How does Cubase see and handle an instrument track versus a MIDI track? What would be the difference between me
a) adding Halion as a VST to my project, creating 10 MIDI tracks, and routing them all to MIDI channels 1-10 using the Halion VST
b) creating 10 Instrument tracks and selecting Halion as the Virtual Instrument for each track?
In the first approach, will I be able to select a different “instrument” for each MIDI track using just the one instance of Halion as a VST? If I were to combine the approaches, would I be able to effectively include more virtual instruments in my project? For example, if the version of Cubase I have allows for 16 MIDI tracks, and 10 Instrument tracks, could I combine the approaches to include 26 different virtual instruments in my project?
Thanks for the help.
