So basically I’m trying to record arpeggiator notes into Cubase from my Virus Indigo synth, and I’m trying to get it to actually record into a MIDI channel as note data, but what I’m getting is only the data from the notes held, basically only recording chords. Now I already know that with hardware synths you need to have them set to send arpeggiator data, this is already on but what happens is you get problems with the arpeggio, it doesn’t arpeggiate just plays the notes for a short couple of seconds and then cuts off.
In the manual of the virus it states this: “If you want to record notes generated by the Arpeggiator to a sequencer, please ensure that these are not sent directly back to the Virus. If you fail to do this, the Arpeggiator may no longer be able to play correctly under these conditions. To avoid this situation, route data via another MIDI channel or switch off the MIDI thru function on your sequencer.”
So I have already went through the preferences and into MIDI and checked off the Thru function disabling it, but now I’m getting no sound whatsoever from my Virus even when I’m playing the keys. So that didn’t work.
Now it says “route data via another MIDI channel”. How can I do this?
I was reading about the same problem on Access’s website and this guy states that “I succeded in recording the arpeggiated notes in Sonar with 2 midi channels (1 for the notes comming from the keyboard midi controller and other for recording data comming out from the Virus B Midi Out). With this setup you can record the arpeggiated notes and control information (as knob moviments of filter section, for example)”
But how can I do this with Cubase? Thanks in advance
