Possible "External FX" remedy for Studio 4
This is a quick-fix rememdy for the "External FX" problem we'd mentioned a few postings ago regarding Cubase Studio 4:
Insert a mixer inbetwen the Output of the outboard and the Input of the recording hardware (in our case, a MOTU Traveler). This way, you'll be able to monitor the settings changes in real time, rather than in stages, after they've been recorded. It isn't a perfect solution (the mixer will impart its own sound onto the outboard return signal), but it should save you some grief.
