I’ve seen alot of producers using the F11 feature of Cubase 7. Which is “VST instruments”.
I struggle alot with this as I think it is kind of messy to have all synths inserted in the VST instruments.
Since it creates 1 MIDI track for the midi notes to be triggered and 1 output track and 1 other track that is connected to this instrument in particular. I find it VERY messy to find the “output” channel of the track to insert effects and such.
What do you guys use and do you have any recommendations of organizing it better? Do you use F11 or just normal “insert software instrument”, for normal synths like massive, sylenth1 etc?
I understand that F11 is very nice for instruments such as Kontakt5 where u can automatically set multiple outputs this way.
Same is with automations, where do you put your automations tracks? do you have it under the track that is automated, or do you put it far up in the project or far down? I find these 2 areas very messy in cubase.
Any tips and tricks is highly appreciated.
