Explode mixer 14:2 channels to tracks
I'm sure there might be some flaw I didn't thought of when writing this, but... here's the FS for discussion/evaluation to fix this issue once and for all (I would hope):

This would create as much pairs of Mix Device+Mixer 14:2 copies as there are used Channels on the original mixer device, but now, each of these copies would only have its respective mixer channel between its own Mix Device and the original devices, keeping the original settings of that channel(s) and any specific automation clips for that channel (and Return devices).

This cumbersome solution would have an even more idiotic fail safe feature: Any Send/Return Effect device(s) would be multiply copied for each of those new Mix Device+Mixer pairs. The user then would manually delete any of those FX devices from the pairs that didn't need them for optimization purposes although no action would be needed to keep the audio exactly as before (you could only end up with unused copies of FX on certain Mix Device+Mixer 14:2 tracks).


1 mixer 14:2 with:
  • NN-XT on Channel 1
  • Thor on Channel 2
  • Dr.OctoRex on Channel 3
  • RV-7000 on Return 1
each channel with automation lanes and specific Level, Pan, EQ, Aux settings

If this feature was available, one would simply right-click on that mixer 14:2 device, choose the "Explode channels to tracks" and you would end up with 3 new sequencer tracks: mixer 14:2 (1), mixer 14:2 (2) and mixer 14:2 (3)
  • Mix Device (1) + mixer 14:2 (1) + NN-XT still on Channel 1 + RV-7000 (1)
  • Mix Device (2) + mixer 14:2 (2) + Thor still on Channel 2 + RV-7000 (2)
  • Mix Device (3) + mixer 14:2 (3) + Dr.OctoRex still on Channel 3 + RV-7000 (3)
If, for instance, Aux 1 was set to 0 on the mixer 14:2 (2) device, then the user could optionally, for optimization sake, delete RV-7000 (2) device, because that would be idle.

Yes please. This is effectively what I am doing when a track uses sends or EQ on a 14:2 anyway but manually. A bit late for me to be honest, but it's a good idea.
