I’ve been working with video apps like Sony Vegas a lot recently, and there’s that one feature I love:
for those who don’t know it - say you delete an event on a certain spot of the timeline / arrange page, all the events at the right from the deleted events jump to the left, filling the space of the deleted event as if it had never been there.
You can choose if this affects the track only or the whole timeline. It’s brilliant, as you never have to select and readjust everything when you delete a section of a tune.
They also have the horizontal zoom linked to the mousewheel by default, which I also come to find extremely practical.
Another one: I often miss select all right / left of cursor. That would come in real handy in case you have a large project and want to manually move a whole bunch of events inside a track ,to make room for another event for example, without having to zoom out completely in order to manually select all the events you need to displace.
Then one that’s really bugging me : I’d love to have "click to locate in empty space" also inside the editors! When doing fiddly work like cleaning up minute parts and breath noises on a vocal track for example, I constantly need to point the mouse into the tiny blue space above the editor window to locate the cursor. It would be so much less hassle and fiddly if I could just click right in the empty space without having to aim so precisely every time.
I guess that’s about it…for now
