I’ve run Cubase SL2.0 for years and have become accustomed to four “sub” MIDI/audio channels that accompany each MIDI channel automatically. I never had a real need to add more so don’t know if it’s possible to do so. Cubase 6 doesn’t seem to work this way; once I open up Groove Agent 3 anyway.
When I open up a project in Cubase 6 that was created in Cubase SL 2, it comes up with the main MIDI channel and 4 sub audio channels; just like it was. (first picture) However, once I put Groove Agent 3 into the VST Instrument rack, 3 of those channels go away and I’m left with only 1, (second picture).
This is a drag because while GA3 has12 available outputs, they’re of no use without these additional audio channels to run them through.
I have GA3 configured to use 6 of these outputs, (kick =1, snare=2, toms=3, hi-hat=4, ride=5, crash=6), but only what is sent out of channel 1 gets heard because of this. The only way to hear them is to send them all out of channel 1 but then I loose the custom COMP & EQ settings that are available for each of the 12 outputs in GA3.
I hope I explained this well enough and also hope there’s something simple I’m missing. I know there’s much I need to learn in my move up 4 versions of Cubase. Does anybody know how to add these additional “sub” tracks under the main MIDI track?
