Open/Close Audio Insert 10 Plug-in Window of focused Track
Opens or closes the tenth audio insert on the focused track. Unlikely that I would have ten inserts. The key point here is “focused track”. There is no way to toggle the state on all of the selected channels/tracks.
Open/Close MIDI Insert 1 Plug-in Window of focused Track
Opens the plug-in window for the first MIDI insert plug-in. I need to explore MIDI inserts and the X-Touch. I don’t think the controller deals with MIDI inserts at all. First look indicates that it does not.
The header area at the top of a plug-in window is common to all plug-ins. You can use it to adjust the size of the window, link plug-in windows when more than one is open, switch the plug-in parameter view, and route side chain source signals.
Will the track receive further processing? Use an insert
Reverb, delay, compression, modulation, distortion—these are some effects that often wind up on auxiliary channels. You send some of your track to a reverb aux, and dial in as much as needed. But if the effect is meant to be used in a series and will receive further processing on the track level, it’s wiser to use the effect as insert even in parallel operation (as in, a chorus with a wet/dry control).
Worth considering. Logic Pro X instruments use both inserts and sends to achieve the fine results. There’s a reason for that.
