I dunno if anyone else is getting this bug, but Reason always seems to route Exponential Audio plugins as mono devices in the rack even though they are full stereo.

Is there a work around to get the routing to work properly?

It's been mentioned before in the EA sale threads - I can't remember what responses people had from iZotope or RS.

Thanks that seems to work for now. I guess I'll have to drop Izotope an email to pressure them to do something.

I got an email back from them last week. They said they will bump this issue for the developers. Sounded like they forgot about it.

Yeah. They finally got back to me. They asked for screenshots or a video describing the issue, which they said will be logged for their team to investigate in the future as apparently it takes time.

I'm surprised the dev team hasn't looked at it yet. I'm definitely not the first person to report this.

This is the response I received back in April...

In response to the mono routing bug:
This is actually a new bug in Reason only that we're working with Propellerhead to get fixed, my apologies for any inconvenience in the meantime.
In response to the GUI and optimization:
We have yet to make any large updates to these plugins other than compatibility updates, so they're not quite up to speed with the optimization and performance that "normal" iZotope products have, but there are lots in the works here! I'll make sure our development team is aware of the instantiation time difference.
So it sounds to me like perhaps this bug report got thrown in the list of the things to deal with when updating the Exponential plugins to be more like "normal" iZotope products...

Also, the Exponential plugins still use iLok only and not the iZotope Product Portal and they don't display as products under the iZotope user account (although iZotope says they can see my ownership of Exponential plugins). So yeah—I think there's a few things they need to address and bugs might have been bundled with that to-do list.

I wouldn't be surprised if these algos get included in a new iZotope reverb product line (big version, essentials version) now that Michael Carnes/Exponential is part of their company. Will PhoenixVerb, R2 etc remain separate products, just with an iZotope facelift? Or will they disappear and users get moved onto the new reverb that contains the algos? Whooooo knows.

My guess is that Neutron and Nectar will be getting better reverbs at some point. The new BT Stutter Edit has a reverb effect, not sure if its from Michael Carnes.

IIRCC the ad said it was "BTs reverb", so a convolution is my guess.
