Awesome updates!

An option to center the floating fx window right after opening it, would be great. Something like "mpl_Move focused Track FX to screen center.lua" so that it would be out of the top/main toolbars and TCPs way.

Also making the stereo panel separated from the other meters panel would be great as well, if possible.

Anyway this script is insane already

Thanks HEDA!

Other numbers, which ones do you mean? For EBUR128 loudness there are plenty of resources to learn about it.
Thanks!
Pretty much everything regarding the meters, choice of measuring, peal lufs etc.

So, left is (if engaged)
- Peak lines
- rms meters
- rms histogram
right is:
- lufs meters
sl? ml? Peak-line?
Healthy values for mixing? Mastering?
Should I care about lufs peak indicator?
Top is:
- Stereo direction
- Phase: fully left is 100% mono?


I'm just mixing, so if it sounds good it is good,
but for checking my mix with limiter I guess something like 14db lufs is a rule of thumb?

thank you everyone for the nice comments.

@G-Sun
Yes you should care about the LUFS Maximum True Peak number. It should be less than -1. This is just for the master track. Yes, a -14.0 LUFS seems to be the standard loudness for general music now. If you do more classical music or soundtracks, you should use -23 LUFS.

the phase meter is red when phase correlation is negative from -1 to 0. This is not good because mono would sound much different than stereo. If phase is from 0 to 1, yellow or green, then it is better. Sometimes it doesn't matter if the correlation is negative for some moments. In the correlation histogram it won't be shown too much if it is only for a brief moment. So a good thing is if you see the histogram yellow or green. Decrease the width of the stereo a bit if you see it all red. A mono output should be green 100% all the time with no stereo phase issues since it is mono.

Default v1.4pre7 (2017-06-26)

update (please keep backup when updating in case this is not working and you want to roll back)

Quote:
* v1.4pre7 (2017-06-26)
+ Tracks Tags: Add tags to tracks, for example MIDI, VCA, AUDIO, VOCALS, GROUP 1, etc... whatever you want. You can add multiple tags to each track.
+ Tracks Tags module: Show or hide in TCP or MCP by tags. / Select Tracks by tags.
# fix: maintain panels scroll position(to latest fully visible) when selecting another track.
This update adds a new panel for adding TAGS to tracks. In REAPER all tracks are the same. This is an advantage but it would also be nice to categorize tracks for several purposes.

Now you can add a tag to each track, or multiple tags. First select the track or multiple tracks you want to categorize and click +Tag button to add the tag. You will see a list of tags in green which are the tags assigned to the selected track. To remove a tag, ALT +click on it.

Below you see a list of all tags used in the project. Click on this list tag name to select all tracks with this tag. Or CTRL click to add that tag to selected tracks without having to type the name of the tag. ALT click to remove this tag from all tracks. There are two buttons TCP and MCP. This toggles the visibility of the tracks with this tag on the TCP or MCP.

This is not 100% finished but I thought it is better that you can already test it already and please suggest your own ideas if you wish. More functionalities by tags can be added and some presets and custom actions to toggle presets of TCP and MCP visibility directly with a shortcut will be added.

Nice one Heda! Solo and Mute of tag groups would be a helpful addition.

Track tags: Hallelujah!!
This has been an FR from me for years in native Reaper

Frs/ideas:
- show only tracks tag (tcp/mcp): shift + left click ?
- I'm using mcp very little. Could there be an option to omit the tcp/mcp-distinction, so clicking the tag would show hide both in tcp and mcp? Would give much more room.
- Reorder tags
- Auto-color with default settings/presets (ok, shooting a little high.. )
- +tag/copy/paste could be simplified to take less space


Bug:
- I got doubled tags when doing some combination of single/multiple add tag

Way cool.
Just be aware I have no filters when freethinking FRs and possibilities
