Virtual instrument shows levels on output but record captures no audio

I can successfully record audio through my Audient two-channel device and Presonus Studio One Artist.  I am trying to add some shaker sounds to a bossa nova style song and want to use the virtual instrument "Salsa Kit" in Presence/Instruments/Percussion.  I watched the how-to video on recording a virtual instrument several times and created a track by dragging and dropping as instructed.  When I click on the virtual keyboard I get levels on the Presence main, main out, and can hear it on the headphones.  Problem is that when I record that track there are no levels on input and thus, no recording.

Well, this is an instrument track, so you will not record actual audio, but rather MIDI events.

Do you mean the MIDI events are not recorded?

I'm sure you checked whether the track was armed before hitting record ;-)
