Virtual Insrument Plays but Will Not Record

Post by justicej » Thu Jul 29, 2021 5:00 pm

This is very frustrating - I have an existing very simple project with 3 analog tracks and 1 virtual instrument track which contains a simple percussion track.

I have added a virtual instrument track and armed it with "All Mid Input Devices." I am using an Alesis Keyboard. The keyboard is recognized and plays fine. All seems good, however, I cannot get the track to record. I have armed the track with "All MIDI Input Devices," but when I hit record, the channel remains blank (no red track is laid down).

I have started a new project to test the problem and in the new project, the Virtual track records without a hitch. I have also created a new Virtual Instrument track in the project I am working on (thinking perhaps it is just hiccup in the channel) and the new Virtual channel does not record either. I also tried the musical typing feature just to test - does not record.

This feels like a bug - am I missing something. I would like to get on with this project.
Thanks

Hi,

Which virtual instrument is selected on that track?

The other MIDI track is using Omni Sampler - I experimented by trying to remove that track - still no go. I also have added new VI tracks and used the default Acoustic Piano - still will not record. I can hear the instrument, but will not lay down the track.

I feel like I have had analog tracks do the same thing and I have just started a new track and it works. But that is not working here.

This is Mixcraft 9 Pro Studio btw

RESOLVED

OK - Argh argh argh! I just found the issue. I am an idiot. I had 'Punch In' enabled on a different part of the tracks. My bad entirely. Might as well leave this thread up cuz someone else is bound to do this.

Cheers!
