MIDI keyboard does not hold / plays key per beat / only one note per time in chords

I updated from Cubase Artist 11 to Artist 12. Since the update I can’t get my MIDI keyboard to hold/sustain keys anymore. Instead; when I press a key it produces a sound from the virtual instrument per beat. When I hold a chord, it loops through the notes in the chord instead of playing all notes in the same time.

I have this issue with all my virual instruments.
I’m using a Novation Launchkey Mini MIDI controller and a Windows 11 machine.

Is there any solution to this problem, or is it maybe just a setting I cannot find?

Hi and welcome to the forum,

To me it sounds like any arpeggiator is enabled. It could also at your MIDI keyboard.

I have no effects in the MIDI Insert tab. It also produces the same problem on all tracks, also after restarting Cubase and opening an empty project.


Is there any arpeggiator on the MIDI keyboard my any chance?

Thanks, indeed there is an arpeggiator on the MIDI keyboard. Never noticed it for some reason. Thanks!
