I’m very frustrated trying to set up Cubase with a USB keyboard. Here are the details:
Oxygen 49 Keyboard / Graphite 25 Keyboard
I plug the keyboard into the fully functioning USB port, and it powers the keyboard.
I launch Cubase, and they Keyboard shows up as a MIDI in option
On the Device Setup list, the keyboard shows as “active” and “visible”
I assign the MIDI in of a track to that MIDI in (or to All Midi)
Monitor is on.
And – nothing. Zero response from the program. No MIDI input on the meter, no notes, no sound.
TWICE I have seen the keyboard control the music, I saw the incoming MIDI signal on the monitor, and I was able to play. I don’t know how I got there or how to get back. I’ve tried new projects, old projects, everything I can think of.
I’ve tried to set up a Generic Remote as well, and when I check “Learn” it does not respond to the keys either. It’s very much as if the computer sees everything about the keyboard except the MIDI signals.
I was originally doing this all with an Oxygen 49 keyboard, but also now with a Graphite 25 to see if that was the problem.
I’m certain I’m missing something very basic, but in all the text and tutorials I see on this, they basically say, “Plug it in, and it works - so here’s the next steps…” But the first step doesn’t work for me.
I’ve searched a lot of this, but the terms are so general that I haven’t been able to find my specific problem.
Any input is very welcome. I’m generally computer savvy, but clueless on Cubase.
Thanks in advance!
