Um, I am stumped (can't record MIDI)

Postby twilightsong » Fri Mar 15, 2013 3:00 am

Oh gawd, this is probably an obvious one, like "Set your markers" but I am unable to record any MIDI data. The track(s) is armed, the Input and Outputs are set correctly...I hit "RECORD" and as I play my controller I can hear the VSTi playing back, and a new MIDI Part is created, but there isn't any note or controller data contained therein. STUMPED :evil:

Im having a similar problem right now. I just recorded a Woodwind part. Then continued on to record a Brass part, but although I get sound, and the record button is armed, nothing records when I hit record and play along to it. I dont even get a midi region.

Like thinkingcap said... preferences > MIDI > filter
With Note Expression (VST3.5), individual notes contain their own set of controller data when played polyphonically.

Thanks, I figured it out. It was a, like most cases, an error on my part to due ignorance. Im new to Cubase and some how accidentally set my punch-out button. :oops:

No need to feel embarrassment, mate. We're all beginners at some point. :)
