  • Using BBO with/without VE

    Hi there,

    I've been using VI for years and my usual process was to load a few VE instances, each assigned to 1-2 orchestral sections, I'd use VE as a mixing platform in conjunction with the actual Cubase mixer. The built in panner made a lot of sense 'cause the Special Edition needed manual panning as you all know and VE saved me from loading Vienna PowerPan on each channel.

    I am now building a BBO template and I am really tempted to just load the Synchron Player as an individual instrument track for each instrument, 'cause the instruments are already panned and Synchron Player has plenty of built-in mixing features so VE would just require extra routing in this case.

    I understand that my use of VE is really basic and it can do a lot more than that, also I'm not sending work to a secondary machine but I just wanted to check if I'm missing something important here before I start refining my new working templates.

    Many thanks


  • Hi Francesco,

    Nothing wrong with loading individual Synchron Player instances into VE and continuing working with your familiar workflow. Maybe this is a good time to download a demo of VE Pro 7 to evaluate all three approaches. The most significant advantages of VE & VE Pro are resource management and its multiprocessing capabilities. But that's just the tip of the iceberg.

  • Hi Andreas,

    Thanks so much for your reply.

    I see what you mean, also you're right I'm gonna have to try VE Pro sooner or later. :-)

    All the best
