Cubase Pro 8.5.20 under windows 7 Pro 64 bit, intel i7, 16 Gb.
audio interface: RME Madiface USB + Ferrofish A16mkII + RME ADI8-Pro (= 24 analog I/O)
midi interface: Motu MicroLite
external effects (hardware outboards) DO appear and work well as inserts in the track edit window, but DO NOT appear within the inserts available in the track automation panel, so that I cannot automate them.
Any other internal VST effect appear in the panel and can be automated but NOT the external effects.
What’s the issue?
What do I need to do ?
