Hellö again.... I was busy inside another application and couldn't
check it out for you hands-on. But now I did and would like to modify
my answer above. As long as you are using Live's own plugin GUI you
can set them up as you want. But the universal draw-back with Live is
that you can only see so many plugin windows at once as fits into the
Detail View window/bar at the bottom. But there is a trick! Live now
supports assigning a MIDI event to many targets so you can simply
assign the same event you are using to set a parameter inside a plugin
also to the Track Bar Title slot. If doing so, this is what happens
when you press your button/pedal for whatever-you-wanna-control: At
the same time as the targeted parameter's value changes (according to
your programming) the track that hosts the plugin is being selected
and this means that all of this track's plugin's GUI windows will be
displayed at the bottom. In order to make room down there showing more
you may want to shrink all other plugins.

Third-party plugin's original GUI window's status are not saved with a
Live session.
