Re: Sonuus anyone?

I have not tried the Bidule plugin inside the Bidule host, as Andy
mentioned, but I have tried very much to use the Bidule plugin inside
the other two hosts Ableton Live and Mainstage. But every such project
has finally crashed the host. My reason for doing that was to set up
an input envelope following function that controls the feedback of a
reverb/delay to automatically freeze the last audio until you play
another note. So it might be the Envelope Follow group of Bidule that
causes the crashing, can't tell. And I won't research it more since I
have found a better way to incorporate freeze reverb that is based on
manual tweaking by expression pedals rather than the automatic
envelope follow group in Bidule.

BTW I found good envelope follow Max for Live objects, if someone is
interested. And in Mainstage I found that a plain Logic/Mainstage
compressor plugin side-chained by the audio input amplitude does a
similar job in preventing the sound to get too muddy (lowering
reverb/delay/loops when you play a note and fading it back into the
mix when you shut up).
