ok before the pedantic types try to shut down discussion and tell me to open a ticket on github let me state that i am not sure that what i have observed would be considered a bug, or even what is going on. rather id like to discuss what is happening, like you know what forums are for etc.
i have noticed a couple strange things regarding the audio routing with the mindmeld mixer. the first strange thing is that if i try to insert a bark clamp compressor between a voice and the mixer the audio will glitch out and stop all sounds while disconnecting and reconnecting cables to put the compressor in line with the mixer. not just the audio for that single voice but the WHOLE patch. wtf is that about? its like the single compressor controls the audio of the entire patch sort of thing.
second if i place an ozone instance between the mixer and a recorder (both the vcv and nysthi stereo recorders) to use as a limiter its like the audio bypasses the host and goes straight to the recorder. several times i have inserted the ozone limiter in line set the levels well under clipping and observed the waveform in ozone while recording. yet when i open the recording afterward in a daw the signal is very hot and the audio clips as if there was no ozone in place when recording. its like the audio routing just bypasses straight into the recorder. very strange.
i can only conclude that the way the mindmeld routes audio is different than the way that other mixers like say the mshack mixer route audio and it leads the strange things. its like the audio routing is on a global level for a patch rather than a single module in the chain. i dont know if this stuff is considered a bug but its definitely not behaving as expected.
