Let’s see if I can explain what is going on. I am using a demo version of Cubase Elements and thinking about buying perhaps. I have always been a SONAR user an currently own SONAR Professional.
When I do a project in SONAR, my MIDI Device is an “Oxygen 25”. I play my notes and chords on it and record MIDI. Now if I select a midi track in SONAR, let’s say Violins, that track is routed to my East West Gold PLAY for example, Channel 1 where I would have Violins. I play my Oxygen 25 and I only hear the Violins. If I click on MIDI track 2 and let’s say I have Horn there, all I hear are Horns. Nothing else plays.
Now in Cubase, I can’t seem to do that. I am running an instance of Kontakt with Sonokinetic Grosso and one instance of PLAY with Horns. I MIDI recorded some triads on the Grosso track, but when I try to record on the Horn track, it also plays the Grosso track.
This never was a problem in SONAR. Depending on which track I select, only that specific track would respond to the MIDI signal from my Oxygen. In Cubase, every track responds to whatever I play on the Oxygen. I can’t seem to get around this. Also in SONAR my Oxygen shows 16 MIDI ports, in Cubase it shows no ports.
Any ideas? Is it Cubase Elements? Do I need a better version of Cubase?
