Apologies if this is the wrong section to post this question. I've just
bought a Carillon computer (2nd hand) running on Windows XP, Saffire Pro56 interface and
When setting up a new project is there a particular order I
should be doing things? This is what I've tried so far with mixed results!
Power up Saffire Pro 2. Power up PC 3. Load Cubase (Go to 'Device set-up' select
Saffire Pro as ASIO driver etc.) 4. Create new project 5. Set up VST
connections: 1 stereo output / several mono inputs (I haven't set up stereo inputs as I am
mainly recording voice and guitar) 6. Add tracks within Cubase project (Mono In,

no signal going into the recording tracks in Cubase. I'm also not able to hear the Cubase
Click (do I need to set up separate routing into the Saffire Pro for this?). I'm using the
'Zero Latency Monitoring' pre-set in the Saffire Pro 56 which automatically routes DAW 1 +
2 outputs to the Saffire Pro mixer, so I assume there should be a signal coming through
from Cubase - the problem seems to be in the VST input routing, but I'm really not sure
what I'm doing wrong!
