Adding Effects to a Bus

When input monitoring is on during audio recording, audio effects chains that contain non-in-place plug-ins are displayed in yellow () to indicate that automatic plug-in delay compensation is being used. Chains that cannot be used for live monitoring are automatically bypassed and are displayed in red ().
When using ACID software as a ReWire device, any effects chain that includes non-in-place plug-ins is automatically bypassed to prevent synchronization problems with the ReWire mixer application. The effects chain icon is displayed in red (). Apply the plug-ins within the ReWire mixer application.
