My question: Why do the waves360 plugins work only in stereo mode in Adobe Audition CC? I add them to the 5.1 channels. I have a 5.1 speaker system for monitoring when mixing. Waves Um226 and s360 imager - sum R, L + LsRs and the central speaker is ignored. As if downmix is happening. Standard Track panner Audition with all the speakers works fine.

Effects routing works only in stereo. enter image description here

But when I add Waves m360 manager to the master channel, this plugin works fine on the master channel. What am I doing wrong? Please, help!

  • I'm not sure what the problem is - this sounds like it's working as it should.

Not too sure what the issue is: I haven't been working with surround sound too often, but the only reason, that I can think of, is that your sound card can't monitor 5.1... Did you have surround sound working on your system before?

  • Thanks for your reply! It turned out all much easier: I added plug-ins to 5.1 track, or to bus 5.1, and not to stereo. And the plugins work. Apr 29, 2017 at 5:23
