hi, I have an Elektron Digitakt. I am trying to get it to sequence multiple VSTs. The problem I have is although I can set the different sequences to different MIDI channels - but each of the tracks in Cubase Pro 10.5 are hearing all the data on all the tracks.

I did a bit of research and the answer I've senn is

"make midi track
on that track you select as midi input the digitakt
open the input transformer to give in the command that he only listens to channel 1
select as midi output the external synth you want and put midi out channel on 1
and so on for track 2 on channel 2 and track 3 on channel 3"

My issue is "open the input transformer to give in the command that he only listens to channel 1" How do I do that. I've opened the Input Transformer, set it to local, filter, set Channel 1 Equal to 1 and then can't find my way from there?

yes it does! - it showed me that the presets were missing. Apparently this happens quite often. I needed to copy the presets from the main Cubase program folders into the app data folders.

It's covered here

thanks again. I've made notes.

I thought the problem was in the Digitakt settings originally because it does the same thing in Bitwig. Unfortunately I don't think it can be fixed in native Bitwig.
