Gain staging in the DAW is really important and I find it helpful to be able to see the Peak and RMS Bars. Currently we have an RMS bar on the master fader which is helpful, but adding a peak fader bar to that meter also would be helpful. It would also be nice to have more scale numbers on the meters for the DBFS values. Currently it  goes from 36 to 24 to 12 DBFS on the meters, increments of 6 would be better or options for even finer detail would be great. Also it would be nice if the meter bars were a little thicker and easier to view. Maybe a choice between solid colors and colored bars which Studio One does now.

One of the features that I enjoyed on Cubase was being able to have the meter bars be different colors at different levels on the DBFS scale. Once again really helpful when trying to mix and control levels and gain staging.

Just some ideas that I think would make a great DAW even better!
