From the Insert menu, choose Audio Assignable FX from the submenu (or click the Insert FX button in the Mixer). The Plug-In Chooser window appears.
Click each plug-in you want to add, and click the Add button, or browse to an effects package. The plug-ins appear at the bottom of the window in the order in which you added them.
To reorder the plug-ins within the chain, simply drag a plug-in button to a new location, or click the Move Plug-In Left or Move Plug-In Right buttons.
Once you have added all of the plug-ins and specified the plug-in chain order, click the OK button. The new chain is added to the Mixer window, and the Audio Plug-In window appears.
Adjust the settings for the effects. For more information about using specific plug-ins, click the Plug-In Help button .
When you create an assignable effects chain for your project, the Remove Assignable FX command is enabled on the Tools\Audio submenu so you can delete a chain from the project.
If a plug-in supports it, you can use envelopes to automatically adjust effect parameters over time. To automate assignable effects, add automation envelopes to the assignable effect’s audio bus track.

For more information about using specific plug-ins, click the Plug-In Help button in the Audio Plug-In Window to display the plug-in’s help file.
Adding an Assignable Effects Chain
From the Insert menu, choose Audio Assignable FX (or click the Insert FX button in the Mixer window) to create an effects chain to which you can route tracks in your project.
You can create up to 32 assignable effects chains in your project, and each chain can contain up to 32 effects.
To add effects quickly, you can drag plug-ins and plug-in packages from the Plug-In Manager window to the Mixer window. Drop on an existing assignable effects control to add plug-ins to the chain, or drop on an empty area of the Mixer to create a new assignable effects control.
When input monitoring is on during audio recording, audio effects chains that contain non-in-place plug-ins are displayed in yellow () to indicate that automatic plug-in delay compensation is being used. Chains that cannot be used for live monitoring are automatically bypassed and are displayed in red ().
