I am not a technical wizzard so maybe my question looks simple to you, it certainly isn't for me.
I go back, use to have a yamaha sy-77 with cubase (version don't remember)
with which i can play and record whatever i wanted.
I have been out of the music field for some time and wanted to pick it up again.
A good windows 10 pc (i7 - 64 bit - 32 gb ram)
Cubase 9.5 with steinberg UR 824
Yamaha montage 7
I have downloaded the latest steinberg/yamaha drivers
update montage firmware to 1.6
I connect montage with USB to my pc
Turn everything on and as last I start up cubase 9.5
Then I select recording template: yamaha MONTAGE stereo recording
and immediately get a screen with the title "Missing ports"
in red i see (under the column Mapped Port) all read "Unmapped"
when i click that I have to option to assign UR824 ..... (no montage)
I close that window without making changes (because i have no idea)
then in project i select a midi track and am able to record midi (i see the notes in cubase)
but I cannot play it back to montage.
I've been searching for reasons why it doesnt work, read something about setup in montage.
utility / quick setup / midi rec on daw
but that didn't improve
Please help. thank you
