Just when I thought a thread couldnt wander farther off topic, I am again proven wrong.

I must say, I find it interesting we apparently have a Chinese participant who is translating (reading) from english, but posting in Chinese.
Welcome Tone Hung!
(The name reminds me of something that happens regularly when I try to work in a Midi editor.)

Its even more amazing that I can so clearly translate from Chinese, and more often than not, still dont have the faintest idea what dadabujontomasteel is saying!
(And what kind of "handle" is dadabujontomasteel David? No. Nevermind. Dont tell me. I'm pretty sure I dont want to know.)
Stay in tune, Mark

I would like to be able to lengthen multiple tracks that are selected in one go. Also, can you give us some fade in and out curves please.

I've noticed that when I go to normalize a track sometimes it normalizes the last track I worked on or the adjacent track. I have to click on the track header up by the play/mute icons. it would be nice to just right click over by the main track icon (the speaker pic) and have the option pop up there.it would also make more sense to me to have it pop up w/ the volume % settings instead of under sound properties or even a normalize tab beside the play/mute buttons on the track itself.
for me,this saves on using multiple compressors for certain styles of bass tracks & also comes in handy for dynamic drum parts like rim shots.

Yeah, I know, I probably have like 20 suggestions now, but I just thought of something. You know how when a track has effects on it, the effects button shows up in green? Well, what if when a track has effects on it, but none are turned on, the effects button turns red or blue or some other color? Just a thought.

Control the rate of rendering to wave.

This just came to my attention. Mixcraft mixes down to wave much faster than real time. If you also include options for real time rendering and something slower than that it might be a help to many in the future.

This comes from the EWQL forums. Apparently on some of their flagship libraries (Hollywood Diamond Series) it is necessary to render at real time or slower to avoid artifacts because apparently even the most powerful computers with SSDs are having trouble keeping up with processing all the data especially if a person adds convolution reverb and other effects. Notes are clipped and artifacts are present otherwise. At this point I don't know whether or not I'll go that route but it might also be a help to folks with weaker systems having problems.

One that's just cropped up.

When editing (MIDI or audio) I often enlarge the track to see the waveform of the individual note in zoomed mode. Hitting 0 un-zooms but a shortcut for returning track height to normal would be a God send. How about T1 (track height small) T2 (track height normal) and T3 (track height large)?
