( 1 ) With all the various control devises out today I find that things can sometimes get reset or moved for whatever reason. You’re turning knobs on one thing and adjusting another. Before you know what you did, 30 seconds has gone by and you mucked up a part of your mix.
In the days of the desk we could see every fader. Today we have multiple devices in front of us, shared work stations, and custom key commands… This is trouble waiting, to me.
As an example; a certain keyboard controller has been driving me crazy. Every time I re-enter a project it takes control of my faders. I have since disabled it, but still…
Depending on how many tracks you have it could take you some time to figure exactly what you moved by accident. So I was thinking that a FADER LOCK button would be helpful. It could be global on the active (in view) mixer only, or on each channel.
Anyway these are my thoughts on what I think would come in handy
