struggling with external compressor

Hi, I have an SPL track one which I use for tracking, I would like to also use it as an external fx with Cubase 7.5.30 but just cannot get it to work, I have set it up as an external fx within Cubase and can see it in the insert dropdown menu but I am very confused with the in out stuff…I have a Yamaha N8 and have tried (i think) every possible variation of in out and can never get a signal into the SPL :frowning:

I use the SPL for some mild compression whilst tracking and would like to use it to further compress after tracking…maybe this isn’t possible :blush:

can any of the clever producers on this forum help please :slight_smile:

thank you, Kevin
