Activating ReWire channels

ReWire supports streaming of up to 48 separate audio channels. The exact number of available ReWire channels depends on the synthesizer application. The ReWire device panels in Cubase, allow you to activate the channels that you want to use.


You have enabled the ReWire application that you want to use in the ReWire Setup dialog.


  1. Select Studio > ReWire, and select the ReWire application that you want to use.

    The corresponding ReWire panel appears. This consists of a number of rows, one for each available ReWire channel.

  2. Click the power buttons to the left to activate/deactivate channels.

    The buttons light up to indicate activated channels.

  3. Optional: Double-click the labels in the right column, and type in another name.

    These labels are used in your project to identify the ReWire channels.


The activated ReWire channels are added to the project.

  • The more ReWire channels you activate, the more processing power is required.

  • For information about exactly what signal is carried on each channel, refer to the documentation of the synthesizer application.


Deactivating ReWire channels in the ReWire panel removes the channels from your project. All associated automation or parameter settings are lost.
