Save mixer plugin template

is there a way to prevent playback templates to touch the current mixer plugins or save a set of plugins with the template?

When I try to compare the playback from different playback templates I always have to deactivate the reverence reverb, insert my favorite (currently mcharmverb) and replace the compressor with maximizer. Obviously I could compare using the standard setting with reverence and compressor but I do like the other combination much more.

P.S.: Nice that 4.3 now provides a standard playback volume selection in preferences.

No, at the moment there’s no way to do this, but this is definitely something we want to work on in future.


Thank you for the fast answer!

I had hoped that there was already a method, so let’s keep fingers crossed that it happens soon.

I’d also like this. I’ve made a playback template for a specific instrumentation lineup using various different virtual instruments and would like to save the volume balance and panning . And ideally effects too.
I’m guessing the workaround is to save a project as a template, but if I understand correctly at the moment the mixer settings can’t be loaded into an existing project along with the playback template.

I’d just save the setup as a blank project and copy that each time I needed it.

Yes, you’re correct: you can’t currently load specific mixer settings as part of a playback template, but this is something we intend to implement in future. Your approach of using a saved project template is what I would advise for now.
