I have recently set up my Yamaha MX88 to work with Cubase 9.5. I’m completely new to production and so all of this looks very complicated to me. I believe I’ve downloaded and set everything up correctly to record MIDI as when I try to record a MIDI track, I can playback the information I entered through the Yamaha MX88 in Cubase. However, every time I hit record for a new MIDI track, it plays the rhythm pattern into the MIDI track when I only want to record the notes I’m playing in whatever voice I’m playing it in (i.e. organ, bass, etc.).
Simply put, I just want to record the notes I’m playing from my Yamaha MX88 into Cubase sweet and simple, and nothing more. I don’t want there to automatically be some kind of rhythm pattern in the back when I hit record on the new MIDI track.
Is there an easy solution for this? Most tutorials I’ve watched on Youtube skip over this simple step for recording and go much deeper into production so I’m stuck here, unable to record anything without a pre-recorded track from the MX88 butting into the recording.
Thanks in advance for all the help. I’m trying to figure this out ASAP so I can start making some music!!
