I´ve read alot about people using several DAWs to compose and emulate orchestral works. However, I´m blessed with only 1 computer setup (AMD64 3200, 2gb, 250+250gb asio2), with Cubase SL3, Kontakt2, VSL Opus 1 + Epic Horns.
How do people like me use this kind of setup effectively? I´d like to use as much realtime mixing/effects as possible, perhaps at the price of freezing things I dont edit/modify at the time.
As I see it there are 2 options:
1. K2 standalone (fx, mixing in K2) + Cubase
2. K2 vsti inside Cubase (fx, mixing, freezing in Cubase)
I´m also interested in ways of mixing and panning inside K2 standalone. I would like to use "combined panning", "balanced panning" to pan and adjust the instruments stereo width. Not the standard volume pan.. Can I pan the left and right samples individually inside K2 (stand alone)?
I´d appretiate any advice. Perhaps there are more than 2 options?
