    Stereo AudioSuite Plug-ins

    I swear I've been able to apply EQ-3 and EQ-7 AudioSuite plugins to stereo clips in the past, but they're currently grayed out in MC 6.5.3.  Still available however as RTAS plug-ins on stereo tracks.

    Am I crazy? Has this always been the case?

    I'm afraid not. Certain Audiosuite plugins have never been available on stereo tracks. You can use them on dual-mono but that's not ideal when you are trying to manage your tracks in a sensible manner.

    It's a real shame. I spent several days trying to find a 3rd party plugin to replace the 3 and 7 band EQs but all options were about $1000 and not very user friendly in MC.

    It's frustrating because Pro Tools allows you to use EQ 3 as an AudioSuite plugin on stereo tracks.  Wonder what the limitation is with MC?

    Yep, I'm absolutely certain I've used the 7-band EQ on a stereo track just a week ago, but all of sudden it's grayed out like yours. Really frustrating.

    I started to use the Audio EQ Tool for Stereo Tracks. It's really just basic compared to the AudioSuite EQ. I mainly need it to immitate "Headphones" and distant Party-Music Stuff or ambiences/backgrounds.
    It's realy complicated to use the RTAS Effects when Avid limits you to 24 AudioTracks, when you have like 4-8 different EQ & D-Verb settings to work with...
