Output Bus Channels

The output bus channels represent each output you have created in the VST Connections panel. How you use the output buses you create depends on the project at hand and the number of available outputs on your sound card. Depending on how you set up your system or how many outputs your sound card has, you will generally use the two main outputs of your sound card to monitor your Cubase project. If you have more than two outputs (and probably inputs), you can use these additional outputs for additional buses. These additional buses can serve to feed an external effect processor, a headphone amplifier, another recording device, or a multispeaker monitoring system typical in surround systems.

Each output bus you create in the VST connections will appear when you make the output bus channels visible in the Mixer. You can also change or create bus output configurations through the VST Connections panel (F4 is the default key command to access the panel). If your sound card only offers a pair of stereo outputs, then creating a single stereo output bus and perhaps two mono output buses should be enough since you can’t separate the signal on its way out anyway (besides the two mono signals). If you want to group a series of channels together and control their settings as one group, you should use a group channel rather than a bus.
