I concur. But people got accustomed to gain staging with plugins with nonlinearities, I think this comment of yours should be put in boldface at the start of the manual.

BTW, I have one humble request unrelated to VCS-1: currently I put RS-W2395C on every channel and group by default, because it does frequency balancing in such an effortless and top-notch manner that it's silly. If you ever get down to that, consider extending midband to 50Hz-10KHz and adding another midband, would gladly pay whatever you ask for that.
