Studio Live III DAW mode control of Fat Channel DAW track plugin

Currently, in DAW mode. Hitting the Gate, Comp and EQ buttons do nothing. Would be great if they would automatically control the Fat Channel plugin of the related DAW track using full graphical display on the desk.

There is already a way to link to FatChannel plugin on a DAW track to an input channel on desk giving you graphical control of the DAW plugin but its not really designed for use in DAW mode. In fact you have to switch out of DAW mode to control the plugin graphically which makes it quite unusable for this purpose.

It seems to me the functionality to control DAW track FatChannel plugins is already in place. We just need it enabled automatically on every DAW channel rather than having to go via the input channel link route.

I actually just bought a SL24iii believing it already did this and I am considering sending it back because it does not. It would be great if I could get a thumbs up on the possibility of getting this feature implemented and it be a reason for me to keep the desk.

Or even this would meet my needs ....

Allow the onboard fat channel software work preinput to the daw thus saving resources and quicker response to signal flow.

This is one of the features I was counting on already being there when I bought my mixer and I was very surprised and disappointed when it wasn't because I actually use the fat channel plugin a lot in Studio One. As much as I love PreSonus I have to say that this feature's existence is an utter no brainer because the software exists on both sides and it should only a simple matter of letting those two sides communicate
