MIDI events being "seen" - what am I missing?
Total noob here, running the Alesis Lite version while evaluating for possible upgrade.
OK - I have a MIDI track (in arrange view), I've assigned a controller input and a placed a vsti on the track. I play the controller, the vsti responds. So far, so good.
I arm the track with overdub on, and play something - it get's recorded, both audibly and visibly (I can see the events, and a "clip header" gets created). And WHILE THE TRACK IS STILL ARMED I can hit play - in either Arrangement or Session views - and the events play back.
BUT - the moment I dis-arm the track, or uncheck ovedub, the clip header "whites out" and will not play in either view. The events are still visible, the timeline is moving across them, and I can still play the track manually - but the midi events I just recorded are not being "seen".
Been thru the online help, and the manual pdf , or I wouldn't be here. Is it necessary to somehow "confirm" or "promote" these events? I've gotta be missing something obvious - it can't possibly be this obtuse to do basic midi sequencing, Live never could have gotten as far as it has if that were so.
And for the record - as regards my primary need for the software - hosting vsti's in a performance environment - Live so far has been, quite frankly, rather brilliant. Couldn't be happier - but this first foray into sequencing has left me utterly baffled.
Any help appreciated - thanks!
