I am new to studio one, and I am having a plugin latency problem. Specifically with plugins on my bus tracks when trying to parallel compress.

For example, I have a bass guitar track with a send out to a buss track, and a UAD 1176 plugin on the bus. Everything works fine until I change the block size (Buffer Size). Once the block size is increased or decreased, the send track will become out of phase/increased latency. The only work around is to disable and then enable the plugin again. This puts the two tracks back in phase.

Does anyone know how to fix this? Or do I have to disable and enable all plugins on buses and sends when changing block size to keep them in phase?

Update: I have figured out the problem. It seems like I have to use the stereo version of the plugin when using it on an aux, even though all tracks are mono as well as the aux/bus track in mono. Anyone know why that is?
