    Hi. I wonder, if instead of having to right click a channel repeatedly to set volume / pan assignments, we could have a dialogue box with that information all contained therein?
    Thanks

    There’s a gain stage at every instrument and effect slot, as well as track.
    The Inspector can be made to show such controls in one panel. They also animate according to automation.

    Thanks Levendis. I’m aware of those features, but was referring to assigning pre/post gain-pan-metering when right clicking on a channel. After setting any one of these the dialog box closes & then has to be re-opened to set another of these for the same channel. It would be more efficient to have the dialog box stay open so these can be set at once.

    Do you mean these menu items?

    If so, then i’d recommend using the matrix on mixer tracks, to set fader & meter positions.
    The left column indicates and allows setting of fader position, right column for the meter position.

    Thanks Levendis. That does solve some situations. Sometimes when using Podium I notice little things that could be consolidated to make the workflow a bit tighter. I post these on here as observations that might be adressed in future releases.
    Cheers 🙂

    i’m a little unsure of which dialog box you’re referring to. When you say “channels” do you mean track?

    Those options of fader and metering positions are within a context menu, which conventionally close upon selection of an item. No doubt inherited by OS treatment of menus. The only case where i’ve seen an alternate behaviour is in FL Studio, where a right-click on menu items selects the entry and maintains the menu’s open state.

    Perhaps new options in the Track Properties dialog would be convenient. Those options being metering and fader positioning. That said, Podium allows metering and a fader on every slot, from instrument, through effects, and the track itself. So, inclusion in Track Properties may be misconstrued as having those functions confined to one set per track.

    Perhaps, then, the matrix displayed on the mixer could be replicated on tracks.
