Using plugin with 2 inputs/outputs for a mono track
I'ld like to add reverb to my recording as a pre fader
plugin for a mono track.
I'm using ardour 2.4.1 under Debian Etch and would
like to use the TAP Reverberator
(part of Debian package tap-plugins 0.7.0-2).
This plugin has got 2 inputs and 2 outputs.
When I add it for a first time to a mono track
everything works fine, although the number of inputs
of the plugin and the track do not match.
When I try to add the same plugin to a second mono track
and the first one is activated I get the massage from Ardour:
You attempted to add a plugin (TAP Reverberator).
The Plugin has 2 Inputs
but the insertion point there are
only 1 active signal streams.
This makes no sense - unless the plugin supports
side-chain inputs. A future version of Ardour will
support this type of configuration.
My question is why it is working for the first adding of the plugin
and for the second not?
Remark: I like the sound of the TAP Reverberator and have yet not found an other
mono reverb plugin with the same sound.
