    hi,

    i've just bought Cubase 5 and a midi keyboard and everything is well connected: when i open a vst instrument and i hit a key on the keyboard i hear a sound...so everything so far is ok! BUt, my problem is that when i hit a key, i hear the sound 1 second after hitting the key. I want to instantly hear what i'm playing. So, is this a problem with latency? or maybe not? what should i do?

    Yes this is latency. You don't say what soundcard you have, but you need to get hold of the ASIO drivers for it and then adjust the settings for it. In Cubase you need to set your audio buffer settings as well.

    my soundcard is a SB PCI128. Where can i download the drivers? on Creative's website? And then in Cubase, where precisely should i go for adjusting the buffer?

    Thanx for the help!

    They might be useful to you. To adjust your settings in Cubase go to setup> audio setup. You can set how many audio channels you want and the memory per channel and disk buffer sizes there. You'll also need to set the buffer settings for your sound card.
