Have you thought about combining stripped down versions of Pro-C, Pro-Q, Pro-DS, and Pro-L into a single channel strip.
The idea seems quite popular over on KVR:
From an older topic:
A channel strip plug-in is definitely on our wish list! :-)

Ok, let's get to work then! :-)
I bought iZotope Alloy 2 a while ago and have been using it a lot for mixing, it's really convenient to have such a flexible all-in-one plugin with such low CPU load, especially for its quality. Having said that, every time I use it I dream of FabFilter's take on a channel strip, so, based on my experience with Alloy 2 and various FF plugins, this would be my wish list for Pro-CS:
VU meters for gain staging.
^ Of course, and gain controls, I forgot those... I'm still on the fence about Alloy 2's system. It's definitely as flexible as it can be, but also a bit overkill, with global input and output gain and individual input and output per module, like this:
Global in -> Module 1 in -> Module 1 out -> Module 2 in -> Module 2 out -> ... -> Module N out -> Global out
So it's two gain controls, one module, two gain controls, another module... And then in the dynamics modules you have yet another gain control in there! Maybe just global in and out and one out per module would be enough... What do you guys think?
