I am working with Cubase SX3. I want to use GVI instead of GigaStudio for my VSL Horizon instruments.

How do I route the MIDI files through the Performance Tool and then into GVI (it is a virtual instrument)?

There is no option in the Performance Tool specifically. I have, for the time being, chosen one of the available MIDI out options in the Performance Tool, then set up a separate MIDI track in Cubase to reroute that signal back into Cubase (with a jumper cable) so that I can then input the signal into GVI. Here's my current solution:

VSL MIDI to VSL Performance Tool routed to Tascam 1884 MIDI out
Tascam 1884 MIDI out jumped to Tascam 1884 MIDI (with MIDI cable)
Tascam 1884 MIDI into GVI track.

This sure seems to be a roundabout way to input the signal, and I would have to set up a separate jumper track for each GVI channel.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Hi Kirk,

the way you describe is the way to go - if you want it easier, you'd have to use GS3 in stand-alone mode. I know it's inconvenient because you have to re-record your GVI midi out tracks when you change the "master" track, but alas there's no way around it.

Kind regards,
David

Thanks.

Is there an internal MIDI device that will allow me to jump the MIDI output back into the input so I can do it internally. At one point I installed the Maple MIDI to try that, but could not find any sort of a control panel where I could make adjustments.

I believe someone would have found out by now if it was possible - but you never know ...

Kind regards,

Hey.

Yes, it is possible to use it internal. I did it using the maple-midi-port.

CanĀ“t remember right now how I excactly routed it, but I can find out if you still need an answer. The project should be somewhere in my archiv.

Best regards,

Stephan

Check the user area for the instructions on getting it to work in Halion, the same thing works for GVI. You use a piece of free software called "Maple MIDI router" (google it). MIDI goes from your interface to the performance tool, then from there to a Maple port, then from Maple to Cubase. I use this method with Plogue Bidule, but Cubase should work the same.

I figured this thing out.

What you have to do is set up a REWIRE TRACK in Cubase (or whatever host program you are using).

Set the input of the Rewire Track to MAPLE MIDI, and the output to GVI (all channels).

Set the outputs of the MIDI tracks to the VSL MIDI router, making sure to select a specific channel.

Set the I/Os on the Performance tool to VSL MIDI for the input and MAPLE MIDI for the output.

So, the signal goes: MIDI track -> Performance Tool (via VSL MIDI router) -> Rewire Track (via Maple) -> GVI.

As long as you have the output of the Rewire Channel set to ALL CHANNELS, then the individual tracks (which must be set to specific channels) are routed through the Performance Tool and into the proper GVI channels.
