So provided you used the trick I mentioned you can assign mod wheel to cut off in a flash, especially when you design your own presets from scratch.
I said you cannot directly modulate a parameter via Modwheel. This is a fact.
And I also mention the 'trick' which is obvious and I have known of for years. And I explained why it is problematic. Lots of people do not design all their own presets from scratch. Lots of people use presets and/or modify existing ones. Existing presets already have various parameters assigned to the macros, so there is not an empty macro that one can just use 'in a flash'. I also explained a number of specific situations where it is problematic and causes unnecessary work simply because NI couldn't be bothered to put in the basic modulation sources that most synths have.
If you are happy using it, fine. Lots of people are.
