What’s the point of this “feature”? I mean, I usually try to set up my VST-instruments / effect chains to sound a certain way, but when you are to render a selection you have to either temporarily add gainers / boost the overall volume, or boost the volume of the resulting sample.
Why not simply make it render what you hear in the first place? In my opinion, that’s what render implies…
In all seriousness though, I render a VST to a sample in order to be able to chop up the sound, apply pattern commands and maybe save some CPU power.
In the end, I find it very hyperbolic to have to readjust my master/track volume every time I decide to render or re-render. I understand it may be beneficial to have this cut when rendering the complete song but when it comes to samplejobs it just hampers the work flow.
