I've noticed a phenomenon many months ago: certain LADSPA plugins, when I enable
them, cause all audio to stop coming out of the effects chain.
This was a common problem with jack-rack. it got so annoying, I stopped using jack-rack.
The same plugins that would cause jack-rack to go silent, worked fine in Ardour. So I
started using Ardour (0.99) instead for effects.
Now, on a 64-bit dual-core Intel machine, I'm noticing the problem even in Ardour
(2.0.2). And in ecasound too, and jack-rack. If for example I add the TAP Rotary Speaker
plugin to any of Ardour2, jack-rack, or ecasound, all audio stops. If I remove the TAP
Rotary Speaker, audio is fine.
Why is this?
In Ardour have you noticed that output on the channel that has the
TAP plugin goes to ridiculous levels? This is happening for me when
using the CAPS EQ and TAP Reverberator or Stereo Echo. All output stops
until I mute the offending channel. I can usually remove the plugins,
reinsert them, and it will work fine for a while. The problem for me is
definitely NOT CPU usage. I've monitored that very closely. I have no
idea what's causing this but it is annoying.
