Cubase 7 & SSL Nucleus

Hi Everyone

Is anyone here using C7 with the Nucleus?

My particular question is around the loading of the standard C7 plug-ins and VSTs (including 3rd party ones…in particular Kontakt).

If you have an audio track open can you programme the Nucleus to insert (for example) ‘Reverence’ on the track and then control it and its presets via the Soft Keys and Vpots? Similalrly if you have an instrument track can you programme the Nucleus to open Halion or Kontakt and then control them?

I have to admit to knowing very little about protocols; I currently use Eucon with and MC Mix, MC Control and MC Transport…would using other protocols as demanded with the Nucleus restrict me?

Many thanks as always.
