Preload screen for multichannel FX
The way Sonar does it, for example...

Sometimes I don't want to use all 32 outputs Kontakt offers me, sometimes I don't want REAPER to create all those tracks that are soon gonna be deleted. It would be nice to have a window, before loading the VST, that asks if we want to have full outputs available, or just the first stereo output.

IMO it would be better to still create the routings in this case. REAPER should only HIDE the "unwanted" channels. This way you can get them back more easily later!

Just click [Cancel] on the Routing Confirmation window.

Perhaps renaming the 'Cancel' button to something better is a good idea. "Stereo" or "No extra tracks/routing" ?

Renaming the buttons would be enough.

"OK" -> "Create multitrack routing"
"Cancel" -> "Create stereo routing"

Just hiding is a bad idea because each track you create in Reaper uses CPU if it be used or not ;)
Hiding and disabling would just be the same as not actually having them anyway so would be useless too

I wonder why nobody suggested a "build user defined number mono/stereo outputs" of multitrack routing option, either as a preload screen like suggested in the FR and/or in the "build multichannel routing for selected FX" dialog. This could then be one stereo, all 32 outputs (in case of Kontakt) or something in between.
It's often that I want to use say 10 outputs and, unless I do it manually I have to let Reaper build all available outputs and delete the unneeded ones by hand. This would also cover the original FR imo. (Correct me if I misunderstood something)

I have voted and agree with evildragon that the current ok and cancel buttons are not descriptive enough of what the program is going to do next for you
