|Summary||0008843: Feature Request: optional Dry/Wet controll for Plugins in channel strip.|
|Description||I would like to be able to mix my processed Signal with the original inside the channelstrip. There is a lot of plugins that dont support that in their controls. I would like to add an dry/wet control to these Plugins inside the channelstrip. It is not too often it is needed so it could be also a hidden controll.|
Thank you for reading! :)

We have considered this before but so far chose to not implement it for the following reasons:
The problem is that the host does not know the correct way to do this without introducing artifacts.
Proper Dry/Wet control depends on the DSP (as does properly bypassing a plugin). EQs are a prime example for this.
Additionally this would introduce overhead, even though it is minute, it can become significant if the session scales up.
Ideally dry/wet is only added in place where it is needed, on demand.
For your case there are 3 options currently:
* Use Aux Sends to a separate bus to duplicate the steam
* Duplicate the track with a shared playlist, use different set of plugins on both
* Use Pin-connections to pass the signal around the plugin. Then Mix the result using a cross-fade or A/B plugin e.g. https://i2.paste.pics/de459e12bdc271e1844372ed68292f68.png
