It didn’t use to. I’ve always had Sonarworks/ Sound ID on my control room output and it would always continue to work after I hit the “contrain delay compensation” button. Suddenly that’s changed.
I don’t think it particularly has to do with Cubase, rather SoundID probably had an update and all the sudden Cubase is lumping it in with the rest. Is there anyway to change that? I often compose with plugins on my master bus and simply switch the button on and off depending on if I am recording something in or not.
By chance do you have soundworks not set to Zero Latency mode?
It shouldn’t be touched if it is in Zero Latency mode - but it has another mode whose name I can’t recall off the top of my head that will cause latency and it will thus be disabled.
Cubase Version ? Id version ? both of the latest work as they should but as Rob says . Linear Phase mode indeed disables SW’s , i run 4 plug different SW’s in the control room and they work as expected ,They was a bug , whether it’s still there i don’t know ,but if you update Sonarworks while inserted in the control room then SW defaults to Delay compensation on but the delay button does not show you it’s on . Simply removing the older insert and pressing the delay button restarts SW
Also in case you fancy a look, one of my past live streams was about the PLE and a section about setting up a warning to let you know if CDC is on. It was a live stream so a bit chatty but may be useful.
