I am new to the computer version of Cubase (8 Pro) although I have used Cubasis on the iPad for a while. My work to this point has been primarily with audio tracks, but I am trying to learn how to use the VST Instruments. I have observed the beginning Quick Start Videos 1-4 and have a copy of Power Tools for Cubase 7 (nothing available for Cubase 8 yet) in which I have read the first four chapters.
I am attempting to use Groove Agent SE to make a rudimentary drum track. I have been able to create a track with Groove Agent selected, and the technique of dragging and dropping prerecorded patterns works. However, when I try to manually play the individual pads while using the usual recording procedure with the record button activated no track is recorded.
Can someone suggest what I might be overlooking.
Thanks in advance for suggestions.
