So I just upgraded to Cubase Pro 9.5 and am having an issue with my hardware synths through MIDI. I select a MIDI track as usual, assign the correct MIDI channel and play on my controller. The MIDI lights on my MOTU 128 work properly and the MIDI lights on the target hardware synth show that the instrument is receiving MIDI data. My issue is that I now get no sound from my synth (plugged into a Presonus 1818VL). I do get sound through the synth’s headphone jack. But this worked properly in Cubase 8.5.
My work around is to make an Audio track with the input audio assigned to the outputs of the target synth. So I now need a MIDI track and an audio track together, just in order to monitor the synthesizer that I’m triggering with MIDI. The work around works fine but is a real impediment to my work flow. This isn’t normal is it?
To be fair to Steinberg, I suspect the issue is with my Presonus Audio interface, but I thought I’d ask here also, in case anyone else has had this issue.
Thanks in advance for any help.
