Well I guess the 8 QC’s come from some of the controllers available at the time they made it, such as the Mackie Controller. And the idea might be more that you specify the 8 main function you wanna control for that channel. Which is why being able to change QC value faster through learn (as you can’t right click learn on VST2 plugins) would be essential.
But I also agree presets are handy. It’s a way of having a setup that is always the same and can work across multiple channels.
So maybe we should also have access to that Preset drop down through key commands then, so that could be changes faster.
Could also easily see QC be expanded with more channels as there are plenty of devices that could support that.
