Recently, when using a Spider Audio device in a Reason Combinator to split the signal, I found out that only the left channel was effected. WTF! Some users downloaded my example file and confirmed the bug. Propellerhead is aware of it (for a long time since several users have reported it) but has not yet solved it.
Check out the short video I made below. It shows you that even on a MUTED channel (!) the Spider affects the signal on playback! A rather super nasty bug, right?
You can download the Spider bug file HERE! And reproduce it as follows:
- open the Reason song
- press play
- listen to the sound
- now connect Spider Output 2 Left to Line Mixer 1 Channel 2 Left input
- connect Spider Output 2 Right 1 to Line Mixer 1 Channel 2 Right input
However the solution is very simple and free: download the
Shelob Audio Bypass Splitter and the Mordred Audio Bypass Merger. Those Rack Extensions by Jiggery-Pokery are like the Spiders on steroids. So from now on I will be using these in all my Combinators and songs.
