I’m not QUITE sure whether you can do this or not in C6 somehow easily, but I’d just LOOOOVE to have an option on Automation Panel to “suspend” Inserts and Sends in the same manner as one can suspend READ/WRITE. It wouldn’t be SUSPENDING to the exact meaning of the word, but I simply mean setting ALL active Inserts and/or Sends on ALL tracks (that have Inserts/Sends active) to BYPASS (and back on).
That way one could easily release some extra processor power + memory when you have a large project with countless Inserts + sends on several tracks, and you just have to, for example, record yet one vocal line again, etc.
Due to the heavy load of a fully plug-in equipped mixing project, the PC slows down so much that one has to tweak with the buffer values and that sucks.
Plus, I actually like to hear sometimes my project without any extra plugins (Inserts nor Sends) and currently it’s a tedious job setting dozens of buttons to bypass and then back again. And there really are other scenarios where that project-wide Insert/Send-bypassing would be a great feature.
