How do you easily distinguish which channel is the highlighted/selected one…? Could you expand/elaborate on your graphic a little please…? I’m not familiar with PTools etc…
Would the colouring idea you propose extend into the whole of the expanded mixer view (or not…?!)
Would the colouring extend into the track parts/events too by default (or would that be done separately…?)
Obviously, the example is ugly. But, the idea is exactly what we asked for when they “fixed” the mixer colors in 6. We have a bastardised version of it with the track handle colors. But, even there we can’t control the color.
i know my example is ugly. I do this in Windows with Paint in about 15 minutes but you can see was my idea is.
It also be absolutly ok if we can choose the colour of the fader caps and the mixer stay as it is .
What about Skins like in Repaer? There you can choose that it loks like protools or hundreds of other skins.
My point is that we have requested/begged/demanded/wheedled/spit/yelled for this feature for years. It isn’t a new idea. Many of us want colored track panels. At a minimum we want it back to the way it was for C5 where the panel color was the type of track. Even with the colored fader handles, the mixer view is difficult to “see”.
And it would be amazing if you’re working with large track amounts to be able to set the can hide feature for colored tracks then.
It woud then be “Can see - blue” for example (when blue is the drum group and you only wanna see that one.
It would make life so much easier. Can hide is nice but not too comfortable.
What do you think?
