I’m using Cubase Elements 7 and have cubase running on a laptop that is installed in my guitar processing rack. i have a number of vsts installed and am using a single Cubase group track for each type of effect. I have the outs of these group channels daisy-chained much like one would do with devices on a pedal board and then in each channel I place an instance of one or more vsts as inserts. So for example, in the Wah track i have an Amplitube CryBaby vst as an insert and in the phaser track i have a Guitar Rig 5 phaser vst as the insert, and so on down line with Wah output to Phaser and Phaser output to Compression and Compression output to Distortion and so on.
Thus for each sound i come up with, there are multiple vsts each with its own individual setting that contribute to that sound. i would like to somehow treat this entire set as a single patch and would like to switch from patch to patch with program messages or some such midi message that can be sent from my Line 6 foot controller.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how i might accomplish capturing and saving sets of vst activations and vst parameters involving multiple vsts under one identifiable object that can be activated via midi messages. Is there a way to do this in Cubase?
Thanks for any assistance anyone can provide.
