Logic Pro X Busses (and plugins) turn "gold" and dont work?


New Member
I notice when something is blue it works and when its yellow (gold) it does not. I have effect bus tracks with EQ for guitars and sometimes they turn gold and no sound will go to the bus track. If someone could help me out with this I would be super appreciative. Ive been trying ALL day to use the I/O plugin to run hardware effects like a DBX 160a on a kiick and cannot for the life of me get that to work either. That is turning gold as well.. Im a newb and I have dyslexia so please be very simple with your answers if you can help out. See pic>
