Would this be a useful feature?

It's currently necessary to assign an instrument to a track, then load presets one by one in order to audition them.
I doubt there are very many users like me, who have over 190 software virtual instruments comprising around 200,000 instrument sounds.

However, Native Instruments Maschine (software) and Komplete Kontrol as well as Ableton Live, have the ability to allow sounds (presets) to be auditioned with a single click. Then, if desired, a double click loads the instrument and the preset. Might a similar feature be implemented in Studio One, where if an Instrument track is selected, the user can browse the instruments bin, audition presets with a single click and then, if desired, double click the preset to assign the instrument to the selected track with the preset loaded?

This would be a significant workflow enhancement and a very useful feature.
