Surround Mixing (Producer and Studio only)Surround effects ► How to patch and configure surround effects

The SurroundBridge patches multiple instances of the effect you chose into the bus’s effects bin (however, only one effect appears in the bin), with default assignments of surround channels to plug-in instances.
2.
On the SurroundBridge tab of the effect’s property page, use the drop-down menus in the Left Input and Right Input columns to assign individual surround channels to instances of the effect.
2.
Make some adjustments to the automatable parameters you want to unlink (non-automatable parameters are not linked together). You can select parameters on any tab. SONAR will automatically capture which controls you change and unlink them from the corresponding controls for the other surround channels.
3.
When you’re finished adjusting parameters, click the Unlink Controls button again so that it’s not red.
Now you can adjust the parameters you adjusted, without automatically adjusting the same parameters that are on other tabs of the effect’s property page. As long as the Unlink Controls button is not red, all other controls will remain linked.
A list of the parameters that you unlinked appears in the Unlinked Controls field on the SurroundBridge tab, with the instance number listed in the Plug-in # column of the Unlinked Controls field.
To view a list of the automatable parameters in a particular effect, uncheck one of the Controls Linked to Group check boxes on the SurroundBridge tab, and read the list in the Unlinked Controls field.
1.
In the Unlinked Controls field on the SurroundBridge tab, select the parameters you want to relink—if the parameters you want to select are adjacent, you can SHIFT-click the first and last ones in the group. If they’re not adjacent, you can CTRL-click them individually.
2.
Click the Relink Controls button.
2.
Find the instance you want to unlink in the Plug-in # column, and uncheck its Controls Linked to Group check box.
The parameters you unlinked appear in the Unlinked Controls field, with the instance number listed in the Plug-in # column of the Unlinked Controls field.
Note: To relink all of an instance’s parameters, recheck its Controls Linked to Group check box.

On the SurroundBridge tab of the effect’s property page, uncheck the Enable check box of the plug-in you want to disable. The instance’s tab becomes greyed-out when you do this. You can re-enable the instance by rechecking the check box.
The Enable check box is a separate bypass system from the Bypass button that is on the instance’s individual property tab. Disabling an instance by using the Enable check box lightens the CPU load by taking the instance out of the processing path. The Bypass button on the instance’s property tab does not change color when you click the Enable check box, because it is a separate system. The Bypass button is automatable in some plug-ins.
2.
In the Presets field of the effect’s property page, type a name for the preset, and click the floppy disk icon that’s just right of the Presets field.
