Issue with VST playback when utilizing more than one instance of PLAY

Hi All,

I’m currently trying to use more than one instance of PLAY within Cubase, but whenever I load instruments into the second instance, I cannot get any sound to play from the MIDI tracks assigned to each channel from the second instance. I can generate sound just fine from the first instance, but when loading any additional instances, no sound is playing. Note that I am assigning the second instance to each MIDI tracks associated. I’m sure it’s something silly that I’m missing, but I haven’t been able to find anything online or within the manuals that clearly state how to do so.

If you need any further information, please let me know.

Thanks in advance!


Just guessing… Could you try to increase your Audio Device’s Buffer Size, please?


I’d double check that the MIDI Channels are properly setup. Keep in mind that a Note in the Key Editor can have any MIDI Channel Number assigned to it. But that Channel can be changed during playback if the Track is set to a specific number and not to “Any”
