As I liked the ToneDirect feature of the Line6 UX8 I have for Reason I guess I didn't notice that so much as a hassle as I'd have to do it anyway to get back to the dials of the sound I played.
I always record a stereo channel with amped signal left and dry signal right to be able to get back to the dials while still not taking away too much processing headroom with amp simulations (those are quite the bitch DSP wise).
Plugin latency issues? Phasing on parallel channels? Want to know the real latency of your audio interface? Try the VMG-01!
