SSL Mixer Channel Value Display for Volume, Pan and Width
 
I've noticed many DAWs have permanent value displays for volume and pan. Would you please consider adding permanent displays that show the value of these parameters in Reason's SSL Mixer Channels? I believe this would improve efficiency and user experience. Below is a quick and dirty illustration of what I mean.
Thank you.https://dl.dropbox.com/u/6509575/Rea...l%20Values.jpg

There were a lot of different opinions about this suggestion in the Reason 7 beta forum. What does everyone here think about this idea?

Additional Suggestions from other PUF members included:

Yeah. That would be really nice and maybe they could do it in a way one can type in values.

At the same time I'd rather have standard values, 3,6,12,16 etc as opposed to 568 or whatever equals 0dB.
While I'm at it I'd prefer the buss channel to be authentic "buss channel" rather than a normal channel with input availibilty.

Also while at it, please give me real automation values of the mixer, i.e. Volume in dB rather than a value from 0-1000. Automating the mixer in reason is really complex because one will need to figure out how 0-1000 translates to dB.

Agree! Volume value!

I don't feel a need to have the number permanently displayed. I'd like a doubleclick to enter value though.

+1

also, if were at it, we need to be able to change the channels metering from peak to rms like the master channel. i find mysself always soloing the channel i want then look at the master channels for the peak.

sad :(

Just an individual peak indicator for each channel would suffice. Single red led in the space above/below the fader maybe.

Also I think displaying the fader/pan values would clutter the area too much but double click to enter value would be great, that goes for all controls really.

great idea! especially on the fader volume. could live without pan display.

+1 on this for sure. Numeric displays are great if there's no other indication of control position. But in Reason, most control's positions are pretty obvious, and hovering already allows you to view that value.

The other +1s I'll make (again and again) are for logical values for all parameters (dB for SSL faders as the obvious example), and peak metering for channels (something I've requested since Record).

@ kmoodly: what's an 'authentic' bus channel, and how does the current implementation differ? :-)

I guess it comes down to personal preference so the ideal would be to allow the user to turn these visual value displays on and off (that would be revolutionary). As for your second comment, I couldn't agree more. BTW, I selfishly only quoted your second comment in my list of further suggestions...https://www.propellerheads.se/forum/...ons/icon10.gif

I would also prefer numerical displays. Actually all those suggestions sounded spot on I would say.
