    VEP Templates: how to integrate patch-based instruments (e.g. synths, TOC, Sonokinetic stuff)?

    As I'm building my new Cubase/VEP template, I'm wondering how to best integrate instruments that have a large list of patches into the whole thing. Ideally, I'd like to have a VEP template that remains static and do any changes that are specific to a piece of music inside the Cubase project (so...

    How to disable a VEP instance from your master

    I think this has been mentioned before on the forum, but I can't seem to find it. Is there a way to disable a channel in VEPro from my master if the VEPro template is on my Slave? For example a specific CC message I can send from my track in Cubase to disable the channel on the VEPro slave?

    "Big" Pro Tools templates?
