Feature Request: Multiple FX plugin  per channel  button,  and FX plugin manager

Aside from the current method of pinning multiple plugins (which is still fine btw), a breif outline seems to be that two areas would compliment the need for accessing and recalling multiple plugins groups.
The Feature request is as follows:
1. Viewing, and manipulating multiple plugins are often relevant at different times of recording, auditiining, and mixing. Since grouping plugins often relate to channels, a [FX] button on each channel, including Master channel would recall/save the current group of plugin effects on screen.

2. Alternatively, instead of the channel FX button, a "Plugin Manager" window could handle "scenes", or address the channel FX buttons as well. The Plugin Manager could even save these scenes for recall in other songs. I.e. "Sallie's vocal", "Nick's P Bass", "Song A mix with Comp", etc.

To save a string of plugins happens by current method of pinning, or holding down any relevant track(s) [FX] button, or designated plugin manager.

Want to change a channels current FX button group with another? Easy, open the plugin manager, and drag any other scene to that button, or other scene. 

This addition has a mimum of space requirements, and is in the context of better grouped FX plugin usage over the current pinned method. Yet allows for both to exist. Additionally, a channel FX button, and FX manager efficiently recalls, saves, and exchanges other saved FX scenes.  
TY for voting.

I'm brand new to Studio One.  One thing I notice - I must not be doing this right.  I can't login to the forum.  Then when I login at the Presonus home page and go back to the forum it says I'm still not logged in.  The only way I could like your FEATURE REQUEST was to GO BACK TO THE main presonus page, and then watch the GUI show that I'd still not logged in (I just had logged in BTW - I'm re-iterating to help you follow along in my nightmare). Then, without my doing anything, it refreshed on it's own and showed my name, so I then clicked again on the Up Vote of your Feature Request.

What am I doing wrong?

The reason I found your comment helpful is because I'm brand new, and when I open my instruments they show up as tabs, so even if I click the push pins they're still stuck together.  ANYTHING to improve on this for a new user will be helpful.  We new users feel like such idiots for the first hours...  :D
