Not suggesting that GP move toward the “Channel Strip” paradigm…but how about a Master Rackspace, along with Aux Rackspaces?
- The Master Rackspace might be considered “part of” or “patched directly to” the audio out. Global effects can be patched to the Master Rackspace.
- Aux Rackspaces would be similar to bus inserts, which could be wired back as a Return or patched to one or more audio outs (e.g., 3 & 4 [while the Master Rackspace ->> 1 & 2).
The idea is to avoid having to load the same effects plugins in pretty much every Rackspace. Currently, the only workaround appears to be to open one or more additional instances of GP, each with Loopback.
Is this concept feasible…perhaps there’s a more efficient way…?
