I'm building a concert of all my "go to" patches...a bunch are B3 kinda things and a bunch are everything else (pianos, synths, splits, etc). What I want to do is have the B3 drawbars visible and working for the B3 patches, but not visible on the other patches that don't use a B3.

Again, the idea is that this would be all in the same concert.

Is this even possible? Some trickery?

    if you leave a control unassigned in your patch, it will show as a blank silhouette. That may be all you need to do.

    Yes, I'd actually like this for any control --- if a particular patch doesn't use certain controls, then I'd like them to be not visible rather than marked as would remove a lot of clutter.

    They are only marked as unassigned in edit mode, if you switch to perform or full screen mode they become transparent and inactive. It is recommended that when you want to perform with MainStage, you use one of these two modes since it activates additional performance optimizations that make MainStage faster and more responsive.
