most people add it directly on the signal chain, it's best if you add it like a rev send and return

I've never had the chance to use Studio Vision - what makes it so special? Have you tried all the other (modern) alternatives? It's a pretty common opinion that PT's MIDI side is not so hot. Yes I have tried everything thats modern for the Mac OSX, I own Cubase SX2, DP4, & I demoed Logic what makes...
