Why I am not able to record sound from HALion Sonic’s internal keyboard (played with a mouse) directly on to either an instrument or a midi track, although I can do so either using an external keyboard as midi controller, or even using the mini keyboard available on the Cubase transport window? I can hear the sound from HALion fine, but no blocks register on the record-enabled track, which simply vanishes when I stop recording. Clearly Cubase can “see” HALion fine but for some reason is not routing its output to the record-enabled track.
Is there something I need to set up? I do not think this is a HALion problem incidentally, as the same applies to other synths etc - I can only record their output via an external controller. Nor is it external hardware - same difficulty on my desktop, with no audio interface or controller attached.
I am using Cubase 6.5, fully updated so far as I am aware.
