuBase VST Score and a Tascam US428). I was lucky enough to have someone walk me through the process.

    The only proviso is that I use a Macintosh. If you have a Mac, contact me by e-mail and I will GLADLY help you!


    PS: If you want, post something at the Home Recording Forum at the Dude Pit. I know a guy there who uses a PC with Cubase SX and a US428. If I can't help, he probably can.


    PSS: I do have the book you're talking about and if your roadblock is the initial setup, I don't think it will be of much use. That said, however, it's an excellent reference and if you can get it, by all means go ahead. (I was lucky -- I got mine used on eBay for something like $25.)
