Requests: Grid lines and waveform colors

Recommended Posts

I've been learning to love the way Cakewalk looks, but still there are some things that I would love to see implemented:

* The option to change the default coloring scheme from black background/colored waveform to colored background/black waveform.

* Waveform outline color available to change in preferences/colors, or waveform outline changed automatically to black if the coloring scheme is changed as in the first request.

* An additional option in View/Display/ Vertical grid lines: Behind waveform but in front of media background, so we can see the grid lines but not as strong and intrusive as when they are in front of the waveform or the midi notes.  Right now there are basically two options for the grid lines in Track view: Too visible, or not visible at all. I want the grid lines just to be visible enough.

Thanks for reading.

In the third request, a little bit of transparency in the media background would also work, so when the grid lines are behind clips, we'd still have a hint of where they are.

Mandatory Bump.

With the grid lines in front of clips, it looks like everything is chopped into small pieces. I really don't like how it looks.

And if you put the grid lines behind clips, you can't see those lines because media backgrounds have no transparency and the tracks and the media backgrounds have the exact same height.

In Reaper, Cubase and others, media backgrounds have a little bit of transparency, and also the tracks are a bit taller than the media backgrounds, so you always see a bit of the grid lines, and that's just enough.

Oh, and the color scheme, please. I can't think of any other DAW with black media backgrounds and colored waveforms. Please give us the option to have by default colored media backgrounds and black (or white) waverforms.

Thanks.

YES!  So we're not constantly re-coloring clips after bouncing and such.

***Per Project***

I. Track View > Options > Color Options:

   [ ] Set current colors as default

   [ ] Reset default colors

-OR-

II. Clip Inspector:

   Use Track Colors [ ] 

   Set Current Colors as Default [ ]

    -or-

   Maintain Theme Colors [ ]

-OR-

Return track backgrounds to Preferences so they can be saved in a Color Set.clr file.
