Hi and welcome to the forum,

How is the Studio > Audio Connections > Outputs setup, please?


To me it looks like you are using the integrated audio device. Am I right?

thats just what is set now, but usally i use stseinberg driver and still doenst work


If you use Steinberg Audio Device, change the ASIO Driver in the Studio > Studio Setup > Audio System > ASIO Driver.

i do do that, and still doesnt work

it works on the halion app on my desktop but when i use haion in a cubase project then it doesnt work


I can see The Grand 3 instrument, not HALion Sonic. Are you sure the MIDI data arrive to the track?

i just showed that as a sample, doesnt rk either with halion.


Are you sure the MIDI data arrive to the track?

YES I am sure

STANDALONE WORKS I think i might have pushed a setting to make it only work standalone


How, please?

It has nothing to do with the standalone.

ok so what do i do?

Did you check Audio Connections yet?

yes i just did

what happened after that? Do you know how to check if your midi keyboard signal is actually reaching Cubase?
