I have bought Kirnu Cream. It's installed, opens perfectly but when I hit notes on the keyboard the sequencer begins playing in the VST but no sound comes out. I've fiddled around with everything but can't get it to work. I have selected one of the presets in the VST also.

Do I need to route the MIDI somehow? When I look at YouTube videos, everything seems to work from the start.

Some kind of step by step tutorial would be helpful.

You do need to route, and probably also will need another instrument (to be played by Kirnu Cream's MIDI).

I think you should maybe read the manual which is at

Third page of the manual (ie first thing after installation instructions) explains:
Basic Usage

Cream needs a VST/AU host application to run. There are several hosts aka DAWs to choose from:
Reaper, Ableton Live, Cubase, Cakewalk Sonar...

‐ In order to your host to find Cream you have to set the plugin path to point the Cream install
‐ Cream needs MIDI notes in order to operate. Therefore you have to put Cream in a MIDI track and
feed some lovely MIDI notes to it.
‐ Cream itself doesn’t produce any sound so it’s mandatory to route Cream generated MIDI notes to
some instrument in order to hear any sound.

‐ Every host has their own ways to route MIDI plugins and there will be Cream usage videos created for
all major hosts.
(my emphasis)
Probably not vurt.
