I hate going back to remaster old Cubase mixes to find that most of the original effects plugins no longer exist or aren’t supported in current Cubase versions. I’ve blown a lot of hours just reconstructing an old mix because of this, when intended changes to the original weren’t that major. This was worst when 32bit plugins became obsolete.
Looking for a suggestion/tip for getting around this. I’ve recently been doing more rendering of tracks (and saving those in the project Audio folder). I’d prefer to keep mono tracks as mono, for more re-mixing flexibility. Unfortunately, in Artist 9.5, that means capturing only the channel strip inserts, so all FX Sends (other than send settings) and Stereo Out effects are missed. The Complete Signal Path + Master FX catches everything but converts every track to stereo, resulting in files double the size of the originals, which gets significant since I always keep the original source wav files too - and kinda limits mixing options.
I’d love to know how some of you handle this.
