as for moving track order directly in mixconsole,i saw a topic where helge says its not yet implemented which means they are going to do it i future i guess.
as for the subject. the midi channel
as nothing to do with the actual audio output
signal of that vsti.
think the vsti in rack as an hardware synth, u use the midi track
to sequence(record the midi info) and that synth(or vsti) has also other audio output
that goes to audio channel to hear it.
on the other hand Instrument Track
is combined, u can record midi to it and also the audio output is there, the disadvantage is of course that is limited for one voice/output. so u cant use for example record/use more then 1 channel in multi timbral vsti as kontakt. see here the differences.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4VxEZrGltU
Thanks for the explanation, i used vst5 score for so long and jumped ship throughout the sx series, then dived in at Cubase 5 so must have missed some glaringly obvious changes. I was using those outputs for automation, didn't register they would serve to reorder but when you put it like that its obvious

Were you trying to move them somewhere other than the Project Window?
Hugh i was trying to reorder project Midi channels instead of the ones inside of Vst Instruments. So in the image below i thought i could just reorder the channels outside of the vst instruments folder - my main sequenced stuff - spics/stacs/drums/synths etc.http://imageupper.com/i/?S0200010080011 ... 7543684452
I would find that way of doing it far quicker and cleaner, especially considering you can't rename the VST Instrument instances (have to count through 50/60 channels that all say kontakt!). I noticed you can move them but it would be nice for those outputs to be combined (like instrument tracks) for a cleaner UI. Although i can imagine some cons aswell as the pros to that.
