Hi, I’m trying to route a Lexicon PCM91 into Cubase 8.5 Pro using S/PDIF. I am connecting using a Focusrite 18i20 USB interface. I have tried using both “External Effects” and plain old “Input” and “Output” routing in the VST Connections page. Both deliver audio, but here’s what is bothering me. I can’t control the reverb return using a fader.
When I use “External Effects” and route the return to an FX Channel in the mixer, the fader does nothing.
When I use Input and Output routing, when I create a send on my lead vocal, the PCM91 return happens right there on the lead vocal channel, as if it’s an insert effect! Very strange.
I hope I’m just doing something stupid. Anyone have questions or guidance on this?
