Show Audio/Midi-FX on each Channel in Mix-View (like Logic Pro)

Post by comod » Fri Jun 18, 2021 9:32 pm

Hi!

I do not understand why this feature isnt a part of Ableton. If you have a look at "Logic Pro"s DAW you will notice that Instruments and Effects are way better organized and much better accesible

I can understand that ableton has another approach with their "effect chain view". but to see which Instruments or Effects each chanel has you must click on the Chanel. But i often want to bypass some Effects in the chain, Reorder or copy and paste them accros channels. This could be so much better done with a mix of both approaches. So why not combine the best of two worlds? This could be so cool, like no other DAW. On click on such a button in the overview should toggle on/off the FX and also jumps in the traditional chain-view to directly work with the Instrument or Fx (linked together). I also found this Max4Life-Mixer https://www.kvraudio.com/product/ultima ... in-kripper With a similar idea i think (i dont testet yet)

There's a way, or was, to do this using the options.txt file. It was never very stable (an experimental feature) and from what I hear, doesn't work on 11. A longstanding request by many. Along with being able to hide the launcher to have a larger view.

Never know that options.txt exists. I give it a try as soon as possible.
@ableton: please fix the bug and release this feature, especially when its there and only have this little tiny bug

Not going to happen sadly, that was a hold over from an experiment in Live 4.

In a perfect world, it would be nice to know the reasoning behind such design decisions.
