This request is not a make it or break it request. For the most part, when I am mixing, I find myself having to put the mixing console in expended view and having to switch back and forth between the mix view and edit view. The reason I have to work that way is that when I have the mixer in the attached mode, the faders are so short making subtle moves impossible to control. One workaround for that is to stretch out the fader, but by doing so, we lose real estate in the inserts and sends area. I personally like to see the audio input level at the top of the console, and I want to see as much of my inserts and sends as possible; if I had to lose one of those, I'll live without the audio input level at the top, but one easy fix to this fader length is as follow. move those four buttons (Mute, Solo, Record enable, Monitor, enable) to the side of the fader, there is more than enough room there for it. Use the top area to expend the faders. I am almost 1000% sure I am not the only one that feels this way. Being able to see the timeline and have the mixer open at the same time is one of the features that make StudioOne a better DAW than Pro Tools, But if I'm being honest, I still use Pro Tools because it's easier to control my subtle fader movement without a controller there because of the fader lengths. Please consider this request. and if anybody else feels this way, vote for this request.
