no midi playback in ce5

having a little problem. when i go to record a midi instrument, even though the leds are lighting up on the track and i can hear the instrument while recording, there are no midi notes shown on the track and therefore i can’t hear the instument during playback. i have the routing set to “all midi inputs”, so i don’t think it’s a routing problem. if anyone could give me some advice it’d be greatly appreciated.

excuse me if this seems like a very stupid answer, but have you actually pressed the record enable button rather than just the monitor button?
