I’m running into situations where I have a lot of effects in a mixer group and it’s becoming quite a literal drag to not just horizontally scroll, but visually differentiate them into smaller “sub-groups” if you will.
Here’s my challenge: with effects that have local parameters, I really like using an Effect Chain NOT just for easy “drag-and-drop multiple effects” but the organizational convenience of being able to rename the chain, as a shorthand annotation of what all the effects within are doing. I can also visually collapse an effect chain, temporarily condensing what I see.
But in a mixer group, it appears I don’t have that luxury. While I can add Notes on the left, this is not directly tied to any effect or group of effect, so it’s not as “in-context”.
Are you aware that you can double-click on any effect’s title bar in order to collapse it? This makes the controls of the effect (other than its bypass button) inaccessible, but makes it a lot easier to keep large numbers of effects on-screen at the same time.
