In this video, we will cover MIDI Connections to ensure your MIDI Controller and Cubase are communicating properly. MIDI input will allow you to trigger various virtual instruments, and allow you to record your performance. It is very likely that your MIDI inputs will already be active and functioning correctly. Let's make sure this is the case. Go to Devices > Device Setup, select the MIDI Port Setup and make sure you see your MIDI device in the yellow column over here. Check that the columns that say visible, Active state, and in All MIDI are checked, press OK.
Once this is done, let's check our transport for MIDI activity. MIDI activity will be seen here. Let's press any key on the controller and look at the transport, there it is. You do not need any MIDI tracks open for this to be active. Now that we've ensured proper MIDI input into Cubase from your MIDI controller, we are ready to learn about and start playing and recording virtual instruments.
