Default Difference between "offline" and "bypass"

Hey all,

I'm very new to Reaper, so this may seem like a very stupid question, but although I have read the whole manual, I couldn't find any explanations about this there nor here (sorry if I missed it). So what is the difference between bypassed and offline FX?

Thanks a lot in advance

Brett

Hello,

bypassed means the plugin is pulled out from the fx chain but it still works (consumes CPU and so) though no audio is passed through it and no audio is taken from it; offline means like the plugin is completely turned off (it could also be unloaded); in other words, offline is *much* heavier (and more risky, if the plugin is not coded to support well unload and reload) than bypass.
