You mention that changing the stereo width is done in the master strip with the Stereo Imager. Does it mean that the FX1 Stereo Width effect should not be used in Cubasis 3? Audio tracks do not give output when this effect is on.

Hi henkpaulus,

Thanks for your message.

We fully leave it up to you, which effects you want to use.

Having checked the Stereo Width plug-in from the FX Pack I IAP, we are unable to reproduce the issue.
The plug-in works as expected when being inserted as an insert or send effect to an audio track, or used as a Master Inserts plug-in.

If you still encounter the problem, please file a bug report (new topic), and let us know the steps how to reproduce the problem, using our bug report form below.
