Greeting to everyone.
I used Cubase 5 long long time ago. I remember I could assign a VST instrument to a midi file track. I bought Cubase Element today. It is different. I couldn’t figure out how to add a VST instrument to a midid file track the old way.
This is what I did.
I imported a midi file, cubase asked if I wanted to open a new project, I said yes. then a project was set up. I saw my separate midi file tracks. Before anything else, I saw the inspector was missing (I think I used to add instruments in cubase 5 via the inspector if I am not wrong). Then I tried to assign a VST instrument. After a long while of trying, the best I could do was to right click on a midi file track, choose Add Instrument. A separate instrument track was added below the intended midi file track. Then I drag that midi file track into the instrument track, that worked. I think there must be a way to assign a VST instrument to a midi file track without creating another track and dragging the midi file track into it. I am used to use GarageBand. This is much more complicated. I watched some videos. People are talking about this midi channel input, that midi channel output, how to route the midi channel, the kind of stuff I have no clue of at all. In GarageBand, after watching a few videos, I got it.
Please let me know how to do this in Cubase if you can. Thank you very much.
