Plugins are not visible

Post by Odypromus » Mon Nov 22, 2021 9:11 am

Hello
It has happened to me several times, not being able to view the plugin for editing.
As you can see from the bottom image, I have the "TB Compressor" button lit but you can't see it.

A week ago, this happened right in front of the client while I was working on some of his tracks... I had to restart the PC twice to not happen again. But I don't think this is the right procedure, nor does it make any sense to restart the machine because of anything that happens.

Has this situation ever happened to anyone else?
How can I solve this problem??



UPDATE:
When opening other projects, I can see the plugins so that I can edit them,
When creating new projects, I can also view plugins.

At the moment, on the bottom image project, I can't see plugins, but not all of them. All TB plugins (compressor, bus compressor, DeEsser and EQ), Graillon and Classic Limiter do not also open.

In the upper image from another project, it is shown that I can see the plugins in just a few tracks, for example, the TB compressor is turned on in track 4.4 but it just doesn't appear...

It's impossible to work with Mixcraft like this!!!

Hi,

Try to display the missing plugin, then click on the View menu and select Center all Windows.

Does that help?

Maybe a video card driver update?

Hi,

Well, you certainly don't want to close it. You're having trouble getting it to display, but when you do select that option, does the highlighting change on the name of the plugin?

What if you click on FX, do you see the plugin properly listed in the FX dialog? What if you click the Show option there?

It is not the most practical way however, it minimizes the problem:

Step 1: Select the track in question
Step 2: Go up, to "MIX" menu
Step 3: Select "Edit global effects"

This way, the plugins for editing appear.

Note: After closing the dialog window of the (FX) plugins applied to that track, it is necessary to repeat steps 1 2 and 3 to go back to editing again if necessary.

I didn't have the problem completely solved, but Greg, your tips here and another one there, plus what I'm managing to discover through some logical reasoning, somehow, it helped a lot!

Even unhappy, I appreciate all the help, concern and promptness.

Compliments

Hi,

Selecting that option from the Mix menu would display the effects on the Master track. It wouldn't display the effects on individual tracks.
