I just noticed something weird (at least I think so).
In Cubase Pro 9.0.30, if I have plugins (such as metering or monitor correction plugins) on the Main Mix section of the Control Room, these plugins actually process the audio of the metronome if it’s turned on. I noticed this when I saw the clicks of the metronome registering on a spectrogram plot. For fun, I tested the signal with a distortion plugin and had fun slamming the metronome clicks into full-on clipping. The Cubase metronome never sounded so rock.
OK, so to me this makes no sense. I can’t imagine a situation where someone would want to process their metronome clicks with a plugin in the Control Room. Does anyone have any ideas on how to prevent the metronome from being included in the insert-based processing for the Main Mix signal in the Control Room, such that plugins applied there process the actual Main Mix but not the metronome? (Is there a way to set the metronome audio post-processing?) Or is this a bug?
