Allow us to map parameters of plugins across different tracks to a single, global control/knob

The Focus Mode is great and it's super useful that each plugin instance has its own mappings, but sometimes I want to control parameters of plugins spread across multiple tracks in one shot, or map them to a sort of global knob to tweak them all at the same time.  Sadly this is not possible.

  • Example: let's say you have two mixtools, one per track. You may want to use one knob on your midi controller to automate the gain of both mixtools simultaneously, while mantaining the relative position of each. 
  • Or maybe you want to tweak the cutoff on a VST Synth on track 1 while also affecting the cutoff on another VST on track 2, just by moving one single knob on your controller or a digital knob inside the DAW.

    Currently this is not possible (unless you create separate automation tracks for each plugin). I believe we really need this option, both for creativity and mixing purposes.
