Hey folks, hoping theres something silly I'm missing here:

I have EZ Drummer running as VST in Studio One 4 Pro, all latest versions, works great as plugin but I am trying to improve my songwriting workflow.  I would like to be able to "play" the drum kit on the screen with my mouse, as I run through a loop, and record the midi events of my "clicking" - hoping to see MIDI events corresponding to the individual drums or cymbals.  Essentially I want to use the on-screen user interface as a MIDI controller.  I have MIDI Out enabled in EZD but I am not seeing any activity in MIDI Monitor, nor can I seem to capture anything.  

Am I trying to do something EZD just doesn't support, or do I have something setup wrong in Studio One or EZD?  Anyone else doing this?

Thanks in advance

OK so now I feel kinda dumb.  But also a bit confused.

Bottom line, if I set the Instrument Track input to "EZ drummer", the MIDI events record perfectly.  Solved.

BUT...if the I set the track input to "All Inputs" (which one would assume includes EZ Drummer, as well as the other choices listed)...then no MIDI events are recorded.  Whats the story?
