Summary 0000293: plugin automation for enabled/bypass status
Description I believe it is important that plugins should be enabled and disabled via automation.
(Logic Platinum has this feature right next to the volume and pan automations)
For example,a live performer doesn't his wah wah or distorcion effect activated the whole time, hi only activates it when he needs it.
Additional Information I think there should be an automation track for the enabled/bypass status wich should have only 2 values: 0 and 1 therefoe ,I suppose, making it less complex.

this might just make the feature freeze cutoff.

Just to remind you of this one and to see if you were interested in including this feature in a release.

actually, its a lot *more* complex if its done right, because turning the plugin on/off will probably produce clicks. however, i suspect that some basic version of this will make the 1.0 list.

Just checking to see if any progress has been made here. We're on 2.7.1 now (actually 2.8 but I don't have the OSX binary yet, so please disregard if it's been implemented in 2.8)

also see a similar request for mute automation. http://tracker.ardour.org/view.php?id=560 [^]

I mention it here because they are both boolean parameters, which Ardour currently treats as a 0.0 to 1.0 float. If that behavior were changed, it would have (positive) ramifications for a lot of stuff.

@paul: shouldn't it be the plugin's perogative to handle nice bypass switching?

show me a plugin API that provides a way to do this, and I'll use it. you can turn plugins on and off. I've never seen a bypass method.
