Arrangement Grid needs to be more visual

I recently switched from FL Studio due to the enhanced workflow in S1, which I love. However, one thing that really botheres me, is that the grid is really easy to get lost in.

Ableton and FL Studio do have an "easy" UI-solution for that, as they mark every 4 bars in a slightly different contrast. This in combination with thicker bars on the 1 would make it much more easy to stay in structure for everyone. 


Hope that makes sense. Also really like this feature request, S1 offers :) 

Kind regards

Hello, making the contrast of the grid, automation lanes, events, the playhead, the track headers and the selection much much more visible is a major issue.

What also could be better if the grid is not disappearing when zooming out so fast. In Pro Tools as example the fine grid is visible very long.

That would be nice. Adding contrast slightly increases the boldness but it's not much. Maybe a slider for this would be a good solution
