Features
Connect To Your Computer via a Single USB Cable (page 8)
The AUDIOGRAM interface connects to your computer via the supplied USB cable. Stereo audio data is
transferred in both directions—from the interface to the computer, and vice-versa—via the USB connection
(44.1 kHz or 48 kHz sampling frequency).
No Driver Installation Required (page 8)
The AUDIOGRAM system uses the standard drivers included in your computer’s operating system, so
there’s no need to install any extra driver software.
Compression (page 13)
Compression increases the overall level without introducing distortion by compressing excessive peaks in
the signals from microphones and guitars.
48V Phantom Power (page 13)
A PHANTOM switch supplies +48V phantom power to the channel 1 microphone input, so you can use
high-quality phantom-powered condenser microphones for superior recording quality.

GAIN Control
Adjusts the input signal level. To achieve the best balance between S/N ratio and dynamic range, adjust the
level so that the input channel PEAK indicator 9 lights
only occasionally and briefly on the highest input transients.
Controls and Functions
7
COMP Control
Adjusts the amount of compression applied to the channel. As the knob is turned to the right, the interface
automatically raises the compression ratio while adjusting the output gain accordingly. The result is smoother,
more even dynamics because louder signals are attenuated while the overall level is boosted.
NOTE Avoid setting the compression too high, as
the higher average output level that results
may lead to feedback.
8
CAUTION
MONO/STEREO Switch
This switch allows channels 1 and 2 to be used either
as separate mono channels or as a stereo pair. When
set to MONO (
), channels 1 and 2 function as independent mono channels feeding both the L and R STEREO OUT jacks 3. When set to STEREO (
), input
channels 1 and 2 function as a stereo pair: the channel
1 signal feeds the L STEREO OUT jack and the channel 2 signal feeds the R STEREO OUT jack.

menu and then select “Sound” to open the “Sound”
dialog window.

❑ Have you connected or disconnected the USB cable
while Cubase AI is running?
Doing so can sometimes cause the Windows output
level to be reset to its default level. Check and raise
the output level if necessary.
The sound is intermittent or distorted.
❑ Is the PEAK indicator flashing red?
You might have to lower GAIN or LEVEL control levels to avoid distortion.
❑ Are you applying the compressor at an appropriate
level?
You might have to lower COMP control levels.
❑ Are any other applications, device drivers, or USB
devices (scanners, printers, etc.) running at the
same time?
Be sure to quit all applications you are not using.
❑ Are you playing back a large number of audio
tracks?
The number of tracks you can play at the same time
will depend on the performance of the computer you
are using. You may experience intermittent playback
if you exceed your computer’s capabilities.
❑ Are you recording or playing long continuous sections of audio?
The audio data processing capabilities of your computer will depend on a number of factors including
CPU speed and access to external devices.
Don’t change these settings if you are not familiar
with your computer’s operating system.
Check that the file system is set properly, and make
sure that you have a plenty of free memory (more
than 128 megabytes). If the audio files you are
recording or playing are not too large, changing the
virtual memory settings can sometimes improve
audio performance.
In some cases it might be necessary to update your
hard disk controller, device drivers, or BIOS. Refer to
your computer’s support center or support page on
the web for more information.
❑ Try adding memory.
Adding more RAM memory can significantly increase
your computer’s audio performance. Refer to your
computer’s owner’s manual for information on installing and setting up extra memory.
There is a delay when playing a software synthesizer via a MIDI keyboard (latency).
