I understand from reading the manual that it’s not possible to freeze a track with an external effect, unless the effect is an insert. What I really want to do is freeze the mono guitar track and the external effect so that they can be panned separately in the mix. Of course, I also want to free up the external effect for use on other tracks. This is is easy to do with a mixing console - the effect can be returned on a separate track from the original track (but the effect track would need to be recorded on a separate track, which is what I want to do here…) I have used Cubase for years, but am relatively new to Cubase 7. Am I think about the problem in the wrong way, or am I missing something? Any help/thoughts would be appreciated.
