So suddenly I can not monitor vst instruments via my external keyboard.
I wasn’t having any problems before, now I am, strangely. I wanted to rule out my physical midi keyboard setup and cables and interface so I simplified it down to testing with the virtual keyboard and that also gives me the same trouble. Although clicking within the actual vsti’s pads or keys does result in audio.
A simple test:
launch Cubase 9
new blank project
file/ add track/ instrument track/ groove agent SE
loaded a drum kit within groove agent
verify sample pads trigger by clicking mouse pointer over pads and confirm audio. So far so good.
Alt+k to enable virtual keyboard
playing any of the virtual keyboard keys results in no groove agent pads being triggered.
No activity. Hmmm what happened?
On instrument track, Input midi is set to “all inputs”
Tried enabling the instrument track monitor and record modes. Nothing.
Does the above work for you with the virtual keyboard?
