+ RS5k: improve default value for minimum
Just swapped Minimum velocity -50db to 120db, but dynamic range RS5k still -50 db.

Yes, note "Velocity 1" will have entered value "Minimum velocity", example -100db. But next note "Velocity 2" will have the half this value -50db.

Nothing improved.

Attached example

I would say it's logarithmic curve, isn't it?
Should it be exponential or linear then???

Default VU Meter colors don't match theme

While you guys are under the hood changing VU meter settings, do you mind considering the the option to adjust meter color for the render VU meters and the JSFX meter colors within the theme tweaker or walter?

Currently those meters are stuck on the default green instead of matching with the colors of the track VU meters set by the users theme.

This option would greatly help with people that have color blindness or other eye issues that are affected by color.

Thanks in advance for your help.

The curve is not ideal, I suppose. The velocity to volume scaling happens in amplitude, so 1=-100dB = 0.00001, and 127=+0dB = 1.0, so at vel=2 the volume scale is (2-1)/(127-1)= 0.0079. 0.0079 * 1.0 + (1-0.0079)*0.00001 = 0.0079+0.000009921, and log10(0.0079+0.000009921)*20 is about -42dB...

We can add an option to change that curve, eventually, but it's not a bug (and not a new bug, at that!) and thus shouldn't be discussed in the RC thread. The bug that was previously addressed was that if the min velocity was set to 0, the previous default, the lowest gain value wasn't accessible since velocity=0 is a note-off...

Please, add an option to change this curve. But, what options are possible? I means, much better is so that the ratio of velocity to changeable level is close to 1: 1 or equal. I mean what the control should to be smooth.

Thanks (schwa?) for the above, especially the mono stuffs.

+ ReaSurroundPan: add 9.1.2 surround setup
Although 912 setups exist IRL, your particular 912 implementation by summing valid bed speakers in the DDM spec (712 + 2 extra side speakers) is probably an invalid approach as no Dolby Atmos GUI (that I know of) allows you to select such a (bed) layout, and doesn't really correspond to 912 setups IRL. The 2 extras exist due to the difference in position between 51 & 71 side speakers.

Please remove/change your 912 implementation.

If you wanted to implement additional 7xx/9xx layouts for Atmos, I have a few ideas. Should I post here, or in the FR "Reaper and Dolby ATMOS? " thread?

Default Shift-Clicking Master Plugins selects Tracks

Hi!

I don't know where this started, so I hope it's ok if I just post it here (must have started a couple of Versions ago, since this is the first RC I installed in a while).

When shift-clicking a Master-Track plugin or send to disable it (on MCP), all tracks in the TCP from last selected downwards get selected. I don't think this happened before - can anyone confirm?

Best,
Frank

That setup simply lists all 12 speakers that are defined in the Dolby ADM spec. If it does not correspond to any real world setup, we can remove it.

Such bug was there some time ago, but got fixed if remember well.

Anyway, I just tried it for you in v6.33+dev0729 (Windows10) and it works correctly (e.g. when track6 is selected, then you Shif+Click the slot of InsertFX in MasterTrack in MCP, it gets bypassed and only track6 remains selected).
It is with default configuration, no extensions and scripts.
Hope it helps.

EDIT: Check state of this option in settings:
REAPER Preferences > Editing Behavior > Mouse > "Mouse click on volume/pan faders and track buttons changes track selection"

Please remove this particular "summed DDM" 912 layout, as it doesn't correspond to any (sensible) IRL layout. Thanks.

Embedded markers/cues not showing up in Premiere over here.
I've tried with all 6.35 release candidates as well as 6.34+dev0812. Makes me think there's something else going on here. Cues import fine into Premiere when files are exported from Audition.
