I work with audiobooks and just upgraded from WL9 to 9.5 and it struck me how often I use the option to disable the “Exclude bypassed plugins” option when I Render a selected region in place.
I’ll give you an example: I’ve got a narrator who makes some rustling noises (clothing or script or whatever) from time to time. I usually learn the rustle in iZotope RX spectral denoiser, a plugin which I keep bypassed since I don’t want it applied at playback. With Exclude Bypass disabled I can easily apply the plugin when the noise occurs, without having to click the bypass button all the time.
The same goes for when I correct sentences which could have a slightly different frequency response, say just a little bit more highs. In that case I keep a high shelving EQ bypassed, applying it quickly and without hearing it at playback.
Is there anyway around this newly removed function now in WL9.5? I seem to be the only one missing this option!
