Use more columns :)

If you use more columns and you still only hear one voice at a time, then perhaps your sound in your VSTi is set to monopoly, and will not produce 2 sounds.

If you just want that your note isn't being cut by a previous note, you can set a different NNA (New Note Action) from the instrument tab. For instance, set it to note-off or note-continue.

Note continue will keep playing the note regarding the new note. (if it loops, it can become a mess, so be cautioned with this one)

note-off will release the note with sustain when the next note is being played.

note-cut which is the default will cut the note, atleast when using samples. Not sure if it works with VSTi's too...

Nooo!!! Your VSTi is set to take over the world!! :D
He means your VSTi might be monophonic, in which case you'll need multiple instances to create chords.

To confirm LP's point, with VSTi the note-cut NNA behaves like note-off (i.e. the instrument's release will be played, if it has one). There is no concept of a reliable per-voice note-cut in MIDI.

Haha, can you imagine how hard I have to laugh sometimes.. Note, I don't make these typo's on purpose, but then again, english isn't my native language either :)

Nevertheless, Rewbs, continue to put me in the ground... They love it :lol:
