My instrument and vocal tracks produce great sound but I cannot seem to get any MIDI sound output from Cubase 7 LE using a software MIDI synth in Windows. It is as if the MIDI volume is muted. I initially tried with the GS Wavetable synth, though I read about CoolSoft VirtualMIDISynth, installed and tried it, but still no sound. I can play the MIDI files just fine in other windows programs, using either synth. Unfortunately I do not have an external MIDI synth.
For the heck of it, I also installed a different ASIO driver (ASIO4All), but it was no help.
I would really appreciate some help with this. I no expert at Cubase, I get by just fine with the guitar and vocals, but this is the first I’ve tried adding a MIDI backing track (from a file). I’m running Windows 10 64-bit. Here are some screenshots, in case they help. Thanks!
