I'd say that the standard case here is to *keep* all the MIDI controller
settings, not reset them. Just imagine that you're running a reverb
which forgets all settings when you briefly deactivate it in order to
listen to the dry signal. That would essentially render such a plugin
totally useless. Or am I missing something here?
