I'd like to be able to make the mixer view full screen on a second monitor; the same way that you can when viewing an individual clip. I don't use Session and Arrangement together much, but I *do* use the mixer and arrangement window in conjunction a lot, and when I do, at least 40% of my second screen space is totally wasted with an empty clip grid.

I believe that mixer's GUI needs to be reworked. You gotta have actual faders, those little triangles cannot be taken seriously. It also makes sense to have channel/meters width zoom in/out functionality. As it is now, personally, can't even be bothered to do any mixing within Live, even with Push 2. It's nothing but a visual torture trying to do a complete mix in that environment. I'm sure people who use Live exclusively, probably got used to it and are fine with it. However, I'm just as sure that someone who has experience mixing in DAWs such as Pro Tools, Cubase, Studio One, Reaper...would be hard-pressed to get comfortable mixing in Live. If such an update occurs, I'd immediately switch to working in Live exclusively. For now, I'll continue using a different DAW for mixing.

I would love to see larger fader handles myself, those little triangles are definitely very small when you're in the zone trying jump track to track.
These are all great ideas and I really hope Ableton sees this. A full screen mixer would be extremely nice. Or at least to be able to drag it to the top and hide the clip views while still being able to see the plug-in strips.
