A question and/or feature request:
Have a preference to “display open insert plug-ins of selected channel only”.
Or is there already a way to effectively achieve this?
I select channel 1 and open to edit an EQ I have inserted on that channel.
Then I select, say, channel 4 and open to edit a Compressor and an EQ inserted on that channel.
Obviously, the EQ from channel 1 is still open occupying screen space.
This gets very messy when tweaking a number of inserts on a number of channels quickly.
I know that I could close open inserts before moving to the next channel.
But, in my view, it would be great to have a preference to “display open plug-ins of selected channel only”.
Or, at least, bring them to the front. This would apply only to inserts I had previously selected to edit on that channel.
I know, sometimes, you want them to stay open, thus the option. Or perhaps - my favorite - control click to lock it open.
This would speed up mixing a bunch.
Having this option on sends is less of an issue because they are usually more global. ie, a Reverb or something.
However, one other place this option would be fantastic is the surround panner window. I end up with 10 of them stacked up regularly.
Anyone else have these issues?
Or am I missing an existing way to do this?
