I’ve discovered a bug in routing FX tracks and Groups in Cubase 8.0.3. Would love to know if this bug still exists in 8.5 as I know they have changed the creating of tracks, but here is the working method for replicating this bug in Cubase 8.0.3.
Goal - to create a parallel processing track and have all tracks outputted to an instrument group. For my example I’m going to use vocals.
- Have your vocals on an audio track.
- Create an FX track, load your compressor.
- Create a “vocal level” Group track so you can control the volume of the whole signal on one fader (and further process as needed)
- Send both the vocal audio track and your vocal FX track to this Group.
BUG - you will notice though you can send your audio to this “vocal level” to this group track, you cannot send your FX track output to this track.
Work around - you must create the group track first to be able to route your FX tracks. This obviously creates challenges as I sometimes need to add group tracks for summing after my FX tracks, and if I do this for whatever reason I cannot route my FX tracks output to any group track created after the FX track!
PLEASE fix this bug for us Cubase 8.0 users! This really is a show stopping bug as I do not know how I am suppose to route my FX track to my new groups and do not wish to delete the FX track as its full of automation!! Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!!
