Cubase 5 midi guitar 2

Trying to make midi guitar work but…not happening.
I created the mono audio channel, clicked on monitoring, added midi guitar as an insert, set tool to keyboard and instrument to mda piano in midi guitar but it does not receive a signal it seems.

Also tr lolied creating a stereo audio channel but no hope.
I did add an instrument track and set it to audio 1 but nothing.

The weird thing is that if I launch midi guitar as stand alone I do get a signal but no sound.

I am using a sound card, plugged the jack and set the gain. I don’t have any experience with this software midi or guitars, I am just a trumpet player looking for fun during quarantine, any help greatly appreciated.
