So I have been beating my head on the wall on this for about a day now, I cannot get any sound out of the general MIDI channel settings. I am using Cubase 5.3 (latest version) with a MOTU 828MK3 and an older (I know) KORG 01/WfD keyboard, running windows 7 64 bit as well…
If I use the VST channel it outputs fine, if I use VST Halion it also works fine, if I use ‘insert midi channel’ it will record the MIDI impulses, and it will show them, but no sound will come out at all in either play or record mode, and yes I did not forget to chick monitor! (also local control means nothing, on or off it does not work!)
I have made sure that all the filters are off, I am using the correct system timing options, even played with the output settings. (BTW it will make noise with the crappy windows one…)
When I go into the device manager, it will only show the generic ‘windows midi’ controller listed, with inputs and outputs listed as the 828mk3.
I cannot find a way to get through this, any help would be appreciated!
tl;dr NO MIDI audio, all things ‘look good’ but MIDI will record in VST instrument
