I hope I can explain this. I want to use one VST Instrument on 2 different tracks using 2 different presets.
I have Cubase 8 Pro, running on a new PC with an i7 sixth gen processor.
So…In my VST Instruments Panel - I have my Kontakt Player VST TWO separate times. Once with a piano synth, and a second time with a faux violin or string synth.
I have two separate VST instrument tracks. One for the Kontakt Piano Synth, another separate VST instrument track for the Kontakt String Synth.
I have two separate MIDI tracks each with different channel settings. One MIDI track has the output set to the Kontakt Piano Synth, the other MIDI track has its output settings to the Kontakt String Synth. I opened the MIDI editor for each track and penciled in or hand wrote a few different MIDI notes or messages.
The Problem:: I am not hearing both VST instruments. It seems only the first (of two) VST Instruments gets signals/and it output to the monitor speakers.
Is it possible to create - and functionally use - two separate VST Rack Instruments from one single VST software app like Kontakt, or Halion, etc. - where each instance has different presets or different sounds?
Any thoughts as to why I can’t seem to get the 2nd VST instrument track to play?
