DUAL MONITOR SUPPORT (added some GRAPHIC DRAFTS)

Post by alvarog » Sat Oct 14, 2006 10:20 am

... Dettachable / Resizable / Re-organizable views (Browser, mixer, session, arrangement, track, clip, etc.) for custom setting in multiple monitor sources


EDIT: ADDED SOME GRAPHIC EXAMPLES:

Sample 1. Basic dual screen mode (on Full screen - F11)
+ Display 1: Arrangement + Clip views
+ Display 2: Session / Mixer + Track views
In this draft, browser appears on display 1.
Overview view appears only over Arrangement one, freeing space for session / mixer view.
When you click on a clip in arrangement, clip / track / session / mixer views refresh with track data on both displays, and viceversa with session / mixer views on display 2.

Image




Sample 2. Added a second browser instance on display 2 for explicit device / plugin navigation (its nearness to track view for drag & droppping devices worths it, besides a second browser view frees the first one from that task):

Image




Sample 3. Better display space managing. The tool bars are located on the main display (1); this way, the display 2 gest more space for showing the Arrangement and Clip views. I vote for this one.

Surely i am missing something; feel free to post your own suggestions / impressions. The most of us have a couple of screens in our home studio, because of that this feature would be a gods send.

YES. This was a must have for Live 5, 4, etc. At this point it's inexcusable.

aaahh, to fully use my second monitor again.....

I used to need it as much as the other...
now it's relegated to showing a few VSTs....

pity.... but hopefully one day the LIVE interface will become modular at least for expert users....

I agree that this would be a very useful option - it would be very cool to be able to see what's going down in the Arrangement view while working/recording in Session view!

HI

The thing is this; with proper dual monitor support they could sort out how people 'want' to use Live - the ability to set-up the gui to suit; detach midi edit to second monitor or perhaps spread the session and arrange views.

Goodness knows the gui needs to get better.
