I recently upgraded my studio to CuBase 5 running on Windows 7. I never really recorded MIDI but I want to start using it more especially VST instruments.
My question is this, I use a MIDI keyboard controller that makes no sound on its own except for a piano tone. I have recorded a few quick midi tracks, both MIDI using the piano sound on the controller or with the VST Instruments. Everything records fine and sounds great but the MIDI IN activity meter shows activity non stop even when not touching the keys or in stop mode.
It doesnt affect the recording but it seems odd. Is this from my controller sending midi messages? If so how do I shut this off? or is it something entirely different?
Any tips are appreciated and again I am new to the world of midi so it could be something basic that i am not doing.
