Elements 7 - FX Sends not working?

Hello,

I’ve just started playing around with Cubase Elements 7. I cannot seem to get the effects sends to work. I have created a dedicated FX channel with an effect inserted. I have other tracks routed to the FX channel, but I am getting no signal on the FX channel.

Any help would be appreciated.

Nevermind…I hadn’t activated the sends…sigh.

Is the effect send blue to indicate on? for starters
