Can someone please explain this for me. I add a Kuassa amp to an audio track and get sound coming out of both left and right speakers. I add any Kuassa effect and once again get sound out of both speakers. If however I bypass the amp I only get sound from the left speaker. I flipped the rack and saw that the right input on the amp has nothing connected. Dragging a cable to the audio track gives me sound in both speakers again when the amp is bypassed. I'm pretty unversed in this so can somebody please tell me. Thanks :)

If everything was stereo and a connection got lost when you dropped the RE, its probably a biug on the RE.

Try to reproduce and send to Kuassa.

Hmmm...it's not just Kuassa. It's Softube too. If I go to the track in the sequencer and select stereo input then both the right and left connect to the inputs on the amp. That said when I record I only get the left channel recording. Guessing that's to do with the inputs on my soundcard.

Edit: Sorry. Not Softube. Just Kuassa

This appears to be a bug with Kussa's bypass circuit. On the back panel, the second routing diagram shows that a mono input is fed to both left and right output. This is because you can pan the virtual microphones in the cabinet section of the device.

Notice that if you put the amp in an insert, and bypass it there it works as intended. Also, compare to other mono/stereo devices such as The Echo or the RV7000 - with a mono input and stereo output, bypassing the device keeps the sound centered (unlike with the Kussa amps). I tested all three guitar amps plus the bass amp, and they all have the same bug.

Definitely contact them and let them know this is not the "Reason way"! ;)

Thanks Giles. I thought it was just me missing something. In any case I’ve mailed them so we’ll see what they say.

Funny timing, I actually just emailed them about this same bug this morning! Hopefully they’ll get it taken care of.

Yeah. It's weird I never noticed it before.
