Request Ability to Route a Delay Back into It's Own Channel

asked Nov 3, 2017 in Studio One Feature Requests by gregfries (440 points)

In DAWs like Ableton Live and Propellerhead's Reason, you can route a channel back into itself to create a feedback loop, which is can create feedback loops. This is an essential part of making some types of music. My question is: How in Studio One 3 can I send an effect back into itself.

So I have a drum on track 1. I have a delay on FX 1. I turn up the Send on track 1 to FX 1. NOW, how can I take the output of FX 1, and feed it back into the delay thats on FX 1.

In Ableton Live, the return channels have send knobs and you can click "enable send" to have the post processed audio sent back down the send channel again. Here is a YouTube video of somebody doing this in Ableton Live:

We dont need a "child proof DAW."
We need a DAW that does what grownups need it to do.
Let me create my own delays, please.

There are countless delay plugins that have a “feedback” parameter, why don’t you just put one of those in as an insert instead of a send?

Coming from Ableton I quite like how Studio One has some well-considered limitations like this, but that’s just my 2 cents. I felt like Ableton focused on a lot of sound design capabilities and flexibility at the expense of the everyday vocal and production work I was doing.
