I would like to apply EQ/FX to a MIDI track for an EastWest Symphonic Orchestra double bass patch (instrument). The double basses are one of a few patches on an instance of EastWest’s Play (VST rack instrument). I seem to only get the option of applying MIDI FX when I click on the Insert Rack for the above track. But I can access the audio FX (EQ, reverb, compression, etc.) for that entire instance of Play in the Inspector.
Do I have to treat each instance of a VST rack instrument as a group track and apply the same EQ/FX to all the instruments on it (accessed on different MIDI channels)? Is there a way to apply Audio EQ/FX to only one instrument (patch) on the VST rack instrument (say the basses)?
BTW, can the forum moderator ask the Steinberg engineers to use a different term for an instance of VST rack instruments, say “sample player” so it is not confused with the actual instruments (patches) that are loaded on that instance of the rack instrument?
All help is appreciated.
