hi, a new Elements 7 install on windows, start a new project choose a preset, all OK. Sounds in and out are set. Bring up instrument, arm track, everything looks and sounds ok. As soon as I hit stop, the track dissappears, and is blank. Everything I played in is gone.
I am playing in via virtual keyboard and mouse.
There must be a setting I haven’t yet turned on, help anyone?
You mean you’re not using a MIDI keyboard? Didn’t notice…never tried that. This may have something to do with that type of recording. Check the manual to find if you need to change any thing in the preferences. Sorry couldn’t help more.
You “seem” to have established, or you have established? If you can hear the sounds played via the virtual keyboard, but they are not recorded, then that´s usually because of a record filter being active.
You shoulkd start by giving a detailed description of what you are doing exactly.
To record MIDI using the Virtual Keyboard, proceed as follows:
1.Create or choose a MIDI or an instrument track and activate the “Record Enable” button for it.
2.Open the Virtual Keyboard by selecting “Virtual Keyboard” on the Devices menu, by pressing [Alt]/[Option]-[K] or by right-clicking on the Transport panel and selecting “Virtual Keyboard” on the context menu.
The Virtual Keyboard is displayed in the Transport panel.
3.Activate the Record button and press a key on your computer keyboard to enter a note.
You can also click on the keys of the Virtual Keyboard to enter notes.
•You can also press several keys simultaneously to enter polyphonic parts. The maximum number of notes that can be played at one time varies between the different operating systems and hardware configurations.
4.Use the fader “Note velocity level” to the right of the virtual keyboard to adjust the volume.
You can also use the up and down arrow keys for this.
5.Enter the desired notes this way.
6.When you are done, hit the Stop button and close the Virtual Keyboard.
When the Virtual Keyboard is hidden, all key commands are available again.
