BFD starts playing when trying to record midi and routing issues

When i try to record midi, BFD starts playing the preset. I have BFD assigned as an instrument track. I have “Groove” set to off yet it continues. Also, I am using DP 11.21 on a MacBook Pro. OS is 10.14.6. Thx in advance for your response, EJV

I’m going to assume you’re pressing the play button in DP and not in the BFD3 groove pane?

Try unchecking the enable shortcuts box in BFD prefs. May be conflicting with your DAW.
