I’ve used external effects in Cubase for the past few months with great success. I typically group my Drums and then use a send on that dry channel to route a signal to a new group channel that is running an 100% wet external reverb unit on the insert. I call that channel “Drums - Reverb.” That way, I can have my dry drums on one fader and slowly blend in my external reverb on another channel.
I do the same with compression - I guess people call that the NYC Compression technique.
That setup was working just fine, but now the send for the reverb on the Drum Group is actually being heard on the Drum Group channel - the same channel that is sending it to the “Drums - Reverb” channel.
So, I’m hearing same reverb on the dry “Drums” channel AND the “Drums - Reverb” Channel. I can pull down the fader on the “Drums - Reverb” channel and reduce the amount of Reverb, but the dry Drums channel still has reverb on it. The only way to eliminate that reverb is to turn it off on the dry “Drums” channel is to turn off the send
It’s driving me nuts trying to track down the issue.
