Prock, the answers to your questions:
Please provide your computer OS and Cubase version.
Are you recording to a Cubase “midi” or “instrument” track?
I’ve done both
Is the track “monitor” function activated while you are recording?
Is Halion and an instrument sound active while recording?
But something I just noticed is that if I hit a key on the keyboard and while recording a midi track, the midi track doesn’t take that input.
Is/was the stereo out track (or the associated midi/instrument track) set to “mute”?
No. Checked and rechecked.
Is everything set correctly per the Roland manual page 218?
Yes. Like I said, Cubase is showing midi activity when I use the Fantom keyboard as well as when I record a midi track, it takes all control signals as expected. I can then turn around and play the track through Halion or any other midi synth.
Also something to note is that the Midi fader.
When I engage the fader, Halion recognizes the midi activity.
And when I hit a key on the keyboard, the activity ‘gauge’ next to fader shows midi activity, but nothing happens in Halion.
But, when i have a recorded midi track that i play back, the activity gauge shows the midi activity as well as Halion showing it’s receiving (playing back) the midi activity.
And Funny enough, when i still had midi cables ( a few years ago), my old Roland XP60 worked as expected.
This isn’t a new issue; just bugging me now to figure it out.
