Why are FX channels treated so badly?
If I want to insert a plugin, I go to a slot and insert a plugin. But if I want to load an FX, I must first create that FX to be loaded. WHY? Why can’t we just access the FX menu for instantiations, just like the plugin menu for insert?
Even after the FX is setup, the treatment is different. I can open and close an insert at any point for adjustment. But, once an FX is set up, I’m limited to amount and pre/post status. I have to go through a whole process to access the FX, that isn’t required for inserts and, once I do I have to use the cursor to adjust the controls. If I want to use my encoders I have to go to the FX SOURCE, which is now treating it as an insert, then I can use my encoders.
Why this big discrepancy?
