Chapter 5. Recording MIDI > Recording Multiple MIDI Tracks

Recording Multiple MIDI Tracks

Up until now, you have been learning about recording single tracks. That is the most common way MIDI is recorded, but Cubase also can record more than one track at a time. There are many situations in which this is a good idea, such as when you want to record more than one musician, to record the same part to more than one destination, or to record MIDI instruments that transmit on more than one channel.

To record multiple MIDI tracks

1.
Record-enable all tracks that you want to record (Figure 5.30).

Figure 5.30. Three tracks record-enabled; all will record at the same time.


2.
In the inspector for each track, select the MIDI input you want to use. This may be the same for all tracks, or it may be different, depending on your situation.

3.
In the Track inspector or on the track list, select a MIDI output for each track to be recorded (Figure 5.31).

Figure 5.31. Each track that will record is set to its own MIDI output; this is the view in the track list.


When you start recording, all record-enabled tracks will record MIDI from their selected MIDI inputs (Figure 5.32).

Figure 5.32. All four tracks are recording at the same time.


4.
When you are finished recording, click Stop on the Transport bar or use the keyboard to stop recording.
