Hey, so I’m considering purchasing cubase as my go to DAW for the studio, and I’m using the elements trial (8.5). I’m looking to do something kinda specific and I can’t tell if its doable or not, and hopefully I can get a good answer on this -
I’m looking to route midi from one VST to another vst or midi track. My specific use case goes like this -
Maschine VSTi loaded up in one track -
Other VST plugin - massive… reaktor… aka a synth or a drum machine
a midi track that just sends midi out to an external out - a drum machine or other physical rack mount synth.
Maschine has groups and “sounds” that can send midi data out on seperate midi channels. I want to be able to group “a” set to midi channel output on 2, group “b” sends to 3, and so on.
How do I have the other VST plugins only accept midi in on single channels from the maschine VST?
I see I can set the midi input for those other tracks to the Maschine VST - I have done this, the only issue is that I can’t figure out how to get the synth VSTs to accept midi from only 1 channel only. (AKA both synths receive midi from all the channels that come out of the maschine VST which obviously just sounds like a big mess)
In Reaper I have been able to do exactly this where the synth vst track has a receive set to the maschine, and then further a little drop down box that lets me select what midi channel that receive accepts- I just don’t like other things about reaper that I am enjoying about cubase.
Long > short : How do I make a track receive midi from a specific channel and that channel only ?
