An insert plugin is only loaded into memory when assigned to a track and monitoring of the arrangement is activated. Deactivating monitoring will then unload the insert plugins. For each track that an insert plugin is assigned to, a separate instance will be loaded with its own editor window.
… a separate instance will be loaded with its own editor window.
But that’s what I don’t find. When you load a plugin as global you get an edit button to get the plugins interface/controls. In insert mode i don’t find a way to actually open that plugin ….. The plugin is loaded and working but how do you acces its controls (knobs etc)
There should be an edit button in the track header, or the the little round button on the mixer strips. You can also press ‘E’ to open the editor for the plugin on the current track. What plugins are you having problems with?
