I have a problem I hope you can help me with.
I've been using Cubase for some time now, but now I want to make some symphonic rock/metal. So I got Voices of the Apocalypse for the vocals with Giga Studio 3.04 and then downloaded VOTA Utility 2.0 of the internet (SoundsOnline). Now, I don't have a keyboard yet, so currently I'm forced to Loopback the MIDI signal (with Marple Midi Tools). I don't have a GSIF-compatible soundcard either, so things have to work through ReWire.
The obvious thing here is to make things work with Vota Utility, so I can type the lyrics, then have it played by Cubase SX in the score/key editor.
I've fiddled around with some settings, but either of them works.
This is what VOTA Utility help says:
"Sequencer midi out: Loopback midi out 1
Utility midi in: Loopback midi in 1
Utility midi out: Nemesys port 1
Gigastudio midi in: none"
Either I just can't make it work or I don't understand it! Can someone explaine it properly?
This is the software I have, where Vota/Giga being the new software:
Cubase SX 2
Voices of the Apocalypse/Giga Studio Orchestra 3.04
VOTA Utility 2.0
Please help me, as I'm about to pull my hair out of their sockets!
