2k and 4k monitor has wasted space

Recommended Posts

Would be great if we could adjust the wasted space up the top by pulling it up where the white lines are.

So for instance I could make the faders longer.

FYI - i have 2 x 2k monitors. 4k would be even worse

Everyone has their 'way'.  I rarely do any individual window in full-screen since replacing 3x 28-inch HD screens with one 55-inch 4k screen.  Here's a picture of my common layout in 4k:

Thanks for the feedback MediaGary and looks good.

I always use track view on 1 monitor and console view on the other as i usually am doing full band recordings 30ish + tracks

It would be great to be able to adjust  so the meters were bigger.

@MediaGary, are you using a 100% display scale factor?

Yes, that's 100%.  It's only reasonable/possible to do that when the physical display is large enough. 

I know I'm repeating myself, but I can't remember where/which forum:  The pixels-per-inch (PPI) that my eyes can manage is around 81 PPI at my working distance of about 43 inches from the screen.   That's the same PPI that my 28-inch HD-only screens had. 

I liked the 3-screen HD arrangement with track view in the center, VST's on the left and console/busses on the right. However, there was never enough horizontal space to manage the number of busses I typically use unless I went to the narrow view, which is inconvenient.  The price of 4k screens held me back until I got a Craigslist deal on the LG OLED 55-inch screen.  

On an unrelated note, check out how I changed the registry to show the title bar color of inactive windows as deep burgundy while the active window bars are medium green. It helps enormously when there are so many windows.
