I am new to Cubase Artist 6 (upgrade from C-LE4) and am trying to figure out how the VST instrument rack works.
I loaded Groove Agent One into the rack and enabled two outputs (GAone1, GAone2). I then created two midi tracks one with snare sounds, one with hihat. I directed both to Groove Agent one as the output device. When I do this I get a new tab in the midi track inspector that has the name ‘Groove Agent’ . If I select that tab I can see several sub-tabs one of which says ‘Output’ and allows me to select the GAone1 and GAone2 outputs I enabled.
I directed the snare track to GAone1 and the hihat to GAone2. When playing the project I expected to see the output from each of the two midi tracks on the GAone1 and GAone2 channels in the mixer, but they both play through GAone1 and can’t be mixed independently. I can go into Groove Agent and direct the output of the snare and HH pads to ST1 and ST2 and then the midi tracks play separately through the GAone1 and GAone2 outputs, but I did not think that should be necessary.
How does the ‘Output’ sub-tab in the VST insturment tab in the inspector work? What is it used for? The example of this aspect of the VST instrument on p.208 of the manual does not show this tab.
