Wishlist for fader undo: _per-fader_ undo.  Say, right click on the control, then hit ‘Undo’ with a stack per-fader would be something I would love to have.

Global fader undo would be interesting and useful, too.  I do this some now using snapshots and backups, but it’s a bit convoluted there.

Undo on any control (especially plugin controls! :-)) would be gorgeous……

And I’m well aware that’s a pretty significant feature to implement……
