Connecting External Synth

Hi All,

I fear this is a noob issue i’m having, but hopefully someone can help:

I have set up an external synth (Behringer DM12) and aim to use this as my main MIDI controller also. I have done the following:

  1. Created DM12 as an ‘External Instrument’ within Studio > Audio Connections
  2. Created the DM12 as a MIDI device within the MIDI Device Manager

And this works fine; I can drop the DM12 in as an external VSTi in an instrument track and I can record/send MIDI and hear the synth. The problem is that If I load up another VSTi such as Retrologue in another track, whenever I hit my keyboard to trigger Retrologue, it still triggers the DM12 track and I can hear this at the same time. I’m sure it’s something very stupid I am missing, but any help would be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks


1.) are you certain Local is turned off within your DM12?

2.) are you certain the Retrologue track is the only one record enabled?
