+1000000 we need this asap!
The way the external FXs are handled right now is so frustrating… We need at least to be able to remove exclusive mode.
But a flexible external I/O plugin would be even better.
The whole Audio Connections setup needs an overhaul IMO.
What I’d really like to see is full blow ASIO Device Presets! Let me configure my whole I/O set up in a click - IO/busses, control room, EFX - anything that accesses my ASIO device - this SHOULD be made into presets;
- Multiple ASIO interfaces that need to be changed between
- Different IO setups on the same devices - Tracking/Mixing/Overdubs/Mastering etc etc
- No breaking workflow where different projects need specific setups - this all being Global today is a killer
I could go on and on about this!
Side Bar: Interesting to read that someone is using EXT EFX without any latency? My roundtrip in the DAW is 11 ms (48kHz @ 256), and my EXT EFX roundtrip to analog comps, limiter, EQs, and preamps is 18.43 ms. This is using a Mackie 1640i 16X16 Firewire interface.
I will add that recently I picked up a Motu M4 and it’s roundtrip inside the DAW is also 11 ms (48kHz @256). However… it’s latency when pinging the EXT EFX is 0 (Zero). And in fact I’m dealing with Motu for an explanation right now via a support ticket but nothing yet.
So, QUESTION: Are any of you posting here actually experiencing 0 (Zero) latency when using EXT EFX (that doesn’t exist in your DAW) or is this just an expression? If so, would you please tell me what your interface is, please, as I would like to refer this to Motu as they try to answer my concerns. Right now they are as puzzled as I am.
I have the neve 2464’s output patched into a 1073DPX insert return, but its input is connected to a separate output of an Apollo. This way I would have the option to use the 1073’s output level knob as an output fader for the comp. It would be nice if I could set up 2 external effects with different sends but with the same return in Cubase. One for the 1073 and one for the 2264.
Pleaseee make this happen!! Using a patchbay setup with cubase is a nightmare!!
