    Hi James, thanks for the post and apologies for the lag in publishing the post! 

     

    Can you elaborate on this, which DAW specifically are you using and which feature/functionality exactly is not being recognized by the render-bypass feature the ay you're describing? Gettig these notifications to work at all turned out to be quite the challenge, so I wouldn't be able to make any promises as to further development on the feature. But it would be great to see some further details and make sure if I'm understanding correctly - maybe the given scenario would actually qualify as a software bug, not an improvement, in which case we could report to the development team and see if they can do something about it. Thank you!

    Hi, sorry for my late reply - only just saw this. So lets take Ableton Live for example. Say you want to consolidate some audio files or freeze a track. The SW reminder pops up because its 'technically' offline, but its not a case of doing an export and as the SW plugin is on the master bus, its effects are not applied to the new audio file anyway. Its simply rendering multiple audio files/clips into a single new one with no added channel processing. In Cubase, its a little different; you have the Render In Place function. You have the option to choose how this works - whether it takes into account the full audio path right up through to the master bus, or whether its just the channel settings. Understandably, it would be difficult for the SW plugin to differentiate here. I cant remember whether the dialogue also happens with Cubase's Bounce selection feature in offline processing - I don't think it does there but I've had the reminder turned off for awhile now.

    I suppose its a question if there is any way for the plugin to determine whether these offline bounce processes are taking the master bus into account or not. If not, then have the reminder disabled.

    Hey James, 

    Thank you for getting back to us!
    Your question makes a lot of sense, but there is no solution we can currently provide.
    Sadly, in the case with Ableton, we sadly don't receive enough data from the DAW to differentiate these processes. 
    Because the plug-in operates within the software environment, this would more often than not be dependant on the DAW you are using.
