I am aware you can save as default audio or midi tracks, but i don't have any option to save a default for a plugin.
When I right-click i only see "Save as default configuration" if i click this and then drag the fx on to a track, nothing has changed.
Am I missing something?
thx
Group your VST and save it !

Right click on your vst and select group, an instrument rack appears, click on the disk icon to save a preset

That would only save the preset for the rack, not the vst itself.

(edit) I stand corrected: And the vst too, nice find!
With kind regards,

Oh, this one I should have shared a long time ago :
You can make a canon looper with a few delays in chain in a return track fed back to itself.

Set up your delay with no filter, no feedback, 100% wet. set the delay time and duplicate it to reach the time you want.
Enable the send for the same return track and set it at 0dB.
Duplicate the return track for each new voice and route the signal from the previous one.

(set it up with low volume because a mistake can lead to loud noise).

Map the "original" send to a foot controller to punch in. Map the delay chains' device ON to another to clear the canon.
