you can use the Level Meter plug in for mixing. Its good. But I need a tall adjustable meter for the song page...not the tiny one at the bottom..... where is a meter like that??? It would sit to the far right..

I agree, I would like to see that feature too.

That solution from Joe Guilder is a very smart idea  but it's just a workaround with a few problems of it' s own.

For starters you actually have to have the edge of the level meter sticking out of your screen. So whenever you need to adjust the metering settings you have to drag it back in and realign it afterwards.  

Then there is the fact that the level meter does not remember it's size and placement even if you create a preset after resizing it, it just defaults to the small horizontal size every time it's opened.

Yes I know you can do it once and save a template. But what about the 600 songs I've made before finding Joe's workaround ?!

I also switch screen resolutions often, to work with plugins with tiny GUI's. Every time I do that, the level meter disappears or needs place & size adjustment.

It would make life a lot easier to have a large vertical Master Level Meter as a permanent feature

I totally agree!!

I have been looking for this a long time and when seeing Joe Gilders videos I directly tried to find it :-)

Just a cm wide on the right border og the window would be great and utilising the screen optimal.
