Material node instancing

Hello Everybody, I have 3 leaf Materials and I would like to control color correct nodes inside of them remotely, I though of creating color correct instance and than drag and drop it inside materials. But It does not work as I though. Is such thing even possible?

Cheers,
Daniel

1. Color Correct "Shader"
2. import it into leaf shader, but cannot plug in color information in :(

It's not possible. Linking different shaders to the input requires different shader instances. A workaround could be to setup an xpresso network to control all three color correct shaders, which may not be so convenient.
