I have the latest update for S1A5 and I cannot figure out how to enlarge the level meters on individual or multiple channels. I've got better than 20/20 in both eyes but, the level meters on the tracks and even the main are way too small to see what's really going on.

Adding and then removing a metering plugin to each individual channel as needed is slow, tedious, time consuming, and frustrating.

I think it was Joe Gilder who said words to the effect of "If you're thinking there must be an easier way, there probably is an easier way already." Or something like that. Well, there has to be a fast and efficient method for making the channels bigger in the mix window, and I just haven't figured it out yet.

Thanks in advance

To get the meters on individual tracks larger use the arrows on the left above 'Inputs' to make the tracks skinnier. Then drag the top of the mixing window to the top of the screen, since the meters will be above the faders they should be larger.

I haven't tried it but you should be able to make a Custom Macro to insert the metering plugin, so you only would run the macro and have that effect put on every track. I'm guessing you'd use the 'Insert Event FX' function in the new custom macro screen. You click on the Macro icon (usb drive meets a banana) between 'Q' and 'Action' and then click the gear icon that appears under. Then 'Macro Organizer' and 'New'. Good luck.
