For as long as Cabbage has been around it has been possible (although never recommended), to use the same channel names with multiple widgets. We all did it right It starts off with a little duplicate here, then another one, next you know 20 different widgets are connected to each other by a single channel and a team of Cabbage coloured unicorns start singing Palestrina motets in your ears.
Well I’m pulling the plug on it! No more unicorns, and no more duplicate channels!
Why? A channel name becomes a parameter name in the DAW. And many DAWs will simply refuse to create a second parameter if there is already one created with that name. To be honest, I’m surprised they worked this long without problems
I’ve added a check on compilation for duplicate channels. You can ignore the warning, but do so at your own risk
