PLEASE allow some sort of system so we can A/B mixes with automation. I do a lot of mix automation and would LOVE to be able to quickly try different ideas with automation. I thought Mix console snapshots was the answer, but apparently it simply ignores any mix automation, making true A/B mix comparisons impossible! How many people mix a song without automation?! Seriously!
If this is not possible with mix console snapshots, then consider updating track versions to include automation & Mixer data. You would need to add track version capabilities to bus & FX tracks as well in this option. This way you could then assign all tracks to a single track version ID (Mix A), duplicate the track version (Mix B), make your mix changes, and switch between A/B.
Mix Console snapshots ignoring automation seems like either a huge oversight, or too difficult to implement for this release. This thread is created to make sure its not an oversight and to prove that its worth the effort to implement.
