I like to use vst plugins for my external Hardware.
I like to use my inputs on the soundcard to insert Vst plugins on my hardware - mainly EQ’s and Dynamics. I have heard there’s a way Cubase 6 is going to compensate automatically for latency issues. The how is what i like to find out.
DAW - 2,8GHz 4 Core i7 PC, 12GB RAM, 2x RME Multiface II
Mixer - Tascam 2600 MK II
External Instruments: EMU Emax SE, AKAI S950, Roland Juno 106
I like to use internal Vst Instruments all mixed together on Channels 1 & 2
The Samplers and Synth go to Input 3-16 and out on the same Channels
I yet don’t know how to set up external instruments, since i haven’t found out how to specify midi channels for them.
I imagine it must work like this: Cubase controls all the midi outs, so, to make up for latency it simply sends the notes for the external hardware earlier than the notes for Vst instruments, depending on the delay my Vst plugins on the inserts generate. I have heard cubase can send out a test tone to measure this latency and then compenstae for this autmatically.
Am i correct? Can anyone guide or a t least point me in the right direction?
Thanks in advance!
