[Solved] Midi playback problem (FM8)

Eternal newbie here. In a particular project I can play and record FM8 with en external keyboard, but playing back the recording doesn’t do anything. What would you suggest checking first? It’s just this one project…

Oh, also this (track preset on a group channel/disk meter maxed out) happens with the project: http://www.steinberg.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=184&t=35967&p=230719#p230719

try turning the monitor button off

Thanks for the response! Tried that, but it didn’t help. Also tried

  • reloading FM8,
  • creating a new midi track
  • creating an instrument track for FM8
    …and copying the midi data, no good.

The problem seems to happen only when beginning with a certain FM8 preset… so maybe I’m on a wrong forum.

Yep, “problem solved” :unamused: It was the FM8 arpeggiator key sync “feature”. http://www.native-instruments.com/forum/showthread.php?t=155736

You might want to prefix your topic title with something like “[Solved] …” and maybe even append with “… (FM8)” so that people with the same or a similar problem can find it easier and you will have helped them. :slight_smile:

Hey, thanks! I definitely might :slight_smile:
