I was happy to see the 8.0.4 release but it still has problems. I went crazy for hours before I figured out what was going on.
Plugins with latency compensation don’t work right when used as Montage “Track” or “Clip” effects. If the effect is ON when the Play button is pressed they work and the effect can be toggled on/off while the audio is running. If the effect is OFF when the play button is pressed there is no sound (audio mutes) when the plugin is turned ON while the audio is running.
I have found this with EVERY plugin I have that uses delay compensation and they all do the same thing.
These same plugins DO work properly in both the track and output “Master” sections. Therefore, it seems there is something wrong in the WL delay compensation system in the “Track” and “Clip” sections.
This only appears to be a problem with delay compensated plugins. Zero-latency EQs, etc., don’t behave like this.
