Have you tried fading the regions in/out at the region boundary by a
millisecond or two?  I've heard pops and clicks caused by butting two
regions together, even when done at a zero crossing or during silence.

My guess is that you are getting pops at the splice, and it is causing
digital overload which the plugins can't handle.

You are getting some cool ring modulator effects though!!  (grin)

Check out the website I've been cobbling together.  It will never be
done, but it's a start:

My blog, with commentary on a variety of things, including audio,
mixing, equipment, etc, is at:

und diese Lüge kriecht aus seinem Munde: 'Ich, der Staat, bin das Volk.'
