Show all velocities with highlighted notes in Drum editor

I love that the drum editor only shows the velocities for the notes you're currently working on, but if you highlight more than one pitch, it'd be nice to show the velocities for the relevant pitches.

Absolutely - I can't believe this doesn't already exist.  If, say you want to edit a tom-tom fill or a snare roll with different elements (center hit, rim shot, edge strike in the same roll), you really need to see the velocities of ALL the notes in the fill in order to edit the relative volumes of each drum and create a natural crescendo, ghost notes, etc.

In order to see more an one single drum note's velocity, I have to switch the view to keyboard mode and edit it there, which is harder of course because of the length of the notes overlapping each other, making the rapid series of drum hits obscure.

I've never seen a DAW that couldn't do this before.  Since you can already do this in keyboard editing mode, PLEASE... can we also do it in drum editing mode too?  

Thanks so much, guys!
