I've spent the last few weeks really digging into the FW capabilities of my Motif XS8. I feel like in the last few day, I've finally started to really grasp using the VST editor in Cubase (Cubase 6). Recently, I have found a series of articles posted by Bad Mister on using the External Instrument functionality in Cubase to set things up so that the connection can facilitate not only stereo pairs, but also mono buses/returns. In the article, BM cites using v1.4 of the editor. It seems to me in the new version 1.6.4, I can already facilitate those stereo and mono buses. Before I go digging into the external instrument setup (although I might do this just to understand it better) I'd like to know if v1.6.4 of the VST editor gave us the functionality that was the purpose for setting up the External Instrument apparatus. In short, do we need the external instrument setup if we are using v1.6.4 of the VST editor? Thanks.
I've posted the link to the article from Bad Mister for reference. It's for the XF, but says it can be used for the XS.
