First disclaimer is I'm just learning all this stuff and am fairly clueless.
I am using a Focusrite 6i6 as my interface and also as the driver in Cubase.
I have my MOXF plugged in my computer via USB. If I add the MOXF to the VST "rack" and create a MIDI track, everything seems to works as advertised. The VST editor pops up, I choose the voices in each of the slots, make sure it is in song mode, and can route additional midi tracks to different voice slots (1-16).
However, when I create a track using an instrument track and choose the MOXF, the first track works, but when I create another instrument track with the MOXF, another rack instrument appears, another instance of the editor appears, and then I get a "port open" error.
1) Why does the first one work but I get an error with the second one?
2) Also, I'm still trying to understand what is the advantage of an instrument track versus a MIDI one? What "shortcuts" do you get when you use an instrument track, because there obviously must be some advantage to using them that I am missing.
