Thank you Lukas,
Well, I actually have an MXR (169) CARBON COPY PEDAL which I use for my RHODES PIANO. MONO IN and MONO OUT. Looks like it offers MONO IN and MONO OUT (which is of course fine for the MOOG). It has REGEN, MIX and DELAY dials with a MOD [modulation] button thrown in).
Not sure how clean a SIGNAL who be produced from the MOOG thru the CC to CUBASE?
As you know, if I RECORD with a hardware pedal then I am stuck with the recording (unless I also record a DRY version alongside every PASS).
Also, I did not really want to have to hook up the pedal every time I wanted a CC FX (though I admit it is not such a massive inconvenience).
Finally, I was wondering if the hardware model will ALWAYS be BETTER than the VST version simple because the former is the genuine article!?
