Do I need ASIO outputs?

    I have been reading the help files and working on the DSP with SX, and now I'm not sure of the following. I have a number of ASIO inputs connected into SX, and have connected the outputs to KX Out 0/1. However, is this the best config? I ask because the help says: "Note that most applications that open the 'Wave 0/1' device in 'stereo' or 'mono' mode are not affected by software processing because it is automatically turned off". I don't really understand the last bit, but assuming SX does open the Wav 0/1 device, are we not sending ASIO and Wave to the same bus. Is this optimal? Would it be better to choose (say) KX Out 11/12 for all outputs? For a test, I tried a different bus with for MIDI- used KX Out 10. Sound came out of FXBus10 as expected, but also out of 2/3. So, if it by default comes out of 2/3 AND I connect the ASIO Output up to KX Out 2/3, is it not connected twice? Is this something to worry about or not?

    I know this is all now to me, but having read a lot about FX, I thought I'd have got the hang of it by now!! For example, the help says: "All streams route to bus 13/14 by default, which acts like send/return for reverb and chorus effects in the default setup." but I have monitored 13/14 output and don't see any output..??? Anyone help with my understanding of this???

    Hi,

    Normally you will not need more than one stereo output from your ASIO host (Cubase, Nuendo, etc.)

    But there are cases, for instance:
    - Situations where you need more than 2 speakers, like surround mixing
    - If you want to use kX DSP effects from within your program.
