[SOLVED] How to record the MIDI output of Scaler?

I am sure I solved this problem in the past, but for some reason, I am not able to do it again today in Bitwig Studio 5.1.8 and Scaler 2.9.

I would like to “record” the MIDI output of Scaler so that I can remove the VST from the track and manipulate the notes directly if necessary. However, I can’t seem to find a way to do that.

Imagine I have two tracks: Track 1 with Scaler and the original melody played through it, and Track 2 with my virtual instrument, e.g. a sax. I set Track 1’s output using the “Note to track” feature and giving it Track 2 as destination. In Track 2, I set the Note input as “All ins”, I arm it and record… I can hear the sax playing but nothing is recorded in MIDI.

Any hints? Thanks!



The receiving track was set on a different MIDI channel than 1 (the one I had originally used to play the melody with an external keyboard). So Track 1 was sending notes on channel 1, but Track 2 was listening on 6.
