But, if an FX does not have a mapping already, all the params will still spill into the faders, albeit not in any useful order. I'm not sure that can be considered a real feature as is, but I'm thinking it would be really nice if CSI could automatically do something like that. Take the Console 1 with sections for certain params, and the fact that many params have the same wording: thresh/threshold, ratio/rat, input/gain/volume etc., could we have params that contain "xxx" automatically map to widget xyz? Maybe with an option to turn that feature on/off? Just thinking out loud.

That's a design philosophy question that I've pondered for over a dozen years now.

Here's how I come down on it.

Q: Why do you have a surface ?
A: To work more efficiently.

Q: If the FX parameters are just splayed out randomly, do you get ANY of the efficiency benefits ?
A: Not really

So, unless we could make a "super clever auto word match up " wizard, I don't think there's really much benefit there.

I think the VST monitor is about the best we can do, for now at least.
