Considering the plugin pin matrix is a major pain point for users, may I request adding a couple sentences toward the top of this section that actually describes what each box's "intersection" actually applies to (in various contexts, if needed).

In fact, I'm currently at a loss as to what "inputs" and "outputs" are being referred to and why the arrow directions are as they are. (Anyone feel free to point me to a forum post that goes into this...)
OK, you might care to look at this then.

Please keep in mind that many people - including most definitely myself - have difficulty in understanding theoretical concepts and only ever really get to grasp them after some hands-on experimentation.

Understanding concepts to the extent of being able to apply them isn't always quick and easy. It took me several false starts before being able to use this with confidence. That's just the nature of the learning experience sometimes. More complex issues take longer to learn!

My approach here, as elsewhere, is to give people enough to get started ... after that it's up to you.

I will make an FR for this matrix, but meanwhile just an explanation of exactly what inputs and outputs are meant at the top of the matrix (i.e., the plugin at hand's) is needed on p331 imo.

It's a matter of explaining what something is first, rather than illustrating something that hasn't been described yet with an example...
Not having had any feedback from you on the suggestion I posted above, I'm including it in the next User Guide update anyway.

p. 426 "Visual loopback audio hardware setting."

Should be "Virtual loopback" not visual.

An explanation of what this does would be nice. I have no idea...
