Direct monitoring and long latency plugins

Second thread in the row :mrgreen: don’t kill me.
I’m using C9.0.20 on Windows 10, latest update.
Yesterday I was checking some reverb plugins live, and some other plugins. I had microphone in front of me and headphones on my head. For low latency I clicked on constrain delay compensation and that worked fine. I started switching plugins on inserts and when i opened plugin that can’t bu utilized in constrain delay compensation mod I wanted to switch to another but drop down menu didn’t work. I couldn’t move it or delete it. Then I turned back on delay compensation and plugin became blue and now i could switch it off. Does any of you have similar problem when you try this.

Thanks

That is what constrain delay compensation does. It disables any plugin that has a delay, so it seems everything is working as it should.

Yea, that is fine, but I can’t change it to another one or discard it because drop down menu wan’t show.

Plugins that are turned off/disabled can’t be removed or changed. That seems inconvenient for those trying to find plugins with tolerable latencies as you are. Since the misnamed “Delay Compensation Threshold” https://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=253&t=113330 is much more effective at determining plugin latencies than the “Plug-in Manager” https://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=198&t=111022#p633490, your approach would be a good one, if Cubase supported it. :wink:
