My pleasure. Thanks for highlighting this long wished for request!
Hmm, that sounds a lot like, simply more inserts (for those that add more inserts).
Especially, if it’s going to be showing near the inserts area in the console. And if it’s not, it may be confusing to new users of Cubase. They might ask the question, “why are there two sets of inserts in the console?” It might add, ironically, more complexity than it aims to take away. E.g., a pre/post inserts button.
But I think a chainer could also be useful for other reasons, but not as a replacement to console-level inserts.
If the desire is to see a chainer as an addition (and stop-gap), then I’ll change my vote, as I’m not against the chainer to use as a chainer. And I’m not against seeing arrive first… mostly, because all hope that Steinberg cares about this issue is lost anyway
