- its good, responsive, logical, clear!
- an additional modifier (right click) to reset is unnecessary, since vast majority of plugs and hosts uses Alt+click anyway, instead, you could make rightclick+drag a "temporary unlink" drag, so you don't have to move to link/unlink every time you want to do a miniscule adjustment. (i think this one shouldn't be too hard to implement). It's an extreme time saver too, because you diminish amount of mouse movements and clicks you need to do.
- LINK/UNLINK behaviour: in my opinon, when you relink parameters, they should stay in their relative position. Having them jump back together seems rather counterintuitive. i.e.: i do m/s, adjust threshold separately, then i have to jump back and forth to adjust the both together in the same relationship i've just carefully set. Big no-no imo.
Also, i'm kind of torn on the "parallel channel" view.
PressWerk has this solved by having an "overlay" but only one set of controls, and you switch whether you're editing CH1 or CH2, which has it's own set of caveats... But I gue
Your idea of using a modifier key to temporarily unlink a control is pretty interesting. One thing that is on the (long) to-do list for future updates is a "relative" parameter linking option where parameters for each channel would move relative to their current setting instead of jumping to identical settings. I'll have to see how all of these ideas can work together.
One thing I do like about having Right-Click to reset to default is that it's very quick to do when you don't have to reach for the keyboard. Also, since it toggles between default and your last setting it's a quick way to "A/B" small changes.
