Confused myself completely this afternoon - need some help.
I’ve assigned MIDI CC 7 (Volume) to a knob on my keyboard with the intention of controlling a track’s volume in realtime from the keyboard.
I can record events from moving the knob and they appear in the track as CC 7 (Volume) events. They play back to the keyboard correctly; the volume of the sound changes in sync with the MIDI events as it should. BUT neither the volume indicator in the track inspector nor the mixer fader move to reflect any of these events - they simply don’t move at all.
However, if I set up a Quick Contol on the track for Volume, movements of the knob on the keyboard are reflected in the mixer and the track inspector whether recording or not. Though when the track plays back any recorded volume events, the mixer and track inspector indicator don’t move again.
What am I doing wrong here? If I use MIDI CC 7 from an external keyboard to lower the volume of a MIDI track why doesn’t the mixer reflect the change?
