What does it mean in Cubase when A MIDI port is set to be Inactive (under Studio/Studio Setup/MIDI Port Setup)?
Does Cubase then not use the Inactive port at all?
Would this then avoid potential conflicts, where a hardware synth and its VST app or editor both attempt to use the same port?
I thought this would be the case, however…
I’m trying to use Midi Quest (MQ) in Cubase via the MQ app, to control my Korg Kronos synth. I have 2 ports set up in Cubase for the Kronos (“Kronos Cubase” to communicate with the synth itself, and “Kronos MQ” for the MQ app, with the Kronos MQ port being set to Inactive with the idea that Cubase would then leave that port available for MQ to use), and I’m still experiencing a driver or port conflict which causes Cubase to freeze.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
