There's a lot of great automation for Note FX, but no way to turn them on/off via automation (e.g. to have an arpeggiator only kick in for specific parts of a song).

Would love to see either a bypass or on/off parameter available for Note FX so this could be achieved.

YES! I've been trying to figure it out all day, I gave up and realized it can't be done. I'm trying to do glitch effects in a transition and it's been a friggin' nightmare due to this because the sequencer of glitch doesn't line up with the piece that I want to do it.

Another request for this.

I'm working on a track where I have a legato violin for 14 beats, followed by an arpeggiated pizzicato for 2 beats. As things stand, I am using 2 tracks to achieve this, one to control the legato and keyswitch midi, and another to control the arpeggiated midi. This seems a little clunky in a product that generally prioritises work flow fluidity.

Obviously, this isn't a massive problem, but it would be nice to have it all contained in one track.

Please add this.  The inconsistency of being able to automate the bypass (or power state) of virtually everything else, including 3rd party VSTs, but NOT capable to do so with an internal PreSonus function is odd and frustrating.  Seems like a big oversight.  Really limits the usefulness of Note FX, and forces a person to look at other products like Cthullu and such when NoteFX is right there.

I'm not a developer but this seems close to an oversight. Bypass automation. I've already finished four songs where I spent hours trying to find a workaround. This time I'm kinda stuck. Please add a bypass automation, wither to the input mode or just FX bypass. Thank you

I've used Studio One for years and I just started messing around with Note FX for the first time. I can see how there might not be as many votes for this since it's a pretty specialized feature, but it's really surprising to figure out that with all the automation you can do with Note FX, there's no basic ON/OFF. It's the first time I've noticed such a glaring omission in this software. It kind of feels more like a bug fix than a feature request, and a long overdue one at that.
