Is it possible to arrange the plugins of a filter chain in a kind of parallel view?

In Logic it is possible to view the plugins in an insert in a parallel view so i can control the plugins very intuitive and see the optical feedback of them all at once. With Presonus I can't find a possibility to do the same. When I open the insert i can only switch between the plugins of this plugin-chain.

Is there any way to do this?

Thanks a lot.

You can expand each plugin in the channel view and edit them there with all of them viewable at the same time:

This way works perfekt for normal "musical" editing. For a mixdown I normally only use only one to three finetuning effects like EQ, Compressor, Delay, Amp-Simulator, Reverb... The main parameters of this effects are also editable in the channel-view.

For more creative dynamic sound editing like for Dubstep or EDM a more creative approach to filter chains is useful (an fun).

I had opened more than one plugin while searching for a possibility to create a similar view to the shown in the past sometimes accidentally but couldn't really reproduce it.

Tody I tried for a while and found out how to manage it: When I use the "Pin" button and open another plugin from the insert-list with doubleclick or right mouse-button and "edit", it opens in a new window. So i can create a panel of the used plugins.

This is not optimal because I can't switch between views of different channels, or close all effects for one channel with one click, and reopen them, but I can deal with it.

Perhaps it is useful for anyone else. And if Presonus want's to do me a great favour they could add this feature in the future.
