Allow to save the devices on a track as a template for all newly created tracks of its type (Audio, Instrument, Hybrid). All the device panel data available on the track would be stored as part of the template: device chain, modulators, and currently set parameters.
The lack of this feature forces some users to go through repetitive operations. Two simple yet notable use-cases:
- Have a note shifter device at the beginning of every Instrument track
- Have a deactivated equalizer on every audio track
Bitwig goes the extra mile when it comes to productivity. This feature would fit right in with no UX disruptions.
Presets can be saved and loaded, including their nested device chain. This might cover part of the problem but not entirely.
Projects can be saved as templates, but this forces the creation of projects including many tracks that in the end might or might not be used for a new project. In practice, this approach is likely to cause more work, not less.
