Hey, long time Cubase user, first time poster…
Just learned a cool trick of building an analog or tape delay unit in pro tools where you create a bus and insert a delay unit with no feedback and a decent LPF and modulation, followed by some sort of distortion plugin (such as the sans amp plugin). Next, send the the bus back into itself (just a bit!) to create your “feedback”. Every time it feeds back, the sound degenerates more and more, giving us that character we’ve come to seek out every now and then.
I’m trying to recreate it in Cubase 6, however I can’t seem to get an FX to send to itself, or back to a group, than back to the FX or back to a this, then to a that, then back to the FX to create that [controlled] feedback loop.
Now, we all know how dangerous this feature can be and why Steinberg went through the trouble of putting this feedback prevention system in place, but can’t we make that an option in the preferences panel, which is enabled by default, to disable this feedback prevention system so that the brave adventurous users can route signals back into themselves?
Aside from that, does anyone know of round about way of getting around this system? I absolutely love Cubase and love to keep my entire workflow and production within cubase. I find it’s the only DAW that works without really complaining about some stupid audio interface issue, disowning your external dsp based plugins or magically disappear on you in the middle of working, like some other DAW’s do. However the more I work in Bro Tools, and working with it’s great routing and few other cool things, I feel like taking the mixing process to there and do all the production and editing in Cubase.
