Anyone know how to get more than 2 channels in Pro Tools LE with Schope wrapped in a VST to RTAS adapter? There is no sidechain input in the plug-in dialogue as there is in Logic, and as far as I know I can’t create a 4-channel track or bus. Please help if you can.
Love the plug in my trials in Logic so far BTW. Nice work Schwa!
Hello. I am interested in the answer to this question. I have gotten the evaluation copy of schOPE to work with Pro Tools LE 8 using FXpansions VST wrapper. Is 4 channels even possible in PT? Is it a PT issue or just a matter of coding a sidechain into schOPE? I’ve used a couple of Waves plugins that allow sidechaining…
I am sooo excited about using this plugin, and I plan to buy it later on today. Please let me know if more than 2 channels in PT is possible. Thanks.
Hi, unfortunately I don’t know the details of how the RTAS wrapper works, but ideally you would be able to send input to channels 3/4 by selecting that input as “key input” for Schope. I wouldn’t be surprised if the wrapped Schope doesn’t show a key input though, in which case channels 3/4 can’t be used in PT as far as I know.
Here is a screenshot of schOPE in ProTools. I have looked everywhere for a “key input.” My last hope is that someone will see something that I am not seeing and point out a way to route to channels 3 and 4.
If not, I will have to learn how to use Reaper, Logic, Cubase, or something that uses AU or native VST
You might want to check with FXpansion, as in this thread on gearslutz:

“DO NOT expect as already mentioned side chain to work when wrapped as the wrapper only supports 2in/out.”
Maybe Angus can make it happen, but unless it’s supported in the wrapper, it’s not going to have all four inputs in Pro Tools.
The work around that Ive found is to get the multi freq tool working.
- Set up a mono aux track
- Route the 1st signal thru the Key/Side Chain
- Route the 2nd signal thru a bus send, or set the input on your aux track directly.
Hope reviving this old ass thread can be of some use to someone.
