linking plugins

Question

hey guys, 

Anyone could help me to figure out how to link plugins in different tracks.

For example, if i have a left and right guitar and i want to have an EQ (or any plugin) to work together in both tracks...

Thanks

I would create a guitar bus, put the effects on the bus and route both guitars to the bus rather than the main output:

Maybe control groups ?

[Edit] - actually, no, they won't work with VST's or FX Chains.

From what I know, there is no such functionality in Cakewalk.

You can copy FX (and/or settings) from one track/instance to another, so manually " syncing" parameters when required. Or you can copy automations for corresponding parameters.

If for some reason your REALLY want sync parameter changes life, you can do this using at least 2 approaches:

1) in case FX in question support MIDI steering and you have some MIDI controller, you can organize MIDI routing such way that both instances are changed by the same MIDI control. That is the only method I recommend for live environment.

2) you can make (project specific) AZ Controller preset which will sync one (or all) FX from one track to another (assuming parameters are automatable, no extra hardware required). Parameters will be synced with some delay (~75ms), the procedure is relatively CPU heavy (all parameters of all plug-ins in question need to be queried as fast as possible to detect changes...). That is why I do not recommend to use it in critical environment.

The controls in the Pro Channel EQ can be grouped. The PC4K and PC76 Pro Channel compressors  can also be grouped.
