Thanks for the reply. Sorry I don’t know how to use the quote function yet so I just copied some of your responses which I have follow-up questions to manually
“It means that VST Connect got no more communication for more than 10 seconds.”
Do you have any idea what causes this to happen, as there is not problem with our connections. Is it router related, or cubase related, both, or whatever?
“There are small pan controls in the VST Connect mixer.”
I will check these pans, but still I suspect that this is something else, more a result of the some kind of stereo signal being sent, and therefore things being panned hard right and hard left, and thus causing the guitar to be in only one speaker.
“Sends are called sends because they send the channel signal to the selected destination. If you send to the Performer cue, the Performer will hear that signal. Sending to your own Monitor is useless as this is usually done by the faders.”
I did not talk about sending to my own monitor, I don’t understand what you mean with this. regardless back to my original question. When I have the mix console up I will enable the cue sends and turn up the cue send for the vst connect on all channels, however it’s possible to do this on the “stereo out” as well ( my master fader) but wondering how this work, Im thinking, that if I would like to give my performer the same listening as me, I can raise ONLY the cue send of my master, as this would feed him everything? because wouldn’t it be feeding him double signals if I raise the cue sends of the individual channels that I want him to hear, and then raise the cue send for my master as well?
It controls what the Performer hears.
I get the feeling that you only refer to the fact that the cue sends controls what the performer hears, I know that, but I was refering to the monitoring of what the performer is playing, as this is much more complicated that his. Because many more factors come into play here, first of all if my performer uses direct monitoring, then this is out of my control, second aspect is that if the performer uses reverb and inserts the performer can hear this without me having any cue send turned on, this tells me there is more aspects to this than only the setting of my cue send, so then finally back to my questions, how does the cue send for my performer track affect my performers listening in relation to all this?
“You are probably missing the fact that for the Performer channels you can select the source (of the Performers’ audio interface) on the top of the Performer Monitor mixer. I suggest that you read the manual.”
I will look more into this, thanks. I have been checking these things out, however then other factors come in between. I have read the manual, and find it lacking some things, however it’s also the aspect of needing to read it several times to understand things on a deeper level. will check these aspects out again.
“We keep repeating that you should use the “Create VST Connect” function on an empty project and not mess with settings that you don’t understand, and if you do nevertheless, if you change something and it doesn’t provide the desired outcome, change it back to what it was set to before. This is not only true for VST Connect.”
I know you keep repeating this, and I honestly become a bit confused each time, since, according to me, it’s so obvious that you need to do alot more things to get it working. for me, you need to set cue sends, and turn on the monitor outputs in the vst connection’s studio tab, to just enable listening for my performer and me. Then there is the aspect of setting delay compensation to get a steady connection, and the list goes on. Nothing wrong with that, I am happy to do everything that is required, but saying that all you need to do is to use “create vst connection” is simply not true, as far as I understand this now.
thanks again for all the help. Really looking forward to the update which hopefully has insert possibilities ( guitar distortion) with the option to record clean signal, working even on the ipad version. (please)
