i waste (/ spend) a lot of time on this when doing larger mixing sessions-- say you have all your channels going to your 2BUS, but realize you do not want certain tracks treated with your 2BUS compressor. you need to create a ‘pre 2BUS’ and re-route to it every track that is currently being sent to the master out, apart from the tracks you don’t, and move the 2BUS insert plugins to this new ‘escape bus’. this can take up a lot of time, while it’s something that could be rather easy to program. it could even be implemented to the project logical editor.
something like: if a channel’s routed to bus “string”, re-route to bus X. possibly implemented in some sort of visual matrix.
the direct out functionality is nice for instantly switching the routing, but it will not automatically select for you the channels you want to switch the routing of.
anyone else finding this useful?
