Hi all, intriguing question for anyone who might be interested…
I’m thinking of getting Cubase Elements to use on a spare PC I have…
My main set up is a Macbook Pro using Cubase 8, which is going to be the ‘Master’… this computer has a Focusrite Pro40 as the main audio interface, and very nice it is too. But I’d like to be able to sync it to my PC (the ‘Slave’), and run a second ‘lite’ version of Cubase, mainly for use with VSTis, but also using the VST effects. The issue I have is spending further wads of cash on another ‘big’ sound card.
So, my question is this… if I get a 7.1 surround sound card, would be recognised as a card with 4 stereo outputs? I’m not fussed about inputs, I just want some output separation going into my mixers for incidental synths and so on.
I can’t seem to find the answer anywhere, but I’ve sure found a lot of answers about other surround sound issues that don’t help, having been searching for a few hours today!
Any help would be very much appreciated!
