… right-click menu of Track View? Seems an oversight and would be so handy.

I think they expect the Browser drag / drop to be the way now..but yes it would be easy to add to the menu

All three track types are in the menu. "Insert Instrument" was added around Feb. 2016.

In track view it's called "Insert Instrument" but in Synth rack it's "Insert Synth". 
Insert Instrument opens "Add track" window while Insert Synth opens directly list of available synths.

Insert Instrument = Combined MIDI/Instrument track (which I never use).

Insert Synth = Choice of Instrument track or separate MIDI/Synth tracks, which I always use but have to use the File Menu to get it.

An instrument track is easily split to audio+MIDI and the Add Track dialog called by "Insert instrument" has options to select a synth (D in the image below), add separate audio and MIDI tracks in a folder (I, J and K in the image below) just like the Insert Soft Synth Options dialog called by the other methods for inserting synths.

The insert soft synth options dialog does have a few options not available on the Add Tracks dialog:

  • Toggles for "Enable Synth Output," "Recall Assignable Controls," opening the "Synth Properties Page" and "Synth Rack View"
  • A drop down for selecting the track to display automation

Thanks for the education. I guess this "request" can be removed as it is technically already implemented, technically.

In the past rather than delete feature requests, the user would simple add [Implemented] to the subject.

In this case, the OP was a question about the current implementation of CbB with an implied feature request.

Rather than delete the thread, it may help others if the subject was restored and the the thread either left here marked implemented or moved to the CbB Q&A section marked answered.

Sure. Tho it's not implemented quite the way I wanted, it is there.
