Omnisphere with Chord Pads not working

Does anyone have Omnisphere to test something for me? if you do please do me a favor and test it with the Chord Pads. For me when I load Omnisphere into a track and press any Pad in the lower zone only one note plays but as soon as I load a different instrument I get the chords when pressing the pads.
Please let me know, thank you.


Sorry, I have no Omnisphere now, but isn’t the sound set as monophonic?

Thank you for your help, I identified the problem, I don’t know if it’s a glitch in Cubase or if it’s by design.
When the input was set to “All” the Chord Pads were only playing one note but when I switched to “Channel 1” The Pads were playing all the notes as designed. See the attached image.
Very strange behavior.
Any ideas why this would be? Thank you

What you show on the screenshot, is not an Input, it’s an Output.

That means, Omnisphere is using multi-channels.

I am so sorry for using the wrong terminology, still new to Cubase from Ableton :slight_smile:
Does that mean that all multi-channel instruments will only output one note when using the Chord pads when the output is set to “any” and this is not a glitch?
Thank you so much for your help


If the Output is set to Any, this means, the source (MIDI/Instrument) track sends the data over all MIDI Channels. It depends on every single MIDI Message, that which MIDI Channel is using.
