People keep telling you that the faders you are showing us do not control sound.
You seem reluctant to believe this.
In your last post you said even with the level set to zero you are hearing sound.
That’s because those faders do not control sound
Since you are using MIDI Tracks, you need to use the Audio Output channel for the VSTi that you are driving with the MIDI Track. That fader does control the sound.
In this image, you are using the fader on the left. Stop doing that. You need to use the fader on the right.
I’d highly encourage you to use Instrument Tracks (which combine the midi and audio into one integrated track) instead of the ‘MIDI Track/Rack Instrument’ combo you are using here (which separates midi & audio control into two independent elements). Instrument Tracks are simpler to use and less likely to create confusion.
