I am a noob to Cubase, trying to find a way to do this:
- do parallel compression on multiple drum tracks (snare, kick, toms, overheads),
- AND be able to control the amount of a drum signal going to it (as in 100% snare/kick, little bit of OH, etc)
- AND monitor the output of that compressor by itself so I can hear what it’s doing without the original track mixed in.
I tried using Sends to an FX channel, which allows the 2nd part… but I can’t get it to do the 3rd part, if I solo that channel it solos all the drum tracks… if I turn off any drum track it also disappears out of the compression channel.
I tried using groups / Direct outs, but then it sends 100% of every channel to that group.
I’m using Cubase 10 Pro. I’m sure this has probably been asked & answered, but I can’t find it anywhere. Probably because I’m not sure what words to use to get it to show up in search results.
