I had similar issue when I first got bias fx 2
Here’s what fixed for me… sounds awesome now: Which is why I’m posting to help perhaps a newbee … I Worked out by trial n error ,and (was fairly new at cubase at the time also…so didn’t fully understand routing yet. ). So hope this helps . Bias fx 2 is awesome once up n running.
Create audio track (mono) for main guitar input.
Create a stereo fx track that connects to this track.
(Ie: the out on the mono input guitar track routes to the fx track you created. )
Now insert - bias fx 2 as an effect insert on the stereo fx channel. You just created.
You’ll record parts on the input track . But essentially monitor out the fx track. (When adjusting fader vol etc) … (better practice too as more control later in mixing)
Why this works: the output of the standalone sounds great n full… because it’s stereo.
When u run on / thru a stereo fx track … in cubase - it will sound the same. As standalone . (Maybe even better- but that might be just me- feeling that)
It won’t sound good if you run bias fx as an insert on a mono cubase audio track. (As you’ll miss the stereo output bias fx creates)
I don’t think great either just to create a stereo audio track… as the actual guitar input is mono. So it’s about correct chain and routing .
Create mono audio track - (guitar part records to this. )
Output this track to a cubase fx track that is stereo (think that’s true by default / but double check)
Insert bias as an effect on the “cubase fx” track you created) .
Make sure you turn on monitor for both. (Should be automatic when you unmute or solo the main audio mono track you record the part too. If they are routed together)
Repeat for all guitar tracks if you have multiple guitar parts … Eg: solo and rhythm
Ie: you may have multiple instances of bias fx running .- When recording or tracking.
All will be good , hope helps. I generally have about 4/5 on the go in a project. Now and again I get a crash… as perhaps a bit heavy on the cpu. ? But you could bounce /freeze tracks if you run into that issue.
Definitely a Great plug in. In my view.
Hope that’s helps someone starting out with it.
