I’ve been trying to record MIDI from the DM2 drum machine into Cubasis, and can’t work out how to do it… In fact I only bought Cubasis because I read that it was one of the few apps that can actually record MIDI inputs. Nlog Pro does sometimes, but doesn’t seem to like drum machine MIDI, and anyway isn’t recording the DM2. And I don’t want to record just a short loop but a whole played sequence with variations, which is what DM2 is good at.
I’ll try to describe what I’ve done in the hope someone can tell me what I haven’t done, or have done wrong:
I’ve set DM2’s MIDI out channel to send to Cubasis and vice versa (picking MIDI channel 1 as DM2 output channel and the Cubasis MIDI track input channel).
The Cubasis MIDI track was set to a random Cubasis drum kit. I suppose that’s one candidate for being the problem, as I read somewhere something about setting the setting the instrument to “no instrument” - but I couldn’t do that because there is no “no instrument” option in the list of instruments! If someone knows (a) how to do that and (b) if it’ll make any difference, that info would be much appreciated.
Other than that, I set DM2 to play and Cubasis to record - the playhead (or record head I suppose) moves, but doesn’t fill in the space behind it and when I stop it, the track is still empty.
I expect I’m missing something really basic, and I’ll be very grateful to be told what it is… Thanks very much!
