Cubase 11 midi signal but no sound?

Hey all,

using cubase 11 for the first time, trying to set up midi. the midi is there and the levels go up and down but there is no audio. I tried with a normal audio recording and it plays back fine.

is there a common problem that i’m missing here? is there a greater issue with my software maybe?

thanks for any who can help.

hi joseph8888

we’re going to need more info I’m afraid .

windows/mac ?
how are you ‘trying to setup midi’ ?
internal synth or external ?
