Symptom: I have inserted a soft synth, but when I play notes on my MIDI keyboard I don't hear anything.
Make sure Cakewalk’s audio engine is engaged. The Audio Engine button in the Control Bar (Transport module) is lit when the audio engine is engaged.
Make sure the Input Echo button on the current MIDI track is set to Input Echo: Auto Thru or Input Echo: On.
