Hello. I´m trying to use my Moxf as a vst in Cubase. I read the article "MOXF EDITOR VST" from YamahaSynth, and yet is unclear to me. I Followed every step and was able to record a track. Then i converted it in audio with no problem at all. Everything was OK. But when i tried to create another vst MOXF track, issues started: a second MOXF Editor was opened, and problems with the ports started. What i wanted to do was to have 3 or 4 vst moxf MIDI tracks (with, of course, a different MIDI channel for each one) edit them, and then convert them to audio. I´ve tried to create more MIDI tracks instead of VST INSTRUMENT tracks but later i wasn´t able to assign the MOXF VST as an output option.
I´d like to fix this problem. Is it possible to create a single VST INSTRUMENT track, then create different MIDI TRACKS with different channels and assign them to the VST INSTRUMENT output?. Or, as i guess, there is a better way to do this that i am missing?
Thank you very much

No, no, no, i’ll Have to quote you “Kindly read my post again” where are your Markers... you did none of what I suggested...

Sorry, you are obviously new to VSTs and Cubase. There will never ever ever, be any audio there never. Never ever be audio where you are drawing that circle... Cubase will automatically create a REAL AUDIO TRACK, as opposed to the Virtual Audio Lane...

You have metering there.... Success. That’s good. I told you your are ready now to execute the Export
Now (last time) read carefully: it’s not hard...

Go to FILE > EXPORT > Audio Mixdown
A dialog box similar to this one will appear - this is the Setup for EXPORTING AUDIO MIXDOWN

Click export, you will be told an external synth will require the data be made in real time (I’m repeating myself again redundantly all over again. We’ll try to find some relevant Steinberg videos for you... we’ll add them to this thread later.

Take your time, you are almost there... ;-)

Yes I am completely new to this
Also I am only a month old to the MoXF
I think I have to wait for your video tutorial
This is really annoying me a little

We’re you able to fill in the Export Audio Mixdown screen?

Great tutorial here ... Export Audio Mixdown is covered starting around 4:20

Yes,got it :)
I was able to export the audio mix down(real time export) also the O/P file is sounding correct
This is a great tutorial (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6ClrrTr0uc&feature=youtu.be)
Thank u so much !
Now we are only left with our windows issue
Also what should be an average latency
mine shows : input latency 16.73ms and output latency 22.51 ms

When setting up for optimum (minimum) Input/Output Latency you do so by reducing the Buffer Size. The smaller the Buffer Size the lower the latency. Ideally, you want it at single digit milliseconds, if you are in a situation where you have to monitor through the computer during Record. Latency is of no importance when just listening, it is a problem during Record or overdubbing.

How it works is, the computer takes time to receive, process, and then output data, this delay, versus a signal traveling *direct* to the speakers, is called the “latency”.

Visually you can get a great explanation at 3:09 of this video

If fact if you start at 2:20 you’ll get a great explanation of ASIO (Audio Streaming Input Output), VST (Virtual Studio Technology) and Latency.

In general, you lower the Buffer Size until you hear clicks and pops, then back it off by one setting.
Since you are using external hardware, that allows Direct Monitoring you never have to be at the wrong end of latency. The MOXF, as your audio interface, let’s you Direct Monitor your playing or singing (mic) when recording to DAWs, and since you have boutique-level processing built-in, you can record using Zero Latency Direct Monitoring.

This means that during Record or Overdubbing operations for Zero Latency Monitoring you’ll want to to Mute (“m”) the VST Instrument Audio Lane, this way you can Direct Monitor (send the audio of the MOXF directly to the speakers) your playing.

Okay !
Thank u for exaplaining it so simple
Though the video is not available,I understood from your explaination.

Why every time my MoXF syncs with the Moxf editor,it removes data of my favorite list (i.e all favorites are removed) ?
