YES YES YES just more scroll weel support in general for that matter. I want to see it move the menue up an down as well. These things would be great.

And hey even macs have scroll weels now so why not.

yes, feels like the mousewheel support is inconsistant or non-existant in some areas, its kind of clumsy sometimes

but just using the mousewheel to zoom in arrange could complicate mousewheel scroll vertical on the grid

it would probably work better with a keyboard modifier (alt or ctrl or something)

which should be easily set with our new USER CUSTOM KEYMAPPINGS that are on thier way (Hint #4,283) ;)

mouse scroll = zoom
control + mouse scroll = vertical scroll

simple enough just like acid and all the rest of the daw that everyone is used to using...

Yes - that would be lovely - and some way to scroll quickly around the arrange window would be nice as well (that's non frustrating).

I'm currently putting together a whole track with multiple parts and the whole arrange window is really getting to me.

Live has started to get too reliant upon knowing exactly which key combination to press when.

So yes to scroll wheel and should idealy zoom centered on your view or if near start from start. For any descent size song (like 5 minutes) the overview navigator at the top becomes unusuable as the visible box gets too fiddly. The time line you grab at the bottom is just too slow to move.

How about a scrub function like the latest version of sonic foundary?

YES PLEASE!

Also, when a control or knob has focus, scroll wheel adjusts it. My creamware stuff does this, and it's brilliant...very precise.
