VST Editor manual or know how with Cubase?
« on: July 01, 2017, 04:40:25 PM »
Hi, please could you explain how to use the VST editor with a DAW and configure it with Cubase 7, no manual for this. I know how to use the standalone, but the VST has no midi in/outs on it. I've got the VST installed and working but not configured.

No, there's no manual.
Configuration should be simple, make midi from Cubase go to the preenfm2 hardware, make midi out from the preenfm2 go to cubase.
Disable midi thru in preenfm2. Make the preenfm2 sends and receives NRPN.
Becarefull to midi loop.

I don't have Cubase so i cannot give more details.

Aha, Im only using midi in. I thought I would only be sending messages from the DAW to the hardware only, I'll see if I can suss it..

Not sure how it works in Cubase.
It's not displayed in the list of compatible DAW so i don't even know whether it works.

VST midi out => preenfm2 hardware. As soon as it's plugged, any knob turned on the VST should propagate to the preenfm2 display.
preenfm2 midi NRPN out => VST : turn a preenfm2 knobs, should show up in the VST.

In adition to that, any move on the VST or the hardware should be recordable as a DAW automation.
Any VST Knobs automation should propagate to both the VST and the hardware when played.
