So...sending to an intermediate which in turn sends to the actual FX and automating the volume of the intermediate track, right ?
Like this, which was posted long time ago already ?
I knew about this workaround but didn't post, because yeah, I consider it a workaround (admittedly gets the job done but it's NOT MIDI automateable sends per se in my book).
Did you really make all the fuzz about this ?
If I missed something, please enlighten me.
