This would be much faster than putting mixtool on everything.

+1 for this feauture. Also include an automatic “stereo to mono” automation line feature without needing to insert the binaural plugin then adding the mono parameter to the automation chain. I would prefer to do this rather than duplicating complete track and switching the duplicate to mono. Especially since this can’t be configured on the master fader.

Yes please or could we at least have default plugins appear on all new tracks of a certain type? For example, all new instrument tracks add an instance of VIP. All new audio tracks have an instance of Mixtool. Stuff like that.

Yes please!!!

Totally agree with phase button on the track instead of an insert.

So much more time effective.

He is really right. Doing automation through an audio file is very much disrupting Studio One's "fluency". It's annoying to throw Mixtool on every channel. You know, a very important topic for mixing.

Future update should definitely be this.

Mixtool almost, but not quite, does the trick but then we could also put the channel level fader and pan controls in a plugin. The key here is ergonomics. It doesn't make sense to bury such frequently used functionality in a plugin. That's why it would be better to make it an integral part of each channel.

The reason why I say Mixtool doesn't quite cut it is because the Gain knob is not full-cut i.e. does't go to -Inf. In my opinion automating faders is a bad habit. I use them for sculpting the overall mix, while any volume automation is handled by a volume control plugin that's neatly tucked away. This is where a gain knob would be extremely useful, since I do volume automation on most tracks. Of course, the gain knob needs to be able to go all the way down to -Inf to do things such as fade-outs and whatnot.
