With the constant use of keyboard's shortcuts or the arrival of shortcuts launchers (including Elgato's Stream deck), users should have the possibility to launch instruments directly using shortcuts, without having to navigate through menus and subfolders.

Of course, those plugins should appear on screen for further Editing, unlike the actual shortcut's fx launcher, which add fx's on selected tracks but those fx's doesn't show up ...

What do you think ?

Nothing but a can of worms...I personnaly no longer work with NI Products and sold everything (hardware, software) except Massive.

Users want simplicity and easy access to the plugins they use on a daily basis.
