The VST host must support plugins that have more than one stereo
pair of input and output "pins". Many do not, especially DAWs,
because this is a rare plugin feature and it complicates the
user interface. Live supports this as do the so called "modular"
hosts like Bidule, EnergyXT, and AudioMulch.

It has been a long time since I looked at Cubase, but I think the demo
LE version I used did not support multi-port plugins. I don't know
if Cubase 4 added this, make sure before you pay for an upgrade.
