I didn't build drum racks using instrument rack before the actual drum rack introduction, mate. Whatever that s got to do with my original post I don't know!
the thing is simple - the drum rack is a hybrid of impulse and instrument rack, and as an individual new instrument it is one of the greatest ideas. Simple, easy to use, powerful and sufficient.
I'm 100% with You in terms of defending "group to drumrack" in context menu, more of that - I'm totally for the key shortcut, as this will make drum rack really defined tool.
For now the drum rack in AL9 is like banned for no reason. To use it one has to group and instrument, then add the drum rack in the parallel chain, then move the instrument to the drum rack, then ungroup the drum rack. while in L8 it was like one right click and one left click, and should be developed to available from the keyboard.
Btw you sound a bit condescending.
intentionally, FIY - lucky You to avoid blessing of the building drum machine in instrument rack - it was pain in the ass.
