Let’s say I have an instrument that creates a
k30Cine ( L + R + C) audio output (using
addAudioOutput() in the
Then there is an effect that is just stereo.
How does the host “connect” the instrument to the effect? From the API on the host side (
IComponent::getBusInfo) it looks like you only get a “channelCount” and the notion of what is L vs R vs C is lost.
Also how does the host manage the various kinds of busses (main vs aux). In the examples I could find in the SDK (like in
BusInfo::busType is ignored.
And the final question would be about what that means for
