This could very well be a case of me being ignorant…
But I have been unable to get my sustain pedal to work in Cubase 9.
I am running on Windows 10. My controller is an Akai MPK88 with an M-Gear pedal. I used this setup without issue in Cubase 8.5 and previous versions (and it still works fine if I open Cubase 8.5 rather than Cubase 9).
In Cubase 9, the keyboard plays fine with a VST instrument, but sustain is not working at all. In the transport panel, it is clear that MIDI data is being received by Cubase 9 when I step on and release the pedal, but if I open up the MIDI Monitor plug-in in the MIDI inserts, it clearly is NOT receiving MIDI data.
So why would Cubase 9 be showing received MIDI signals from the sustain pedal in the transport panel, but the MIDI track itself not receive the sustain pedal MIDI signal? And, of course, how can I rectify this?
