Max level read out values for all mixer channels

I'm used to seeing the level at which a sound peaks on its mixer channel - eg Kick hits at -4.8db (value seen on channel) or Kick is peaking over by +1.6 etc

I'm surprised that Studio One doesn't do this, there's the space to put a reading so it's clearly a design choice. First DAW mixer I've ever used that doesn't have this (Cubase, Ableton and even Maschine all do).

Please add this minor but useful change to a future update.

I cannot believe all these years and all these requests have gone ignored. No; simply adding the basic level meter to the chain is not the "alternative". It does not capture the post-fader value when at the top and looks ridiculous floating around various positions across channels in a project. Presonus, let's get a proper peak meter added to the top of each channel level meter.
