I would like to see the following features

1: 2-off Semi-parametric mids in the Channel Strip,

2: Place the Transport Controls in a dockable container, with an 'Always on top' option.

3: A oneclick function to split a MIDI clip over new tracks, one for each note used in an existing clip. This may sound esoteric, but here's why. When programming drum tracks, I, and I imagine many others, start with lots of short clips containing MIDI data for all drums on one track. I then copy these to a new track and merge them, in the new track, into one long clip. I then duplicate that over many tracks, then assign each track to kick, snare, hi-hat, toms, cymbals etc. I then delete all MIDI data apart from that for the particular kit sound(s) in question, so that I end up with individual tracks for each, which can be separately processed and mixed to a 'Drum Master' submix. This is time-consuming and breaks workflow. A macro to extract all kicks, snares, toms, hats and other kit sounds used to new clips on new tracks would be really cool, IMHO. If the new tracks could be automatically routed to a new submix that would be even better...

Thanks for listening!

I'm late to this party and several I had are already covered. Not sure if these are:

1. Assign multiple tracks to an individual 'send' all at once.
2. Ability to split a single track at every measure/beat. Ex., select track, right click, split->every measure
3. Ability to add effects to individual split clips in a track.

Undocking the transport was on my list too :-)

Peace,

I'm retracting number 3 -- asked and answered.

New number 3:

Hide tracks in mixer view (or resize width of tracks).

Sorry, it was number 2 that's been resolved, not number 3. :lol:

Thanks Greg. Useful indeed. Now, is there a way to hide that list in the mixer view? It would allow for more space so you don't see anything but the tracks themselves. :D

Hi,

You can do that in the piano roll, but not in the mixer. Thanks for the suggestion!

In 9, will we finally be able to view both time AND beats simultaneously? I could never understand why this is was a toggled choice.
