I have a large number of hardware synths and not enough inputs on my audio interface to handle them so I use mixers that send stereo pairs to my interface. I have been using this setup with a different DAW but would like to get it working with Cubase. The setup works like this…
- Multiple synths are plugged into an analog mixer and routed out the main mix to a stereo pair on my audio interface.
- I have a midi channel going to each of my synths so can select which synth I am recording.
- I only want to record the audio from the synths and not the midi performance.
- I use a new audio track, attached to the input channel from the mixer, to capture the performance of the synth I am playing.
But here is the problem…
I only want to record the audio track, not the midi track.
So my question is… How do I send midi to a synth without recording the performance??
Hope I have explained the setup clearly!!
Any ideas would be appreciated.
