First of all I would like to apologize for my English. I am from Greece but I will try to be clear. So, I have a band and I want to make gigs using VST plugins live (on real time), and I am wondering (for example), if I can connect my guitar to channel 1 on my analog or digital mixer and use my VST plugins from my laptops DAW (for example cubase) to create my sound, and at the same time to connect the bass instrument to channel 2 and control it from my pc using VST and connect the microphones on channel 3 (to do the same thing) and my e drums (to do the same thing).
I know that there are many digital mixers that can do almost the same thing that I am describing as it carries some software with built in VSTs but I really don't like them and I think (I am not sure) also that I cant install/add to that kind of software my VST plugins that I am intending to use. If there was a way to add VST on digital mixers it would be the solve of my problem.
I personally thought that if an analogue mixer has a built in sound card then maybe the cubase could see that interface and let me control any channel and at the same time let me use my plugins live.
If anyone have any thoughts I would be glad to hear.
