I’ve been pulling my hair out trying to figure this out, so I ask you for help.
I’m trying to do the simple task of running a signal out from Cubase into a series of effect pedals and back in. I’ve set up the routing in VST connections and everything seems to be jolly good, but for some reason I can’t get the signal from my softsynth to go out to the mono output I’ve selected, even though it’s routed that way. If I set output back to stereo out it works… sort of. But that introduces another headache:
The second part of my problem is that awful feedback loop, I can’t seem to find a way to monitor and tweak my effects without getting feedback. I’m starting to wonder if it’s even possible at all… that was the sole reason for my upgrade. I’ve tried direct monitoring on and off. I also tried using the fx sends, but I can’t find a way to turn the reverb off. If I could, that would solve my problem. All I get is a wet reverb signal.
Is there a clever way to set this up so that it works? Out from cubase, into external effect and back in, while allowing me to listen to what I record in realtime.
