I have the following setup:
----> KICK SUBGROUP
----> SNARE SUBGROUP
All of these (kick and snare subgroups + tom, floor, hh and oh) are bussed to a drums group.
I’m trying to have PI at the last effect slot on each oh the tracks. (Why? because I want to have, for example, both snare top bottom be aligned individually, as well as their respective group, where I might be using eq/compression/distortion which causes phase shift).
In both Cubase and Reaper that scenario causes a Sync Error, regardless of whether they are in different groups (within Pi, that is). If I deactivate the instances of Pi that are on either the kick and snare tracks or on the subgroups it’s ok again, but if it seems that when I have a track with Pi that is bussed to a group with Pi I get the error.
The strange things is that Pro Tools doesn’t behave that way.
I tried tweaking the buffer in the settings window but to no avail.
I’m guessing that there must be something illogical in terms of delay compensation and the inter-plugin communication that causes things to get screwed, and yet somehow Pro Tools seems to handle it just fine with delay compensation intact.
I have both a cubase and a pro-tools session to demonstrate that I can send, as well as some screenshots. I can easily create a reaper session to demonstrate the same problem.
Here is that scenario, working just fine in Pro Tools:
