I want to record a stereo Fender Rhodes.
I’m running a send to a real EMT 140 plate. The send isn’t coming from Cubase, it’s done before the audio is hitting Cubase.
So, what i now want to record in Cubase is two stereo tracks. One, the dry Rhodes, the other, the full wet EMT 140.
Obviously this is easily done.
But now i’m messing around with 4 channel input buss. And i realize that if i make a “quadro” 4 channel track and use this 4 channel input as it’s source, and record, i have what looks like a 4 channel WAV file on that track (ok, it’s not really, but it acts like one).
Woah, dude, that’s super cool, now i can edit and manipulate it, but i still have the option to tweak the balance of verb to dry later on.
So now i’m wondering, this is a hack, right? Surely there’s a more official way to do this?
My main issue is that i don’t see a way to pan the fully wet part independently of the dry signal. These’s some stuff possible in the mixer, but i don’t really understand it, as the panner seems to be designed for surround or something.
And in fact i can’t pan the dry signal either, the panning seems to be fixed in a Quadro track?!
Could anyone tell me if there’s a better way to achieve what i’m trying to do?
Thanks in advance! … J
