    [h=2]Cubase 5 - How to distinguish between a plugin and e.g. an EDITOR[/h]
    I know there are plugins, but where do you see the pool of them in Cubase as is in FL Studio, and more importantly, and if I'm making any sense at all, How do you distinguish a Plugin (e.g. Wavelab?) from say an Editor (VariAudio?) ... See, I don't even know if the inclusions in brackets are plugins or just FX. Sorry, I am pretty new to all this so any help will go a long way.

    Well the first thing you need to do is to reign in your posts. You've got several different threads going here which ask similar questions. It's better to limit the subject to just one post as opposed to asking the same questions in multiple posts.

    Wavelab is not a "plug" in the most commonly accepted definition. It is a program, a two track editor used to edit and finalize your complete mixes that have been rendered from your multi-track program (cubase).
    It's what you would use to trim the "tops and tails" (beginnings and endings) of a two track audio mix, or add final EQ, compression, limiting, etc., also known as "mastering".

    The definition of a "plug" in its most widely accepted definition are Effects - things like reverbs, delays, along with Processors like compressors, limiters, etc.

    Thanks Donny. Very informative! But don't ignore my other questions... they're NOT the same!

    I would say the first thing to do would be to read your manual. Actually, once you've done that, most of these questions are moot. You paid for a manual, make use of it.
