Cubase 5: How to Set Up a Reverb Send EffectMarch 12, 2012
This tutorial will explain how to set up a send effect in Cubase 5 using a stereo FX track. Send Effects are useful when you want to use the same effect on multiple tracks or to control the wet/dry levels of an effect.
I have started off the project with one mono Audio Track.
First we’ll need to create a stereo FX track to put the Reverb in.
Go To Project>Add Track>FX Channel on the Menu
The menu above will appear. Select the Roomworks Reverb Effect and change the configuration to Stereo and hit OK
The Roomworks screen will appear.
Next, hit the F3 key to bring up the Mixer Window.
Open the edit window for the mono audio track by pressing the Edit Audio Channel Settings button on the channel strip for the audio track.
On the right we see the sends column.
Click in the top column box to bring up a list of active FX tracks and select the Roomworks effect. Then activate the effect by clicking the power button above it called “Activate Send 1”
The send effect is now set up and active, all we have to do is adjust how much of the signal from the Audio 01 Track we want to send through the Reverb FX Track.
You can adjust this by either clicking and typing or by dragging the thin blue bar below the words FX-1 Roomworks.
Hit the Space Bar to play the track and adjust the send level to taste.
Now you can adjust the Reverb settings in the Roomworks window to taste and easily adjust the amount of effect on the track.
Congratulations… you have just set up a Reverb as a send effect in Cubase 5.
