Looks a little complicated, but I’m sure it becomes routine after a while. I’ll look again, I didn’t see a trial.
Since making the OP, I got to thinking … I’ve heard that Cubase loads all the plug-ins for a track onto a single core. If I start chaining them, I wonder if they would still be allocated to that single core, potentially causing performance issues.
Do you (or anyone) know anything about that? I guess that’s just theory, and in practice it all works fine … (?).
