Now that you’re clued up on MixConsole and insert effects within Steinberg’s Cubase, it’s time to take a look at send effects. Instead of applying an effect directly to your instrument or audio track, Cubase easily lets you route a track to a send effect for more control over your processing – as you would with a hardware mixing desk.
In this Cubase tutorial, Bruce Aisher demonstrates the utility of send effects and why you would opt for a send effect over an insert effect. You’ll learn how to set up send effect tracks in Cubase, how to route multiple instruments and audio tracks to the send, and how to define the level of the effect. You’ll also understand why it’s best practice to set up effects as fully wet.
We’re starting off with the basics and gradually move into more advanced and creative techniques, as in our Logic Tips and Ableton Live Tutorials series. Subscribe to our newsletter and YouTube Channel for weekly updates on new videos and content.
