I understand the principles of a bus… I guess I am still a little confused as to how to use them.
I have the Steinberg UR22 MK II. I will be going directly into this, through Cubase AI 8, and using the effects within this software post-tracking. Initially, I have no plan to use external MIDI, or any external effects or rackmounts or anything.
So, will I need still to set buses? Is there a default setting that already takes care of this?
I noticed in the tutorial videos, the dude creates certain buses for ROOM or whatever… Do I need to do this for BASS, GUITAR, VOCAL, setting each line-in and out? Like, every instrument? Or just every instrument where I use external effects/rackmounts?
Can I simply ‘add a track’ and know that unless I have special requirements, I needn’t bother with setting buses? If I do not add a bus, will I be unable to use the effects within the software?
I will be multi-tracking, creating (hopefully - am soon to attempt this) a drum track (from the software), bass on top, guitars, and so on… No recording mic and line at the same time.
If you could help, that would be great as I am drowning in info.
