Cubase 7 Elements


I have a number of questions about Cubase 7 Elements, which I am hoping you could help with please?

  1. Is there a sampler that is similar to the esx24 sampler from logic, that will allow you to use your own audio samples over a midi keyboard? If not, is there a Cubase version that does.
  2. Is there a way to add effects to midi tracks?
  3. Is there a way to automate effects such as distortion?
    Many thanks,
