Hi there! I recently purchased cubase elements 9 and I’m a tooootal n00b, so the question might happen to be very generic, but I tried my best to find info on this issue for two days, watched like 30 videos and read some lengthy forum posts - no use, just got more confused)) So, as for the problem the problem:
I bought Akai MPK mini mk2 and whanted to have its pads and keys work separately, I downloaded this ‘MPS Editor’ app to set pads on channel 1 and keys on channel 2 (see picture attached)
But when I open cubase I see only 1 MPKmini2 device (although I kinda was hoping to see 2 of those since I separated channels, but I might as well just be stupid))
Nevertheless I tried to create two tracks with VST (MPC Essentials in my case) to assign some stuff for the pads on 1 track and something on keys for the other. And since I could only choose 1 device in track inspector input (MPKmini2 that is), I thought I might choose the little channel number under it…
And yeah - no use at all - with both tracks monitoring turned on I just hear samples assigned to both keys and pads being played simultaneously.
Sorry for such a lengthy post concerning what probably seems like a simple thing, but as I said - cubase and all this port in/out voodoo is a frickn rocket science for me so far, it seems straight forward unless you try to make it work >.< So Any help would be IMMENSELY appretiated!!! Thx for your time)
