Hi to the Forum

 

I'm wanting to work out if I can use VE PRo in Cubase, play back and record on the track etc.

I can connect my roland keyboard to the Standalone versions of VE Pro, but when I use it in Cubase, I cannot seem to get the midi keyboard to play through the channel in Cubase that I've got the vepro connected to.

Is this because it is the keyless demo?

thanks for any help,'

If I can do this, I would buy the licence.

many thanks,

Steve

Hi Steve,

If you enable the track-playback you should be hear what you are playing, just as usual.
I can confirm this works with VEP7 perfectly :)

Hi Ben,

 

Thank you for your reply. I'm not sure how to do that. However, if you can help me get it working that will be good.

 

 

Many thanks,

 

Steve

Set VEP up as a Rack Instrument, add a MIDI track, set the routing of the MIDI track up to go to VEP and select the correct channel, then click the monitoring button in the track

Hi bbelius,

 

thank you for your reply. When you mean a rack instrument, I'm not sure what you mean by that. Is that simply where you go into cubase [I'm still using Cubase 5, but I'm intending to upgrade], select 'devices', select 'vst instruments', and then insert a vepro as in the picture I have put here? -is the drop down menu where I insert instruments, is that the rack you are meaning?  Thanks if you can confirm that.

Hi Bbelius and Ben,

 

good news, I have it up and going. I opened up an enpro server first, and I didn't open anything else. I stuck a piano into it, and opened the en pro server into cubase, put it into a rack, and it played back perfectly. Now, I don't think that is what I should have done, as I didn't open up a normal ve pro [not a server], as everyone appears to do, but it worked. Maybe, as because I'm using just one computer, I don't have to open up the extra ve pro instances, but just stick with having the vepro server for playback? I don't know - I'm only guessing as this is all new to me, and I'm used to using the free Vienna Ensemble.

I'm not sure if  that is the correct way of doing it, but it worked. I now have to work out the right way and make that work.

Thanks for your help to both of you.

Much appreciated!

 

Steve :-)

Me and myself are glad that we could help

Great that you figured it out, I have never used Cubase 5...
