FX Track

FX tracks are special Cubase channels to which an audio signal can be sent. What makes them different from other audio tracks is the fact that they play host to VST plug-in and DirectX plug-in (PC only) effects. An FX track is a host for audio effects that are assigned through inserts. In other words, just as you assign an insert to an audio channel, you assign an insert in an FX Track. With Cubase SX, you can create a chain of up to eight plug-in effects (five with Cubase SL). Each FX track has its own channel in the Mixer panel and offers most of the settings found in an audio track/channel.

You can’t choose the input bus for an FX track because all FX tracks will receive their signal from the sends of audio channels (including VSTi channels, but not its MIDI counterpart). This also means that you can’t record any audio into an FX track, but you can certainly record the output of an FX track. Because the main purpose of an FX track is to provide a way to add effects to a project, you can’t send an effect to a send effect either.
