Rookie question! - More than one sound playing

Hi guys,
I’m new to MIDI and still trying to get my head round it all. I have a Komplete Kontrol S88 and am running Cubase 8 Elements. I’m sure my question is so basic that it is answered on page 1 of a Dummies guide to MIDI, but I don’t have one of those so hopefully someone can help me!
In Cubase I am assigning soundsto various MIDI channels, lets say I have drums assigned to ch.1 and piano on ch.2. I assumed that if I click on track 1 which is the drum track, when i hit a key on the keyboard it should play a drum sound, but it plays both drums and piano.
What have I missed for me to be sending a MIDI message to both of these channels?
Thanks in advance

Quick thought…

Both tracks are not record enabled right?

Regards :sunglasses:

No they are not both record enabled. Thanks anyway.

And the “monitor” button is only “ON” for the track with the instrument you want to play?

Thanks Jenks, that was it… both monitors were on. All good now. Thanks to you both. :slight_smile:
