If you want the data from all 6 strings to be recorded to a single track, set the Input to OMNI. If you want each string on a separate track, you need to set up each individual track to record on the corresponding MIDI channel. The GT-30 Guitar Synthesizer template is designed to do this, so you may want to open that from the Start Screen or from the File menu. To use the File menu method, choose File > Openand choose Cakewalk Template from the Files of type field. Then choose the Roland GT-30 Guitar Synthesizer template.
