I don’t really know where to ask this question but it is really putting a halt on my progress with Cubase. Huge thanks in advance.
Some back ground: I am trialing cubase elements at the moment, and when I get a bit of money together (after Christmas) I intend to buy it as I tried other programs and really like this (also my friends uses it so it is nice to get help from them from time to time in the future).
I have found another person describing this issue in a youtube comment. I’ll quote that below then I will tell you how I fixed the issue once and can’t manage to fix it again.
“I use cubase and get my Midi sounds via [Halion Sonic SE]. I can change the instrument sound on any midi track playing by reselecting … but when I restart the track the instrument reverts back to the original. How do I change the instrument in Cubase so that it saves the change?”
So one time on the phone to my friend we talked it through and I could see small durations of ‘blank’ data at the start of each midi track. I deleted them and the issue was gone. So I inferred that the ‘blank’ or silent data were midi signals to set the instrument (in this case to the general midi sound from Finale that I use).
Issue fixed. so I thought. At least is was fixed for that day, for that project.
Since then, I have started new fresh projects (using the empty template. Then I import my midi track (five tracks in total load in). But I can’t find the right bits of track to delete. The midi information signalling the general midi instrument must be a part of the tracks. I opened the piano roll and couldn’t see anything either.
I’m trying to explain myself clearly and I hope you understand my problem. Thanks for any help in advance. I am really looking forward to getting a workflow going and creating (or turning my compositions into) real music.
