Insert Plugin On Next Free Slot (Intelligent)
A script that will insert a plugin (multichannel or multi-mono) on any size track / insert channel width in the first available slot. Can be used across mutltiple tracks with different channel widths. No need to specify the plugin channel width, the script handles that for you.
This script will allow you to intelligently instantiate a plugin across multiple channel widths and multiple tracks.
No need to specify the channel width when entering the path to the plugin.
ex. - You only need to enter "Channel Strip", not "Channel Strip (mono)" or "Channel Strip (5.1)".
The script takes care of that for you.
You can also specify either a multichannel or multi-mono plugin.
If a multichannel version of the script is not available, you can set the option to use the multi-mono version instead.
Tracks with no free insert slots will be skipped.
This script will NOT intelligently insert plug-ins that change the track or plugin width (Ex. plug-ins that are (mono/stereo or downmixers)
