i think you should reword your question, it's a little confusing.
you see to be asking about midi controller assignments?
there a re a few ways to do this. the way you describe ( TOOLS > Last tweaked or Next to last tweaked) or you can click the Multilink to controllers button on the top toolbar ( the one that looks like a knob. this allows you to assign several controllers one after the other.
you can also go to the plugin editor window and select "Browse parameters' which will open a list of all assignment controls in the browser.
i don't know if that help, hope so...
also press F1 for the help - that will help a lot..

"last tweaked" is awesome since FL save it within the plugin so it's available when you open a new project right from the start. :tu:

PS. If we talking about hardware controller.. :)

you can save all your controller assignments by using the 'override generic link' command.
From the manual = "After a Global Link is made, your controller will automatically link to the target in FL Studio or plugin each time it is focused (click on the interface window to focus it). Global Links apply across all Projects, unless overridden by a 'Per-Project link'. The advantage of Global Links allow you to control many targets with one controller knob, slider or switch. "

infinitely more useful for me at least...

I see.

Thanks all. I understand perfectly how to assign midi etc... or using a controller.

The question is more related to flstudio native capabilities. As you know, for example a native VST can alter release directly from the PR. I mean, using a non native plugin doesnt respond to the release channel on the piano roll. So I wanted to see if there were an alternative.

For example, synth1, if you want to control release you have to link directly with last tweaked and use an envelope controller because the release channel doesnt work. thanks for the answers.

Cheers.

You don't need to use the envelope controller, you can just use automation clips.
