    That's pretty much it, this thing is fantastic and I'm starting to get a grip on it but, if I have two effects that I tipically would "insert" on a channel, I can't, how do you do that?

    To be precise, the Leisure compressor (that I prefer to the normal compressor of the channel for this particular use) and the Deesser on the Voice.

    You can't daisy-chain FX. Best you can do is insert the compressor across the channel, un-assign the channel from LR, run the channel into a bus, insert the de-esser across the bus, then run the bus into LR.

    Alternatively, use the FX as send-returns as opposed to inserts: channel feeds the FX1 bus, FX1 set up as the compressor, FX1 return un-assigned from LR, FX1 return feeds FX2 bus, FX2 set up as the de-esser, FX2 return into LR.

    Ok it looks like I have to study a little bit of the advanced routing.
    The result has to be simple , we should be able to control the level from the channel fader as usual as the others band member are not technical.

    Or I should fiddle with very narrow band eq on the voice and avoid the deesser.
