How to "lock" my MIDI controller to a specific track so I can mouse around and edit freely?

In Cubase, my MIDI controller controls whichever MIDI track I have selected in the project window, or nothing if a non-MIDI track is selected.

Sometimes, I would like the MIDI controller to always control a single instrument (lead synth for example), no matter what I click or edit in the project window.

Is there a way to do that?

Yes, if you

  • set the Preferences: VST - Auto Monitoring to manual
  • activate Monitor only on the desired Midi Track(s)

Aha. I wasn’t using Monitor correctly. Thanks!
