Im very impressed with the power and diversity in the Audio Mixer and the variety of effects available. But sorely lacking are a small library of presets for each. For example, when using the Reverb effect, most software (i.e. FCP & Logic) give you a variety of room size presets you can assign. This is much more intuitive then dials with numbers. Its good to have those dials for customizing, but when using a Chruos effect, a description to identify the myriad of sounds available from that device would be extremely helpful. Feature request made.
Ooooops, noobie error. By the way Colin, I hope you werent turning your head while you coughed ;-)
Don't feel bad; it's hidden a little too well, as far as I'm concerned, and not obvious at all as to how you'd access those. The presets themselves are often... hmmm... lacking? But, they can serve as starting points anyway, and get you where you want to go a little quicker. That said, I used the Dynamics compressor presets all the time on VO tracks and such.
