Is there any Way that you Can hear the full channel settings when editing pitch in variaudio. I only hear a dry signal - and sometimes when editing things that are very low in the mix, I almost get my ears blown off.
If you’re not already, set up Control Room (CR) in VST Connections.
Then open the CR Mixer and turn down the Listen Bus level until it’s playing more in the zone.
Not in studio today, and I’ve never had to mess with it, but in CR Mixer, I believe there’s a PFL/AFL button for the listen bus. Try AFL and see if it will play after-fader in variaudio.
