Apparently, the counter of the demo plugs should start to decrease only when audio signal pass through it, but instantiating Assimilator on an insert on the master channel under Cubase, I see the counter starting counting immidiately although no signal is being processed. What is going on?
Some hosts - like Logic - only cause the counter to count down when audio is passing through the plug-in. Other hosts - like Cubase - cause it to count down as soon as the plugin is instantiated.
So essentially: this is an issue with your audio host program, not the PowerCore.
