Hopefully I’m going to describe a problem that is familiar to you all, and hopefully some genius is going to be able to tell me how to solve it.
The problem is simply - I want to get audio (and MIDI) into a version of Maschine (the VST) which will allow me to use multiple outputs for audio i.e. more than one audio output from the Maschine VST. Sound simple enough? Well, it’s not.
The configuration I have at the moment is an FX track, which is a group track with Maschine inserted as the FX version of the VST (Maschine FX) on the first insert slot. This allows to do the following:
- It will allow me to route MIDI into Maschine FX
- It will allow me to route audio into Maschine FX (by being routed to the group channel’s bus)
- It WILL NOT allow me to use multiple outputs from the Maschine FX
If anyone… ANYONE knows how to access multiple outputs from an insert, I will be forever grateful. As it stands, there is only one output which then comes out at the group track, which is singular. Everything that comes out of Maschine FX comes out of that bus.
Why is this an issue? Here’s why - Cubase will not allow you to route audio to a VST Instrument. It just won’t. Case in point, if you add Maschine as VST rack instrument, it will allow me to do the following:
- It will allow me to route MIDI into Maschine
- It WILL NOT allow me to route audio into Maschine - only MIDI is allowed into the instrument
- It will allow me to use multiple outputs
We all know you can’t get audio into a VST instruments, right? Is there no way around this?
I need to route both MIDI and audio into Maschine because I want to be able to put inserts on two different outputs, one output being used for the rhythm programming going into Maschine, the other being used to process a guitar track recorded into Maschine. Clearly I don’t want both signals (rhythm and guitar) being processed through the one output, because I need to mix them separately. Yet, I can’t do it because Cubase won’t let me route an audio signal into a VST instrument (NOT through the stereo bus) which would then go through the instrument and come out of the stereo bus.
It’s so frustrating that I can’t come up with a workaround. Anyone know how to help?
