    I have been using an Audio Chain for quite a while with success,  but recently I am hearing an “Echo” in it. At times it sounds like I have the two identical Chains (there is only one!) in effect at the same time……No echo has been there in the past.

    Would appreciate some suggestions on how to get rid of this echo!

    Just a clarification below:
    Two of the Chains share the same hardware INPUT and OUTPUT,  but only <u>one of those TWO chains is active at any one time</u> so there shouldn’t be any problem having BOTH chains active at the same time resulting in a sort of an “Echo,” correct?  Those TWO chains are “alternatives” that I switch between depending on my needs at the time.   I have one of the TWO chains switched OFF always.  Perhaps the switching OFF wasn’t done properly.  I have always done that by “Disabling” the Chain (so the Green button below turns Red).  What about using the other TWO buttons of “Audio Bypass” and “Audio Mute”?   I tried the “Audio Mute” just now which fixed my problem and NO Echo is audible….BUT,  I am puzzled as to why that is???   I have never used that “Audio Mute” button before as I had NEVER has the Echo in my Audio (OUT).
    ANOTHER issue is that I sometimes notice that the name of an Audio Chain will have the words “COPY COPY” appear at the end of the name of the Chain!  WHY is that and perhaps that is related to the “Echo” I am hearing?????
    Awaiting advice & comments!

    I would use Audio Mute for this, as it keeps the processing going in the background, and you will have a cleaner switch.

    The echo could be related to different plugins in the two chains?

    But then the delay should be displayed in the lower part of the chain (next to the clock)

    The “Chain Copy Copy” names will show if you have a chain named “Chain” then click “duplicate chain”

    You now get a chain named “Chain Copy” and if you make a copy of that chain, you get “Chain Copy Copy”

    Hope that helps

    Thanks a lot Nikolai !

    I was just puzzled as I have been using your platform for a long time and I had not seen this “CopyCopy” before….

    OK on Audio Mute which I did try before I saw your answer and got things under control!
