Please give us the ability to Solo FX Return and FX Send directly. It is very helpful to hear what is actually being sent and what the effects are actually sounding like. It really helps to dial in the FX.

If you can only do one or the other please make it Solo FX return.

Until Presonus provides a simple, direct path to assign FX Rtn to solo bus, this work-around seems to work.

1) setup your effects per usual.  E.g., FX A gets 1 - 3 input channels.

2) create a subgroup, say Mix 15.  Assign to Main if it isn't.

3) in the main mix, scroll to where the inputs show the FX Rtns. In our example, select FX A Rtn, and assign it subgroup Mix 15, and unassign it from Main.

4) in the User Fader layer, assign subgroup Mix 15.  For convenience, add input channels 1 - 3.  

Now, when you solo the subgroup in step (4), you'll hear the FX Rtn bus.
