Well, following this thread : https://www.steinberg.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=24095 , I wanted to test how much latency I was getting between recording a MIDI part and its rendering via the dummy bus way and I got strange results… What I did :
- I created an output bus in the VST connection window, not connected and named ‘VST Bus’
- I routed a VSTi (True Pianos, here) to the VST Bus
- I created an audio track with the VST Bus connected to its input.
On the first case, I record on both tracks, playing few notes with True Pianos, which is like rendering the VSTi to audio as I’m playing it (Cubase_VSTBusRendering_Online.jpg).
On the second one, I render what has been previously recorded in the instrument track, after deleting the previous recorded audio event (Cubase_VSYBusRendering_Offline.jpg).
Could someone explain the rather obvious difference ?
Not a biggy, but I would like a technical enlightment about this…
