I have a studio with 32 I/O (which is a decent amount these days) …but still not enough to do both tracking and mixing exclusively on different channels. External FX assignments don’t let you share/re-purpose input or output channels.
So every time I record something I use my input assignments, then when it comes time to mix and send stuff through my gear I have to re-assign everything.
Is there a better way?
(Why can’t external FX behave so they just over-ride Input channels when yo use them? That would be much better.)
