Automation on top of first lane? Screen Real Estate

I will again and again keep asking for this. It keeps me reaching for Studio One over Cubase again and again. Why won’t you listen?

The first lane of automation should be available on top of the audio file lane. If I am mixing volume on 10 tracks in Cubase I have to have 20 lanes open. One for the audio file and one for the automation below it. In studio One, if I am mixing 10 tracks I don’t have to scroll to do volume because the automation is on top of the first lane. 10 lanes not 20, less scrolling.

Please, please, please listen to this. We would all benefit.

  • 1 Here for this. This is one of the things that drives me to prefer Pro Tools for mixing, mastering and recording.

Oh, yes please!
Or even better, via a dropdown let you chose which automation you’d like as an overlay.

+1… if optional to turn it on/off.

Very good idea + 1


+1 if they manage to integrate it nicely with the already existing volume automation you can draw on the waveform in the arrange window…
Might get a bit messy if they aren’t coloured differently…
