I’m quite new to Cubase and I want to do an audio mix down to MP3 of a project that contains a piano MIDI recording driving an external synth. When I try this I get an empty file. I checked the ‘real-time’ record option in the export window and the meters show the expected activity - but no music in the final file. It works fine if I copy the MIDI track to a software instrument track (Kontakt 5).
I’m clearly missing something here. I am not using the external instrument settings - instead I have a set of stereo audio tracks set to monitor my outboard synths. Is this the problem?
