I am using Cubase 11 Elements, and am trying to lay down a beat that I created with Beat Scholar. when I create a new Instrument track with Beat Scholar I can see that the level meters are showing that it is recognizing the input. However, when I go to record, I get nothing. Just a blank track.
I have Record enabled, and have tried with Monitor on and off. I have tried using my Scarlett 18i8 interface, I have tried using ASIO4ALL, as well as the Generic Windows ASIO driver. None will allow me to record the sound that I am hearing. I have reached out to Beat Scholar, but the suggestions they asked me to try do not work either.
1. Use Render in Place (I do not have that option under Edit)
2. Use Group track (still cannot get anything to record)
Does anyone have experience with this? Is the issue that I am using Elements and not Pro? I have not had a single issue with Guitars using Neural DSP or any of my NI plugin instruments, just this one.
When I record using NI instruments, I use Kontakt 7 - Event output, but with Beat scholar I have tried all possible MIDI options and cannot get it to record). I see everything like it should be recording, but once I try, it is just an empty track (see image). I do not have this problem with any other plugins. I MUST be doing something wrong…
However, after a few emails back and forth, Modalics’ amazing support was able to help me figure this out. So I will leave the solution for anyone that may want to use this plugin the way I was trying to. I wanted to take the beat I created in Beat Scholar and add to a new track. Then I wanted to replace the Beat Scholar sound with my Get Good Drums kit. This worked perfectly.
Add Instrument track, in this case - Beat Scholar
Disable the internal sampler
Add a new Instrument track, for this I wanted Get Good Drums, so I added a Kontakt 7 track
Make sure “Beat Scholar MIDI” is set as the input to Kontakt
Record the Kontakt track (not the Beat Scholar track).
This is an image of the process they shared with me.
