Waveform reading improvements
 
Alrite, this is the last one from me today:

1. Why is the horizontal zoom level of the sequencer limited. Now the largest view is 10 minutes long sequencer. Thats way too small for long projects.

2. The waveform magnification tool should be stepless, and not have only 3 options it currently has. Pro tools has a stepless waveform magnification, but it doesn't have the ability to quickly toggle it back to full normal headroom. You should have the best of both worlds by making a waveform magnification leveler, that snaps to the default position.

3. There should be a way to import&copy only a section of the audio file. Now if you import a multi-hour file, it takes forever to load, even if you wan't only a small fraction of that file.

4. Ideally, there should be a way to read aiff & wav files from other locations than the .reason-file, so that you could import stuff without copying. Now if you have the same ambience-loop in 10 reason files, it takes up 11 times the hard drive space needed. The clips that were on other locations should be marked with a warning sing so that you know it's not included in the .reason-file. Something like this:

yeah, R8 i reckon, will be packed with sequencer/editing improvements. bloody hope it is anyway. the awesome power of R7 has shown up the awesome weakness on the sequencer in a big way IMO.

fars No.4 goes, it would complicate things once you started editing i think. however, project folders wouldn't go amiss. never mind all this self contained hoohah, just project folders or at least versions. then you can just go grab contained samples w/o opening songs, etc. simple.

Yell yeah, version support is a must! But it is doable with the current one-file concept. There should be something like "version snapshot" pane in the tool window. I'll write a separate suggestion for that.

I don't know about project folders. I think it wouldn't bring any benefits I was asking, if you couldn't read from other locations such as other project folders. If you could, then it would be a different story, but I don't think props wan't to let go of this one-file mentality.

well its down to how Reason handles files in the first place. reading from the file's location's fine but as i said, if you start editing the file it starts to get messy.

how about a zero crossing indicator
 
how did they miss the zero crossing line ..

its so important when trying to avoid clicks and pops
