Not quite sure why or what I did, but I'm unable to view the side box that gives the midi in ('all inputs') and midi out ('V-station' for example). so when i create a new midi track i have no way of telling it which VSTi it should be controlling. Is there any simple way i can sort this or am i going to have to rebuild the track from scratch in a new cubase project? Pint of homebrew lager to the first successful reply (if you live anywhere near oxfordshire of course! lol) ---------- Post added at 13:49 ---------- Previous post was at 13:45 ---------- i know i can do it from the pop up box 'MIDI channel settings', but i like switching between MIDI tracks quickly and seeing what instrument i'm using without having to open another window in effect!
