Instrument plugins with numInputs > 0


#1

Hi.

From time to time I get to see plugin synths like that, is there any other reason than a mistake for the synth to use the host’s input?
Shouldn’t only effect plugins do that?

Thanks

I guess if you don’t need any input then they are rather useless. However, It’s always nice to have the option of routing audio through an instrument.

A couple of the soft synths that I have can take an audio input, modulate it, or use the input as a modulation source which is then combined with the synth’s main output This can allow for effects such as ‘voice boxes’ etc.
