Plug-in Delay Compensation Not Applied To Sequencer VST Chain?

asked Aug 23, 2016 in Studio One 3 by j4ck fl4sh (620 points)

I am using sequencer vst's as instruments feeding virtual instrument tracks (e.g.B-Step, MUX, Kirnu Cream feeding Dune, Presence, Mai Tai etc). I noticed the PDC does not appear to be applied to the output. The output lags by the 'Total Plug-in Delay' as shown in the status bar. With some of the effects plug-ins I use this can be as high as 90ms and means live playing gives terrible results! Applying manual delay compensation to these plug-ins is either fiddly or not implementable. Am I doing something wrong?

This requirement seems fundamental to useable DAW operation.

If you can demonstrate PDC not working for something in Studio One, please create a repeatable test and contact technical support so they can run the test and confirm or not, and possibly forward it to the development team for review.
