Allow MIDI Instruments to be turned on and off via Automation, not simply bypassed.

When using S1 as a performance tool, it would be helpful to be able to toggle VST instruments and plug-ins on and off with automation. For example if auditioning several VST Instruments on one midi channel, powering one or more on can overload the CPU. If these could be automated to be turned on and off as needed via automation instead of just bypassing them (as that doesn’t remove them from using CPU resources) it would free up the system to better operate.
