Currently using Buss channels as FX channels. Would like for FX channels to be able to be routed into other Fx channels.

Also. Want stereo/mono switch on the channel.

Thank you.

That’s some Pro-Tools type stuff there. Way too many workarounds to get a simple thing done, which is why S1 is becoming the superior DAW in the first place.

For now, I just use busses and cut out the FX middle man.

Thank you for responding.

Perhaps they could create a preference: "Dragging plug-ins from the browser to mixer-sends area creates BUS instead of FX channel"?

It would make sense. Currently, I don't even see the reason why FX channels exist in S1 given how they are set up when you can just use a standard bus instead and have more functionality.

Found a solution - hold ALT while dragging and dropping an effect to a send slot and it will create a BUS instead of FX.

Buses and FX work differently if you are using a Faderport. If I use buses for FX I lose the ability to focus on effect tracks using the faderport - a FX bus is just a bus like any other. FX have a dedicated key on the Faderports, that’s my main reason for using them. So, obviously there’s a need to have sends from an FX track to another.
