I get around this "problem" by using my monitor in vertical mode.
My configuration is a 24" 16:10 display with a native resolution of 1920x1200 which in rotated mode is 1200x1920. If I move the Windows taskbar (this surely also works an a mac) onto the left or right side and/or auto hide it and if I disable the control section on the mixer page the whole SSL console fits on my screen - at least vertically:
On a 16:10 display 14 channels are fully visible at a time, on a 16:9 it should still be around 11 or 12.
Just a small tip for those who use a "normal" display and have the possibility to turn it... ;-)
