Cubase 11 Pro - Bounce MIDI greyed out, user manual no help what so ever?

So I am wanting to bounce a 2 bar section of what one of my VSTi’s are playing and have the result placed on a new audio track underneith the MIDI section I am bouncing. This is fairly standard in other DAW’s.

So this is what I am doing:
With the section I want to bounce selected using my mouse cusor, I go to MIDI menu but the Bounce MIDI is greyed out which makes no sense.

Can someone kindly point me in the right direction?

Menu items are always greyed out if they act on something like a MIDI Part or Audio Event and you don’t have an appropriate Part or Event Selected. So if you want MIDI Bounce to be active you need to have some MIDI Parts selected.

That said, it doesn’t sound like you should be using MIDI Bounce at all. MIDI Bounce is used to bounce multiple MIDI Parts into a new MIDI Part. It doesn’t create audio.

What it sounds like you want to do is accomplished by using Render In Place. This will create an Audio file on a new Track derived from your MIDI Part.
