Sends to your effects from each of your main group channels, or any key individual tracks like the lead vocal, can also be assigned, so that if you need a bit of reverb to add to your initial rhythm guitars or guide vocal, it's ready and waiting to go. I will definitely try and fiddle with it some more. Basic Mixing Template Set Up The first thing is you could set up a mixing template for your tracks with only the organization, the color coding and the routing.
I'm guessing you brought the original mix to the point where it sounds 95% as you intended. Please Note: To use these Templates you will need either Cubase 5 or Cubase 7. The final polish and mastering of your tracks is a very important stage to get that perfect finished Sound and each genre has its own technical requirements, and examples of these settings are included in the templates.

I just thought biamping isn't for me then. I love producing music and developing artists. This is by no means a perfect scientific experiment, but it's still effective.
