When the plugins change slots, the order of the chain is changed, and so Curve now shows the effect of Equilibrium - why would you expect otherwise? How can the order of the plugins be visibly defined other than by their order in the slots?
I can’t reproduce, but I use another EQ than the DMG Equilibrium. Can you reproduce eg. with Steinberg Studio EQ?
Please reset the Master Section before, to start from clean.
Please also verify in the WaveLab about box that 9.5.40 is really the installed version.
I have these plugs and have also been unable to reproduce your issue. Are you using the latest version of the DMG plug (not that this should make any difference unless perhaps you have the EQ set to use a mid or side configuration internally … I tried both stereo/mid in the DMG by the way).
There is still something strange going on with the mastering slots. Some VST-3/2 plugins seem to not be effecting the audio being played. There are a few plugins (I will get a list together and post) that since version 9.5.45 simply do nothing when the faders or knobs are turned. This is since the upgrade. It is almost like they are permanently bypassed. Anyone else notice this? Also the ACON plug ins show up in all my other DAWs and work fine but in WL they all show up as “DEMOS”. Not sure what is going on.
Hi Todd, I tried your procedure but, sorry, I can’t get a repro. The Curve EQ response is as expected here. Just wondering. What audio are you using for this test? What is the precise version number (including build number) of the Wavelab you are using?
Wavelab Pro 9.5.40 (build 180) - 64-bit. Session optimized for CPU:19
I’ve been trying many different ways to see what causes it… try this:
Load any WAV file into the audio editor (just to simplify the process). The file in my case is 44.1khz, 16-bit.
Load Voxengo Curve into the 2nd playback slot (leave the 1st one empty for now).
Drag the dot on the right side down so the high frequencies are reduced.
Load another instance of Voxengo Curve into the 1st playback slot. Apply no EQ - leave the line straight with no points.
Drag plugins so you can see both Voxengo instances at once. Notice even though the 1st one has no EQ applied, and the 2nd one does, the displays are the same…
Now bypass the 2nd instance (the one with the EQ applied). The display in the FIRST instance gets brighter - even though it’s the 2nd one that was bypassed. Now re-enable the 2nd instance… the display in the FIRST instance gets darker! I can click back and forth… The display in the first instance is not correct… it’s reflecting audio changes in the second plugin.
When using these exact steps, I can reproduce this problem every single time.
