    Send the output of the track to another track, put the limiter on that, control the volume of the first.

    He wants plugins to go on items so they're only using CPU when the item is playing.

    Well that would work for some projects, but for instance.. sometimes we'll get a mix where we want to do volume envelopes before anything in the chain, not just limiting.
    Sometimes that'd be a section of a song and sometimes its intricate volume envelopes so that we can control how hard the mix hits the whole chain, not just final limiting.

    In wavelab, sequoia, pyramix, etc, the take envelope curves happen before take FX. Thats one of only 3 things holding us back from moving to reaper for processing.

    I'm not sure that I understand why Reaper's pre-fx track envelope won't work. You've mentioned 'item' and 'take'. To my way of thinking these are both bits of WAVs that sit on a track.

    He wants the plugin on the item so it's not using CPU when the item isn't playing, and he wants volume automation before the plugin, which doesn't seem to be allowed on an item in Reaper.

    Ok, then maybe oP can still use a pre-FX volume envelope, and couple it with an FX bypass envelope.
