Why are midi notes playing but not being recorded?

I am using a KORG Triton as a midi keyboard controller (as I always have) but it no longer will record midi notes. When I try to record a track using a virtual instrument it plays back while I'm recording and I can see certain data being recorded (velocity, pitch bend, etc...) but no notes. The controller plays the virtual instruments perfectly but it will not record midi note data. I have tried removing the device and adding it again, rebooting the program and the system, tinkering with midi settings and everything I can imagine but I can't make any sense of it. Please tell me there is a simple solution that I am overlooking.

HELP !?!?!???

If you can record everything - but - midi notes, that suggests some kind of filtering or some other larger issue.  When you run into midi issues like that, open View > Midi Monitor and view the incoming data in real time and also look at the arrange instrument track in record and monitor to see if it's metering when you play notes.   If it is doing both things, the data should be recorded.

We assume that there's not a NoteFX Input Filter plugin on the track or something similar that's filtering out note ranges.

Look carefully at the note messages in the Midi Monitor to see what they are, to make sure something strange is not going on like the notes being transposed out of range of the instrument.  If you continue to experience this issue, make a support ticket so that a support rep can look closer at it and try to find a solution.
