Ok, this is really a Cubase 5 observation, but I expect the same is true in 6… consider this a question as to whether this has changed in 6, I guess, since my copy of 6 should be shipping tomorrow
I just realized that you can’t assign MIDI to a VST plug on the output of a VSTi instrument, whether it’s a VSTi output channel in the mixer or an instrument track. This seems odd. I discovered this while trying the Stutter Edit demo from Izotope.
Of course, the workaround is to create a group track and put Stutter Edit on it and route the VSTi output channel to that group track. But it seems like a pointless extra track to work around a limitation that doesn’t seem to be necessary.
Steinberg: can you comment
