Putting a new zone for reacomp in this way:

Zone Home
IncludedZones
Buttons
Channel|1-8
reacomp
IncludedZonesEnd
ZoneEnd

using GoZone reacomp, i have the same results, no command sent to plugin.
You could use a Page to do this as you have, but it's WAY overkill.

Just have a look at Console1.zon.

Code:
OnFXFocus MapFocusedTrackFXToWidgets
is the line you want to add to your MCU.zon file, something like this:

Code:
Zone Home
        OnFXFocus MapFocusedTrackFXToWidgets
	IncludedZones
		Buttons 
		Channel|1-8
	IncludedZonesEnd
ZoneEnd
Then make sure your ReaComp.zon file looks like this:

Code:
Zone "VST: ReaComp (Cockos)"
        FocusedFXTrackNavigator
        Threshold FXParam Thresh
        Character FXParam Gain
        Attack FXParam Attack
        Release FXParam Release
        Ratio FXParam Ratio
        Compressor FXParam Bypass
        Parallel FXParam Wet
        CompressorMeter FXParam GainReductionDB
ZoneEnd
Then, in the config panel, just point to the regular .zon folders, no need to make your own stuff up, although you can, as stated earlier, it's way overkill for this, there's a much easier way.

So to sum up:

Make sure the surface zone file that you use (MCU.zon in your case) has this line:

Code:
Zone Home
        OnFXFocus MapFocusedTrackFXToWidgets
	IncludedZones
		Buttons 
		Channel|1-8
	IncludedZonesEnd
ZoneEnd
and each FX that you want to use has this line right after the Zone line:

Code:
Zone "VST: ReaComp (Cockos)"
        FocusedFXTrackNavigator
        Threshold FXParam Thresh
        ...
The choice of FocusedFXTrackNavigator vs SelectedTrackNavigator is largely based on hardware, so you will probably change this once and leave it.

That's a whole lot easier than all the definitions you would have needed for the Page approach.

Pages are for more drastic changes like, say, going from the surface controlling RME totalMix to controlling Reaper.

where to put files, what to do (new group, new zone or whatever else...)?
If i can view a *.zon example it'd be great!


i feel dumb! hehehe

Tnx! :-)
The docs have been on hold until the architecture stabilized -- unless we see any surprises in testing, it's doc time.

That is, time to explain how it all works...

Yes, see Console1.zon for example.
