experiencing the same thing… been messing with it for three solid days but still no results…not a massive amount of help on the forum (had some and really appreciate it), I think most users tried it had no success and just leave it. I have joined quite a few Cubase groups on FB and have yet to hear from anyone who has actually used it successfully
I use both, but using Source Elements much less now. My reqs maybe a little different to yours. Recording 8 plus tracks of drum mics and importing the hi res wavs from the performers system is not possible with Source Elements. With VST Connect Pro, its a relative breeze. I’ve rarely had issues since getting my head around setup, which did take some time and perseverance, but considering the times we’re in, it has proven well worth it.
