Expression Lane not reading

Cubase 10.5.12 Mac OS 10.15.4

The Expression lane ignores any expression I draw in there. What gives?


What do you mean by “Expression lane”, please? Do you mean MIDI CC11 in the Key Editor or do you mean a Note Expression or something different?

When in midi-editing, I usually have the Velocity, Expression and Sustain information visible…in their own “Lanes” so to speak. However, since 10.5, I’ll draw in a fade for say strings…and Cubase ignores it. Prior to that the same plug in (in this case from Spitfire) worked perfectly. Is that clearer! Thanks for responding. I’ve been Nuendo/Cubase for 12 years I guess. The best.


So I understand you mean the Controller lane in the Key Editor (sorry, it’s really good to use the right terminology to understand each other).

It depends on the Instrument, if it does interpret MIDI CC11 and how. Try to add MIDI Monitor Insert effect to double-check the MIDI CC11 has been sent out from the track.

You can also double check Preferences > MIDI > MIDI Filter and make sure MIDI CC11 is not filtered out.

Could you try in Cubase Safe Start Mode [Disable preferences], please?
