In short, my instrument is not playing back (Mark Tree). Can someone please help me figure out why? Below, I’ve pasted screenshots of everything you might need to see (Percussion Map, Endpoint Setup, Track Setup on the ‘Play’ tab, Percussion Kit, and Percussion Instrument Playing Techniques.
What I’ve done so far to try to learn how to work with percussion maps
- Watched John Barron’s video from 2018 (four years old), but I couldn’t find a solution to my problem.
- Looked in the manual, but I could not find any information to help me troubleshoot why the instrument isn’t sounding on playback.
- Interestingly, it works on playback if I switch to ‘General MIDI’ as the percussion map, but I want to use the percussion map I setup.
For use with EastWest ‘Spectrasound Mark Tree 1 Dbl Length’ instrument in their Opus Percussion collection sampled instruments.

Problems I’m experiencing
Playback starts (at m. 1) BEFORE the measure in question (m. 62). When it first starts playing back, the MT (Mark Tree) sounds which shouldn’t happen because there are no notes to trigger the sound.
When it gets to the measure in question (m. 62), all I hear is silence. Measure 62 is the ONLY measure where I’ve added a note for Mark Tree.
