I’ve been having a problem with Cubase where I am not hearing my MIDI input, but it is detecting an input signal. I have the monitor button turned on. Also, When I record something with my keyboard, it shows the notes I’ve played but when I play it back, there is no sound either. Please help. I haven’t recorded a single thing due to this. The MIDI keyboard I’m using is an AKAI mpk mini. Thanks in advance
A couple of thoughts for you…
- Are you recording on an CB Instrument Track and that track has a VSTi and sound assigned?
- Have you turned off the track “Monitor” function to hear your recording (some CB versions require this)?
It’s best to provide some detail about your system and software.
Thanks for the reply. I’m using Cubase LE if that helps. I’ll try to explain exactly what I’ve done: I clicked ‘Add Instrument track’ and selected an instrument. I have selected my MIDI keyboard (AKAI mpk Mini 2). I clicked ‘Monitor’ on the track and started playing some notes. In the bar beside my track, it is monitoring the sound coming in, but I can’t hear it. I have my ASIO4ALL driver selected also if that is any help. here is a screenshot -
Thanks again for taking the time to solve some random newbie’s problem
A few more questions/thoughts…
- Are you using a audio interface? If so, what is it?
- What is set in the vst connection menu for the output bus?
- Make sure the vsti is “enabled” not “bypassed”.
- You do need to turn off the track “record enable” and monitor" functions to hear what was recorded.
Ok, so I went back to my laptop and opened up Cubase and Voila! It works! I didn’t even change anything it just… worked!!! I have a funny feeling that ill be back to this forum sooner rather than later tho haha xD Thanks so much for taking your time to help me tho, appreciate it a lot! Bye now!
One more question tho if that’s Ok xD - I have Cubase LE (It came free with my Interface) and I was wondering is it worth my money to upgrade to Cubase Elements 9.5. Does it come with a lot of better VST plugins? Thanks again (;
I can’t comment for what features might be different (maybe someone else will) but, here is a general explanation about the Cubase LE product.
