Getting a musical idea down as quickly as possible is an important part of the creative process. It can sometimes mean we go for the part over our preferred tone. This video demonstrates how to connect an instrument amp or external FX unit to your hardware and use Cubase and your hardware as a virtual patch bay. Once connected, you can patch your external outboard gear straight into your mix. There is always going to be a latency issue when you send a signal out through an external device and record the signal back into Cubase so Cubase has a built-in delay compensation feature which measures the time it takes to send and re-record the signal, meaning your reamped recording is always placed back in exactly the right spot. In this video we use a guitar track as an example, and patch in an external amplifier and set up the delay compensation. It sounds complicated, but in real life, it is ridiculously easy.
We hope you find this video entertaining and useful. If you like what you see, please leave a comment and tell us what you think. Thank you.
