I have a simple project with a drumbeat on one track, and a synth plugin loaded into a second midi track.
When playback is paused, I can play sounds using my Arturia Keystep – including with the arpeggiator and sequences saved on the device.
I can also record MIDI, as you would expect.
However, if I want to practice a keyboard part without recording, and simply press play (with no tracks armed) I can’t get any synth sounds to play. As soon as I stop playback I can play hear synth sounds again.
Doesn’t matter what synth plugin I use – same result.
What am I doing wrong?
