Requested:  Dragging tracks to the Files Browser with a prompt for the name of the track template.

I'm coming from Reaper and track templates are used for many reasons.  I love being able to call track templates with a simple keyboard shortcut.  For example... One keyboard shortcut can run a Macro that can import a track template then cause the currently selected track(s) and the imported tracks be added to a track folder.  This is a workflow I use with MIDI tools like Melodic Flow.   

Sometimes, I even like storing custom multi-track setups as track templates (e.g. SquaredHeads Nora w/ 3 or so other channels, Addictive Drums 2 multi-tracked with extra effects and bus/folder track, etc.).  

I also like the wayt Ableton Live does this.  One can simply drag multiple tracks from the Session View into the Browser, and it contains everything.  That is some real convenience for those of us who want easy access to things without having to always import from a song file.

I fully agree. This is what I was trying to ask for Presonus. MIDI channel number and note fx are pre-routed. Presets for multiple MIDI tracks (in which instruments haven't been created yet) is a leap forward, I think it will make your work more efficient. In addition, when creating a MIDI channel, from the output channel number of the previous track I would like to have a function that can be created sequentially.
