I am starting to use the External Effects Bus, a little new at it. I am able to create the bus but then I find that it only works on a single insert of a single channel. Meaning I can only plug one channel into it. If I try to add another channel, as I open the Ext Efx Bus within the channel insert window, I find the item greyed out - not available. This doesn’t seem right.
If I had and analog equivalent, it would be a a patchbay going to a mono effect, in this case a comp. With the patchbay I could plug in as many channels as the patchbay could handle. Am I talking apples to oranges?
Here’s what I want to do: Create a mono External Effects Bus and run my kick and my bass guitar tracks into it. And on occassion, I would like to run the whole drum kit sub mix into it. Is this not possible? My mixer has 16 outs so I am ready to roll here. Is it possible that Steiny wants me to create multiple Ext Efx Bus’s and use one for each channel? Is this even possible? Can I assign the same physical channel out to multiple DAW channels in Cubase?
The manual is light (but not casting light) on this subject. It says I can create a Ext Efx Bus and where to find it but not much more. Is anybody besides me into going external with an effect? Thanks for any help.
