    FX Bypass - recalling plugin state
    Hi Steve, love your tutorials - great stuff. I often like to have several instances of compressors, EQs, effects etc. on a channel strip so I can compare them. Some of them will be on and others off. So, while the FX Bypasser works great for turning all effects on or off it doesn't work so well if you have some that are in the off state already. Is there a way in the environment to determine if an effect is off or on and store that? That way you could turn off the effects that were on and then turn them back on, leaving the ones that were off off, returning the channel strip to its original state.

    When it comes to the environment the answer is almost always yes. The question is: Is the time it would take to program worth the resulting outcome? There are ways to store different data states using the mapset option in a transformer. So you could set up a bunch of transformers to "remember" the current state of a channel strip's state in order to create an intelligent FX ByPass! Try it! :)
