Sometimes, when it is a simple Mix Channel + Instrument then it is a help.
However if, like me, you don't put your Insert FX into the Inset "box" in the Mix Channel then it makes a mess, especially with devices like Pulsar that it seems to have no idea how to class.
For me putting Inserts into the Insert box is un-intuitive as the signal flow is visually broken. If I combined everything in the first place then I guess it would be a non-issue. Maybe a Template with a Rack of empty Combis...
I got quite used to the new behaviour without realizing the update had occurred but recently I have struggled with devices moving strangely so it's OFF and now I have to re-train to Ctrl Click and Drag All.
