Default Is there a way to see that reaper is receiving incoming midi data?

Was working on a track last night. I changed a looping section or switched tracks. Afterword i wasn't getting any sound from my vst from my midi keyboard. The keyboard didn't disconnect the track was armed and monitoring was on.

Is there a way in Reaper to see that i am receiving midi?

With the correct midi input set on a track and record enable on there is a red flashing in the meters showing midi input.

You can see it in this gif.

Sometimes if I am not getting sound from a plugin, but I can see red in the meter, like in the gif above, it takes me a while to realize that I am just pressing keys or pads that aren't triggering anything. It happens with the drum plugin, where a lot of keys don't trigger any sounds, after I have changed the octave of the controller while playing on a different plugin.
