Would love to be able to set default Send Levels other than -6db as it is set now. Say like to 0db or -infinity.

Agreed sends should start a "null" - absolute zero - negative infinity.

When I throw a bunch of sends across a board full of faders, I have to then zero out every send on every track. 24 tracks x 8 sends - 192 sends set at -6db by default that need to be zeroed.

It is a big time waster, in a professional environment I would be really upset and probably keep using that PT system, in my home studio I simply deal with it. B/C the S1 song creation flow is awesome. and no clients breathing down my neck.

It is not how consoles work in the real world of analog console. A board should be properly zeroed out by the intern before the engineer even sits down to start the mix.
Which means all sends are at zero.

Maybe I should just hire an intern for my home projects... hmmmm....
