    1. Is the "Expression" control (responding to CC#11) on the channelstrips meant for controlling volume solely? Find it a bit strange, why two volume controls?

    2. Can it be removed somehow? I have a plugin which correspond to CC#11 but because of the expression control it never reaches the plugin.

    1) No, and yes it is a bit strange having (by default) two volume controls on a channel strip.

    2) Yes. You can break the mapping in Layout mode by going to MIDI thru and select Do Not Pass Thru. Alternately/additionally, you can re-map the control in Edit mode

    Ah yes, but that won't pass cc#11 to my plugin.
    So I guess the only way is to use a controller assignment for that parameter?

    The cc11 is passed through if you map the screen control to the plug-in parameter of your choice. Is this not what you want to do?

    No, I'd rather have a clean midi-cc chain directly to the plugin. That way I can put any plug in on any channel I want without any further adjustments. No screen controls needed. Of course that only works with plugins that respond to CC directly.

    Anyway, it seems I'll have to map CC#11. I can live with that. Just wanted to make sure.

    Glad you can live it ;)
