Adding multiple external effects in Cubase

Postby Will_m » Tue Aug 14, 2018 11:31 pm

Is there a way to add multiple instances of an external effect or instrument in Cubase?

Currently I have my Roland SE-02 set-up as an external instrument but I can only have one track at a time. If I try and add another instrument track the SE-02 option no longer appears in my list of VSTI's.

The same also happens with my external effects sends I can only set them as an insert once and can't use them on any other track until I remove the effect from the previous track.

You can't add a hardware effect more than once - it wouldn't really make any sense if you could.

But you can add your hardware effect as an insert in an FX Track (for send effects), or a Group Track (for insert effects) and send/route as many sources as you like to those Tracks - problem solved.
