That would be one solution @The_Tone_Arranger and @Mike , but the thing is that when I’m working with a lot of tracks, and I have different settings for differents effects, e.g. EQ for the kick drum, snares, toms, etc, parallel compression for the all the drums in other bus, Different EQ for the acoustic guitar, some effects for the electric one; for the lead vox different for the backing vocals and so on. In my workflow I have each instrument together, drums, pads, guitars, keyboards, vocals (lead vox and Backing voclas), each group with their own busses or sends, etc. If I’m working with few tracks, then the busses could be near within the screen. But if I’m working with 17, 20, 25 tracks, this become not that easy (at least for me). In AA we can turn on and off the mute, solo, etc. panel with two keys, that it can be done. But not for the effects like in Pro Tools. Just one feature that could be cool and handy to have it. Now, I turn on and off busses and effects rack one by one to have a A/B comparisson, it’s possible to work that way but more time for that.
Of course I’m talking for music production, not radio or voice over production that the needs could not be so demanding.
Glad that we have this conversation
