Could anyone tell me how to use S1 Instruments? I drag and drop a preset as a track and have the (virtual keyboard) pop up. I hit record and hit notes but nothing is recorded. Is this only controlled by MIDI? Any help would be appriciated. Thanks................................Natrix

Have you selected the virtual keyboard as default input device?

Also make sure you have set it up correctly on the track and / or on the instrument.

I set the default input for QWERTY Keyboard and there is no change. My screen looks identical to your screen shot except for the computer key like window( the small one). When I hit rec. no audio.

You need to have the qwerty keyboard open. Did you create a new external device from the list, using PreSonus Keyboard as template?

I have a keyboard that has MIDI I/O on it that I have never used. Would configuring this be easier?

Back to the beginning as I'm losing you right now. You have set up your qwery keyboard as default input device right?
Now you need to open the keyboard in S1 (the qwerty keyboard in the first picture).

Open the Mixer, Open the external devices if it's not yet open and double click on the Qwerty keyboard. Pin it, using the Pin button and try again.

It's certainly a lot easier to play on a MIDI keyboard.

thanks so much for this, I'm finally getting somewhere, can actually record virtual instruments at last. qwerty is not the best. guess I gotta pick up a couple of midi cables tomorrow. It took me a lot of poking around this site and youtube to finally get the answer to something so basic it should really be much easier to get going with. I was tearing my hair out.

managed to configure my ancient yamaha psr 270 as a midi controller, why should I have to have the little keyboard cluttering up the screen as well as the big one? seems absurd and pointless to me. also having latency issues, but I haven't researched how to get around those yet.
