1.8.0 Bug - MIDI input sound is sent to all output channels

Synth record level in DAW is way too loud … IF …

If multiple outputs are created in the DAW for SynthV VST3
The synth sound for recording becomes way too loud

ie.
if all 16 outputs are enabled
Then the synth sound output level becomes — 1 x 16
Each individual output accumulates to the overall synth level output
Even if the MASTER GAIN of the synth is set at -12dB, It is still way too loud to record

SYSTEM:
Cubase 11 Pro - Windows 10

1.8.0 seems a super update btw - :kissing:

I’m not certain that I understand the problem. Is this not the expected result? If you send the same source to multiple tracks naturally they would be added together, otherwise why duplicate the output?

Hello claire,

It’s not a duplicate output, each SynthV track can have it’s own DAW output

When you enable record only one output should play the synth sound
At the moment all outputs output a synth sound
So, if 16 outputs are created, you get 16 synths playing at the same time
That is a lot of sound …
You want multiple outputs, but only 1 synth sound playing
Then the MASTER GAIN does what is should, control the level of the internal synth

The synth in SynthV is a single internal source as a reference only for recording
It only needs to output once, not on each created output, there is no need for that

Hope this explains it a bit better ?

Ahh I think I understand now.

I’ve tried the same in FL Studio and it seems to work without any strange volume problems, so this is probably a Cubase-specific issue. Hopefully this helps narrow it down for Dreamtonics to fix.

Uuhhmm, I think we’re still not on the same page
The problem is Midi input and the synth sound that plays

SEE MY VIDEO HERE

So, here the Midi synth outputs to all outputs, it doesn’t need to, it only needs one output
The Vocal synth must/can output over each output, that’s what your video displays
But the Midi synth should not play over all outputs, - OR you need a MASTER GAIN for each output
Cause the sound becomes very very loud

I see, so the bug is that the preview sound that plays when using a MIDI controller is sent to all output channels.

Yup, that’s the word - preview sound, if I would have used that word it would probably have been simpler
Ah well, but yes that’s the bug
Mind that in that video the MASTER GAIN is -12dB, complete pushed left and still the sound is loud
Anyway, glad you asked, now it’s hopefully also clear to the people in the clouds, Dreamtonics, if they read this :sunglasses:
