To my knowledge, the moment you start playback the channel configuration returns to stereo. Isn't it so? Reaper behaves that way in at least v4.57 I've just downloaded off the site. Maybe Reaper staff has changed something errorneously in v4.58pre?
Once inserted to the track, it reads 2/8 in 2/8 out. Of course, if you assign more inputs to the plug-in, the number of channels increases as well.
It's the unexpected behavior that prompted me to post this as an issue...my existing projects now switch from stereo configuration to 8 channel in all of my Elephant instances. The first thing I noticed was that the RT CPU increased dramatically because I had re-sampling set to a higher value than 2x on each plug, and then I saw that the led bar-graphs were no longer just two but A-H or 4 pairs.
The latest revision mentions this:
"VST: temporarily disabled informing plugins of change in track channel count"
I was hoping that it would fix the problem but every instance still switches from stereo to 8 channel. I went back to 458 pre3 and it works as expected.
I'll stop bugging you about then ;)
