    A few months ago I purchased a Lexicon reverb unit. It's sound is exactly what I want in reverb, it's perfect for my music. The problem is that my mixing environment is digital ("in the box"), and I can't apply the Lexicon reverb to every intrument the way I do inside Cubase. In Cubase I simply place a reverb in a bus, and apply that bus to whatever track that needs reverb, being able to control how much reverb is applied to each sound (synth lead, snare hit, hihats, etc.).

    How could I apply the Lexicon reverb to various tracks the same way I would with a plugin reverb (from a bus)???

    You will need an interface with at least 4 ins and outs. outputs 3&4 will go to the lexicon from the buses in your software.
    THen out of the lexicon back to the interface and subsequently into a pair of aux channels.

    If it's one of the new MX reverbs, you can use a VST plug-in in Cubase to control the hardware reverb.

    In case you can't do what dvdhawk said:

    Create a bus assigned to an available output, connect that output to the device's input, connect the device's output to an available input on the Fireface, create a track with the input assigned to it, monitor the input with the effects using your usual input monitoring process. Send whatever channels you want the reverb on to the bus, record the results on the return track.

    If it were me I'd find a way to get the sound I wanted with a plug in.

    Yeah i know but this is like my first hardware (if we not count LiquidMix) so yeah i have to play ith

    Oh ok and than i'll record wet signal. So do i need to blend dry track with this one? I think i do cos wet track will be really low (sometimes). But i have to check...;)

    Make the effect 100% wet.
