I am at a loss just now. I have Cubase 5 running on the Synergy AW700 music workstation interfaced with the Yamaha 01x digital mixer. Being slightly old school this equipment is a new adventure. My problem is that even though I believe I have followed the install procedure for the Vst plug-ins to the letter I cannot access them in Cubase 5. All the plug-ins (Steinbergs own & the VST plug-ins that came with 01x) only appear in the menus in faded grey text (not bold black) and connot be opened . I have installed the plug-ins as follows.
- installed the Plug-ins.
- additionally installed the plug-ins into the steinberg folder.
- Moved all the plug-ins into ths ‘VST Plug-ins’ folder within the Cubase folder (they all seem to be there).
- Finally I have checked that the plug-ins are in the table of items in the ‘Plug-in information’ window (in the devices menu) and that they have the tick in the ‘A’ list on the extreme left of the window.
What am I doing wrong? What have I not done that I should have? Can anybody help?
One last problem since updating Cubase5 with 5.5.2 update the abilty to apply a strong colour to the ruler track seems to have been removed from the preferences. Any idea as to how to overcome this?
