Naive questions from beginner :
1. I have been loading a new instance for each solo instrument I use as I haven't needed ensembles yet. Will I save on RAM use or CPU performance if I load several instruments into one instance?
2. And if I do that, do I just assign the midi channel number to each separate instance and have them each on a separate naive track?
3. Will this also reduce the number of mixer channels I get?
4. I get a standard Cubase Midi channel for a GPO instrument which doesn't seem to affect the volume, plus a channel further along the mixer that does. Why is this?
(Hope that's clear)
Thanks in advance
