You load measurement plug-ins into the "CURRENT" channel, such as iZotope Insight, Span, Youlean, or PreSonus Spectrum Meter.
After selecting any channel (kick, bass, guitar / bus), the CURRENT channel and plugins attached to it are also activated.
Then you do not need to load the processor to load many measurement plug-ins on different channels, for example, to measure the spectrum or stereo image on the bass or synth channel, etc.
Who voted against, I have the impression that he did not understand the idea. If you don't want to use it, you don't have to enable this option. I've used this in FL Studio and it's very convenient.
You open the measurement plugin on the CURRENT channel and place it somewhere on the side of the monitor. And you see the audio measurement for each channel you are currently working on.
