I would like to have the possibility to chose a colour for any track. The whole track. Not only the setup in the left area.

Logic has it and and I would love to have Mixcraft have it as well. It makes it sometimes a bit hard to always check "what violin or what percussion am I using now" and have to look at the left setup or read the text above the track. Would be nice to have colour-setup-oportunities.



What do you think, fokes?

I put a request for that in the Mixcraft 7 Suggestions? thread. Maybe add your voice there and it will become reality :)

Hi!

This can be done by right clicking in the left pane, then Properties>Color.

Is this what you mean?

Hi,

Well, those colours doesn`t really help very much. The should be stronger and fill the whole track so that it really pops out from each other, like in Logic.

What do you think?

By the way, is it possible for me to move this thread to the mixcraft sugestion thread?

Ambivalent. I think its fine as is and perhaps a matter of familiarity. But then a stronger color effect wouldn't be a big deal to me either way.

Anders, it has been suggested, perhaps more than once. But you could just copy your first post or re-write it and add your vote to the MC7 suggestions thread.

I couldn't find my post concerning that in the Mixcraft 7 thread, but I remember now it was concerning highlighting the active track, especially useful to me when trying to find a particular clip when I have several multi-timbral tracks next to each other with several lanes each and bifocals.

Here's how mine look in mixer view - where it counts :D

I use submix tracks - and let's say in 'Brass' I balance trombone, sax and trumpet in the normal view, but then eliminate their display in mixer view - only showing the submix track on its own. It then makes mixing so much easier (well for me anyway) :wink:

EDIT: Should have mentioned the pic is of my template - hence no activity.
