When it comes to midi recording the most of your recording is with vst instruments and some external instruments afterwards. Vst instruments are software synthesizers that we can use via midi. These instruments contain sound banks that we can choose sounds to record to a specific channel. In this post we’re about to define what kind of channels do we need to record vst instruments
In Cubase you can use the vst instruments with two different ways: The first one is by selecting a vst instrument in Vst instruments window, which is in Devices menu.
Once you select it, a window appears with empty slots. You can click in one empty slot and a window with all the available vst instruments you have, appears.
After selecting a vst instrument a new window appears that asks you if you want to create for you a midi channel.
