Does a channel exist or continue to exist when you are not playing a sound on it?
In other words could I set a channel’s properties [like volume, rate, and DSP] and then play a sound on that channel over and over again, without having to set all those properties every time I go to play the sound?
Or do you have to be playing a sound on a channel for it to exist [even if that sound is just paused]?

OK that makes sense for basic sound properties such as volume, pan, frequency and priority.
But I am also curious about channel specific properties such as DSP and some of the 3D attributes.
Right now, in my code, before I play a sound, I have to reassign any sound/channel specific DSPs to the channel every time I play it, even when I use the "Channel_Reuse" flag.
So that is what I am curious of, if it is normal for a channel to forget about its DSP, after a sound has finished playing? Or is FMOD acting weird on me?
