ctrl + left/right = select transient

ctrl + shift + left/right = select between transients

ctrl + space = play selection

Should be half blue and half the color you chose or something.
Anyone got better ideas?

i like it the way it is.
I agree with the fact that it should be easy to see if a track is frozen, but there are other means than changing color. Colors often have a meaning, and overriding them destroys information for the performer/producer.

+1 It's really non-helpful that the frozen blue takes over the track color, making it harder to navitage and locate tracks.

+1. They could add the diagonal lines that currently indicate echo/reverb tails, on top of the clips. Would be sufficient indication.

Placing tracks into group tracks and colouring those helps, but takes up quite a bit of space.

Also, I only use 5-6 different colours in my projects; would be nice to be able to hide the rest.

Also 2: Would be nice with automatic track numbering in track names, rather than having to remember to write the "#" symbol every time I rename tracks.
