exrovite, I think it may be a sonar issue. I've had problems with other plugins before where sonar sees the inputs but does not pass signal through. In fact cakewalk needs to step up the routing in sonar in general to be more flexible and they need to address the external audio buffering that spikes the cpu which makes things like using the nebula server with another pc a PITA. I use 8.5.3 btw.
I downloaded the sidechain programs for Fate and Snap but they revert to init - they are not probably authorized by the .aut file downloaded from AITB. How can I make them work? I really want to use these comps in sidechain. Any suggestion? BTW I work in Reaper. Thanks.
