Plugin configuration#

The Splitter is first dropped into the signal chain to the left of the point at which the data should be split. Then, the two output paths are selected by clicking the arrow buttons on the Splitter editor. Additional plugins can be dropped to the right of either output path. If a Splitter is only connected to one output, it will have no effect on the signal chain.

The names of the data streams in each branch of the signal chain will be appended with “-A” or “-B” to indicate that they have passed through a Splitter:
