I am aware of how send/return works. In real life the signal would of course only show on the channel it is actually producing. Thats not why I wrote this post.
Point is that I use sends a lot. I usually have many tracks going at once. And the scopes help out a lot to see what is going on. A visual overlook if you may. Let’s say a plugin fails for whatever reason and the channel goes silent, it is way easier to spot the error if I can see the waveforms at all times.
Besides. Why take them away?? Just why? At this point? We’ve been sendig tracks for yyyeeears with the mother tracks still showing waveforms. And we managed! Hopefully this is just a glitch in the matrix and we can get the waveforms back.
Maybe just change the color of the waveform if/when it sends. That would actually be helpfull. As it is now, this update is destructive. Pointless at best.
