I create 2 instrument tracks, one called BFD3-RTAS, and one called BFD3-AAX64, with the correct instrument plugins. Only the correct one will open.
I then set:
Settings Preferences->Set Plugin Default To->User Setting
Setting Preferences->Set Plugin Settings To->Session Folder
and save my plugins settings to a file for that session, which is used for both the RTAS and AAX64 plugins. I still have to remember to save my BFD3 plugin settings at the end of each session. However, that's only one keystroke.
The only reason this is a hangup is that lately I'm using BFD as my sequencer in Song mode. I'd hate to lose my drum performance somehow. Otherwise, I can just create a MIDI track with the drum sequencing. PT still doesn't allow you to send a MIDI track to two instruments, which is (still) stupid. However, that's easy to toggle back and forth as needed.
There are some limitations with this. If I want to do any processing, I'd have to create an Aux track and send both RTAS and AAX outputs to that. Similarly, if I want to process an individual BFD channel, I'd have to create 3 Auxes - one for RTAS, a second for AAX, and a third that combines them that contains my processing. However, this can easily be done with templates, which I do already, and the intermediate level busses can be hidden.
Hey, it's better than nothing.
