See dB levels between plug ins on the device rack

Post by Supersport » Tue Oct 23, 2018 4:21 pm

I find the tiny little level meters between plugins to be a pretty useful feature in finding out where my sound design may be having issues. Even on my 27" monitors at my home studio, I find the size of them is sometimes too small to see if the meter is clipping or not, because it appears to show clipping with one pixel's height.

I would like to be able to interrogate these these meters a little deeper to see more detail on the output levels they're representing. Here are two ideas on how this could be implemented:
* When a user mouses over one of these meters show a popup that tells displays the peaks, RMS values,
* When a user clicks the meter, expand the area in the device rack to show a miniature version of meters shown in the session view.

Who knows, could even be both. :D

Yeah, that's a great idea.

+1

They should just make them extend from top to bottom and cover more of that wasted real-estate.
