How do I get bus 2 to register in the audio activity meter?

I don’t know if it was doing this before, but since yesterday I’ve noticed that only audio coming through bus 1 shows up in the audio meter on the transport. Both my bus 1 and bus 2 inputs are mono signals, and I can switch which input which bus uses around all I want, but only audio coming through bus 1 ever shows up on the meter.

The transport shows the input assigned as “standard” or “default” in the VST connections

Ah, thanks. I guess I switched which bus I’m normally using as default. There can’t be more than 1 bus displaying feedback in the transport at a time then?

you could try a multichannel bus.
Cant check this at the moment, but should work. Stereo bus shows 2 channels
