I apologise if this is not the right section to ask this.
I recently upgraded my system and bought a Mac mini M1, a Scarlett Focusrite 4i4 3th generation, and I’m currently trying to make my Yamaha MOTIF XS8 work via MIDI cable to record and playback midi notes on Cubase 11 - usb won’t work anymore because of the new apple silicon chip and Big Sur, so I found this workaround.
Usually, what I do is create a MIDI track and an audio track: I can record midi notes and when I play them back on Cubase, the keyboard will read the notes and play back audio as well.
So, everything kind of works fine, I can record MIDI files and simultaneously hear audio coming from the keyboard. The problem is during playback. Cubase won’t recognise any midi note that I just recorded, thus it won’t playback audio. I can’t even see midi signal coming in, which actually happens when I hit a note or record.
I attached a screenshot of the midi track settings (I tried both “Scarlett USB” and “midi all” on input but it doesn’t seem to change anything).
What might be the issue?
