alternate row/column background shading, good way to see what line you on.
LET ME ADD A WAY MORE COMPLEX AND NEEDED FEATURE:
plugin 'virtual channel' routing matrix.... give me a few weeks, to mock up this. LOL it'd have to be 3D or something. ACTUALLY have a button on the channel mixer that toggles visibility of CONNECTOR LINES to show i/o from start of channel strip all the way to final hardware outs.
IE, routing matrix i can see tracks patch to other tracks or hardware outs, and HUGE KUDOS FOR ADDING DRAG IO BUTTON OVER TO ANOTHER TRACK TO CONNECT ROUTING! (and alt click to enable/disable master/parent send). but theres no way of summarizing the 64 channel internal channel routing (plugin routing)
heres an example: i have 2 reaeq, one routed so it takes channel-internal channel 1-2 in and goes to 3-4 out. now i add a send slider and have it 'listen' to 3-4 in and send to 1-2 of receive track. the other reaeq and all other plugs go straight through with 'virtual channel' 1-2 to track fader.
THIS is for MONITOR SENDS live or in the studio, this is how you do it. better than cubaseo because the sliders dont TAKE UP THE WHOLE FRIGGIN' DESKTOP!
in master section its reeediculous: i use 18 virtual channels:
1-2 thru an eq, then 1-2 to a voxengo delay which send out to 15-16 which is picked up at a hardware out after master fader, to go to delay stacks at audience rear, then plugin 3 is 1-2 into frequency allocator, a crossover plugin, and out to 7-8, 9-10, 11-12 (lo, mid and hi), then 3 reacomps, first listens to 7-8 and out to 7-8, second to 9-10 out to 9-10, third to 11-12. these are limiters on the lo/mid/hi, they go out to hardware outs x 6, each pair listening to 7-8, 9-10 ant 11-12 in turn, going to the acutal speaker bins. then i have 17-18 patched out of the first eq plugin as well as 1-2, so i can solo the mains out only thru a separate headphone out, so i have a hardware out listening to 17-18 as well, at the master fader out.
i SKIP 3-4 (and 5-6) because they are used in the rest of the mixer as monitor sends, and i forget how but theres a way i could get these coming into master section causing DISASTER.
boy i and i have gotten into trouble mispatching something during a live show!
