Currently we can connect a single output channel of a multiple output VST Instrument within the inspector. This way Studio One knows what Instrument Track belongs to what audio output channel. However when we want to put multiple output channels of one VST connected to one Instrument Track in a folder+bus in the console, it's not possible because the console follows expand/collapse of folder tracks.

I would like to request a feature where we can pick what output channels belong to an instrument track. So multiple channels can follow one instrument track's folder expand/collapse state when linked with show/hide. Obviously name linking should be disabled when more then one channel is selected. 

Additionally this could extend the Transform to Audio track in combination with multitimbral, multi output VST instruments too. Since then Studio One exactly knows what channels connected to the Instrument track need to be transformed to Audio.

It would be nice to have some sort of navigation in the inspector so you can quickly switch the connected (ticked) channels.

Note: I'm aware you can use a Multi Instrument to create a folder for multi output VST's, however it's limited to a single MIDI channel.
