I have just started with Cubase and am looking for some help; Maybe this has already been discussed, If So, please send me a link to the existing thread.
I want to be able to Jam with my Hardware synths, in order to do this, i would like to be able to play my HW synths on a Midi Channel and then be able to add 3rd Party VSTs [not the default ones listed in Cubase] to the same MIDI channel so that as I play the HW Synth, the VST should be able to process the sound in realtime.
Can any one please advise on how I can go about doing this?
If the sound/audio is coming out of your HW synth and not going into the inputs of the soundcard and through the Cubase software the audio effects like reverbs and delays will not be available and will not work.
The midi that you are recording is just computer data that will play back the synth part of your HW synth. You can add midi effects on a midi track but not audio inserts.
If you use your HW synth to play one of VST synths that are part of the computer system this is a different matter and adding effects to the sound is easy. Open up an instrument track, select the vst and the insert slots will show up in both the inspector and the mixer.

Thanks for the response; leave aside the MIDI data and the VSTs.
The Audio is definitely being routed into my Audio Interface and also into Cubase. What i am trying to achieve is to be able to use an effects VST such as Glitch or EFFECTRIX on a track that is getting audio from the HW synth. so that i can see the effect in realtime as i play the HW Synth.
I just want to be able to add all the EFFECT VSTs on the audio coming out of the HW Synth [into Cubase] in order to Jam live.
