Strange MIDI reception behavior of my Cubase 5.1.1 for a couple of days :
My E-Piano or my midi keyboard definitively send midi events on ONE channel only (e.g. channel 4), BUT Cubase 5.1.1 (and ONLY Cubase does so now!) plays ALL active midi tracks or VST Instruments via their belonging midi tracks! Cubase seems to ignore the individual midi receive channel setting for each midi track, even in the simplest NEW projects, even those based on an empty project and wired by hand!
So once again: Ff the keyboard sends data just only on channel 2 (or any other), ALL active midi tracks of Cubase receive these data and play their part, although they are set to DIFFERENT midi channels (NO channel is set to all or any!). So all active midi tracks always do react on any input channel, not only to the sending one!
What’s going on there? Can’t be true!
I’m I blind?
I checked the external MIDI conditions dozens of times with several tools and music software:
MIDI Monitor software, all MIDI data are correctly transmitted by my E-Piano and received by the selected RME card, when I’ve selected MIDI out channel 2 on my Piano(s) then the RME card receives it on the same channel and on no other, as I expect (I tried both of my RME cards separately, the RME AIO and the RME AES-32 card)
Other MIDI players like the Topten Cantabile player shipped with the Synthogy Ivory II piano also receive only the channel I want to work with, the other tracks/instruments keep out, when they don’t get data not “their” channel. And when I change the sending channel, the track with the corresponding receiving channel reacts as I wish! Everything work perfect there!
BUT Cubase doesn’t anymore. It receives and plays anything altogether. The MIDI routing seems to be completely in a mess. But WHY. I did not find anything like a MIDI routing table or sth similiar. What’s going on?
There is no MIDI filter in the way, I never used rewiring or sth like this, nothing.
I DO NOT want to reinstall cubase. There MUST be a misadjustment anywhere.
Please help me!!!
