The issue is that all recorded MIDI notes are stacked at the beginning of the MIDI event.
I’ve read that some Windows users need to check Use System Timestamp in the MIDI Port set up to get their USB keyboard controllers to work properly. This option doesn’t seem to be available for Mac users.
The Ztar cannot pass sys ex through the USB port, which means that users have to connect to the supplied MIDI patch bay/power source in order to load or save sys ex. This is a known issue.
When connected via USB, the Ztar is recognized by the OSX Audio MIDI utility and shows up in the Cubase Devices>Device Set up menu.
I can play VSTi in real time. When recording in Cubase, a horizontal line runs through the MIDI event and changes per played MIDI note. Opening any MIDI editor shows results similar to the attachment. (I can record MIDI via USB in another DAW)
Hooking up to Cubase via the supplied MIDI connections works fine. But that means a wart wort, MIDI cables from the controller to the MIDI patcher, then more MIDI cables to a MIDI patchbay (FastLane). All of this defeats the objective of running a very streamlined system.
There is a known issue with this controller, but Is there some setting that I’ve missed in Cubase?
