Ah, yeah, of course what I meant only works when you stick to your one DAW.Of course. Many DAWs have this function. But once I make a preset in this, I can load it up in Komplete Kontrol, Sonar, Ableton, VE Pro, Acid, Cantabile, Vegas... anything I own now or will ever own that uses VSTs. Like maybe I will try Studio One or Reaper someday. And it won't matter if any of these hosts can work with VST3s, which a lot still don't. For example I can use Reason Rack in the old version of Ableton that I have. Otherwise I would have to pay $$$ to get the newest version.
But of course, there are reasons for using track presets and templates, particularly with the new features in 10.5. Every composer has to work out the systems that work best for their particular workflow. I believe this will be a useful addition to my toolbox. Maybe not for you.
Being less dependent on one specific DAW is indeed interesting.
