Ability to insert a Mixer Channel into a Mixer without an instrument loaded.

I'm preparing a template with a mixer layout, but to insert a channel some instrument must be loaded. I have about 100 of these channels (then I don't use all of them) and I would like to load an EMPTY channel into a template, to which I can then attach an instrument.

What's your use case?  IOW, what benefit is there to having an empty Instrument Channel?

I created a new Instrument Track and saw that the mixer does not show it (as you have seen).

Sometimes, when the software does not let us do something it is because we are doing it the hard way.

@tothrec I need empty mixer channels for my template, I set up a mixer, color and call channels in a mixer, set "Sends" and "Buses", channels for parallel compression, I put my favorite plugins, but I don't know what instrument I will use yet.
That is why I would like to be able to insert an empty mixer channel.
