Has MIDI Monitor been removed from Cubase Pro 12 & what alternative?

In the past I have found the MIDI Monitor in Cubase to be very helpful with past issues, although I never needed it in Pro 11 as everything worked as it should.

I have checked in Pro 11 & more importantly, Pro 12 and I can not seem to find it.

Has it been removed and are there any alternatives with the same (or better features)?

I do use MIDI OX but that only monitors MIDI outside of Cubase, I need something that can monitor, and report, what MIDI is being received within Cubase.

It’s still there. It’s a “MIDI effect” you have to insert into one of the MIDI insert slots.

Hi @mlindeb

Yep I know its a MIDI Effect and I did say that I have used it with great sucess in earlier versions of Cubase.

In Cubase Pro 12 I have an instance of Prologue open on a instrument/MIDI track, Click on Inserts, Scroll down to the Steinberg section and check every folder, nothing no MIDI Monitor.

On the Insert popup, search MIDI, or Monitor - nothing is found.

You’re looking in the Audio Inserts, or MIDI inserts on the Instrument track?

This feature works.

If you’re having a problem it will be necessary to post the steps to reproduce.

Sorry everyone…

DOH my bad, I was trying to insert it on an instrument track (to monitor the midi being sent by a MIDI controller). Its been a number of years since I used MIDI Monitor and I completely forgot that it has to be a MIDI track.

Thanks for all of the suggestions.

As others have already stated, you can insert it onto an Instrument Track.

You just have to put it into MIDI Inserts, instead of Audio Inserts.


@paka You are a bit late to the party

I had already marked this thread as solved thanks @steve
