SOlo'n EFX Channels?

Actually, misleading title. What I want to do is hear an EFX channel within a song without hearing the (dry) source. The only way that I know how to even hear the efx channel solo is by assigning it to a separate output bus and muting the main, which is even worse than it sounds because i have to go into vst connections and disengage the control room by connecting say, the stereo out 2. some workflow assistance would be greatly appreciated.

if you’re asking why?, it would easier for me to align the rhythm of reverbs and delays and sculpt tones if i could just hear that against the music without the (dry) source track…for lack of a better term

I think the listen bus will do it for you.
