Hi Presonus,

As I said before, I am coming from FL Studio 12 as a DAW user and I find the graphics representation of the events (clips) a little harsh on the eye. It seems it's like it does not have any antialiasing applied. When I am zooming out, the MIDI information in the clip it's just a small thin line instead being more thick for better reading. The waveform graphics looks harsh and the text title of the event (clip) is pixelated like it does not have "Clear Type feature from Windows, enabled". 

In FL Studio 12 or Logic Pro X , the graphics in the aranger looks pleasent to the eye, with smooth graphics.  

Studio One 3 look good but I think it has some old graphics left from version 2. frown

My request is if anyone wants a better graphics representation of events, text, waveform when are small or big. smiley

I have attached 2 examples from FL 12 and Logic Pro X. I think it has more consistency in representing what's inside every event / clip.

Agree on the fonts but i fear anti-aliasing on waveforms would just make it look blurry (especially on Retina display) a much better way (imo) would be to simply increase resolution of the waveforms.

Bump. Also, I'd just like to add that MIDI clips really only need to have the preview actually zoom to the notes that the clip includes. Not much else is necessary.

I do find the single-pixel MIDI lines hard to look at; definitely.

New waveforms look good now but I still think the “thicker MIDI data lines in arrange view” aspect of this FR could use some attention
