This should be a pretty basic feature to implement, and it will save us that use external hardware so much time!
If there was an option to bypass the external plugins during render and/or export so that you didn’t have to real time export it would save a lot of time for those recording demos/exporting tracks for reference. This is particularly annoying for me as I compose longer music for orchestras or progressive rock so the tracks are in the region of 10-20 minutes sometimes, so others might not see the trouble. But if I’m rendering multiple tracks for a band or orchestra to learn, it takes so long…
At the moment you have to manually remove the external plugins to enable the fast bounce, and then put them back again afterwards.
I realise this would only be useful for a small select user group, but it should be so easy to do!
