Well I don't think a plugin host can ever do the right thing unless
it is AMB aware itself. For a multichannel compressor the gain has to
be the same in all channels, AMB or not. So you can't just replicate a
mono plugin. For the compressor I'm developing, in AMB mode only the W
channel affects the gain. A host can't arrange that, unless 1) the
compressor is multichannel by design and 2) it has a separate detector
(sidechain) input and 3) the host allows you to send just one channel
of a multichannel track to that special input. Maybe A3 can do that.
