No input to instrument track

Feel silly asking but,
I have an instrument track with my keyboard controller routed to the input. The track is record enabled. I see MIDI activity on the MIDI monitor. But I get no sound or meter deflection from the VST on that instrument channel. The MIDI activity light on the VST is not flashing. I can draw in the notes and they will play back. Also no midi filters applied.
Rebooted, reloaded drivers. Don’t know what else to try.
Like I said, the midi info is getting into Cubase, but it’s not getting routed to the input of my instrument track.


Can’t figure it out.

Try enabling the Monitor button
