RACK VST3 + Studio One 4.5 + AUDIO 8 module how to? - SOLVED

I’ve just bought RACK 2 Pro and I’m trying to figure out how to use the VST3 module in Studio One. One thing I haven’t found the documentation for is how to route more than two audio channels. Is this even possible?

Consider a set up where I’ve created an instrument track with Rack 2 as the instrument and have AUDIO 8 as the output module. By default the instrument will be stereo, with “To Device” channel 1 going to the left channel and channel 2 going to the right channel. Is there any way to route, say, channel 3 to a studio one track or bus?

(I’ve seen Omri Cohen’s video on how to do this in Ableton, but I can’t figure out the equivalent action for Studio One.)

Answering my own question because I thought of the right search right after I posted the question. (Ooops)

The documentation I didn’t find was for “instruments with multiple audio output routing” and once I though of that search I found a YouTube video that told me the correct steps:

[list]In the mixer, open the entry for the instrument[/list] [list]Enable the additional outputs[/list]

this will create a mixer channel for each additional output that you enable.

Well, that was easy.

Hi Marty,

Do you have a link for the youtube video please?

Also do you happen to be using a ES9 and figured out a way to route a input signal from external rack gear into the VCV vst within Studio one?


Yes, here is an old Presonus YouTube video that I used. Note that the section on Kontakt is out of date, but also not relevant.

Oops. Forget your second question. Sorry, I’m not using an ES9 or other rack gear. I assume you mean CV or audio and not midi?

yea cv and audio

The audio part should be easy. It works on a Focusrite Scarlett anyway. The VCV Audio modules have both audio in and audio out. Audio In should map to the USB Audio output from the ES9. If you use the Audio-16 you should be able to map all 16 ES9 channels. If that doesn’t work, maybe you have a USB audio problem on your computer?
