Ok this is not a ‘‘purely-related’’ question to Cubase, but probably both MIDi knowledge, XV-5080-related and Cubase…
I have installed the device correctly, and can access the patches (and change them, presets A to G) directly from Cubase.
However, few questions remain:
why am I not seeing the ‘‘rythm’’ (drums) ? Are they on a separate script to be installed ? (Of course, I can go manually on the XV, select a rythm and record it to Cubase, but would like to be able to get that drop down menu also for rythm parts.
Same question for one expansion board that is installed.
It looks like I cannot set multiple MIDI tracks in Cubase with the device. Most likely related to selection of the MIDI channel… Here’s the issue : if I try to set a different patch on another track and different channel (else than ‘‘1’’), I get an active meter in Cubase, and I see light blinking on the XV-5080, so I assume there is* MIDI activity… However, I get no audio output, wether in the mixing board (same physical connection of course), nor even if I plug a headphone directly in the XV-5080 !! … Only way I can ‘‘solve’’ this is… changing channel to ‘‘1’’ again, but then, the problem is that all other tracks change to the same patch !..
My ‘‘input’’ in Cubase is set to a controller connected in USB to the computer (Axion 49). Then all devices (including this XV-5080) are connected to/from a MIDI interface (MOTU Express MIDI 128). The XV-5080 specifically through its IN and OUT midi ports.
Haven’t used MIDI for a long time, which does not help to troubleshoot of course…
Thanks for any help on this, XV owners or not,
