Audio staggers when deactivating a plugin. Bug?

When I am playng a session, and I elect to deactivate a plugin via the push button on the Channel window, the audio staggers and then continues. If I simply bypass the effect/plugin, everything is fine. …Er, I am not supposed to do this? Sure, I can avoid this practice but should I have to? I don’t remember this happening in 6.0.X.

You are switching the plugin off! then any delay compensation is removed hence the stagger as all the other channels are brought in line with the new timing. Same as when you put a plugin back in!

Obviously when merely bypassing the plugin the delay compensation stays the same.

Ah, thanks for this Split. This makes perfect sense, I will avoid that.
