This omni-meter would, like the control room meters in a studio, usually show the output of the Top-most (usually master) track. When objects are soloed, it will show the soloed track(s) values. The other advantage is that the meter, itself, is not height dependent like the meters in the mixer and the real estate across the horizontal plane allows for a much more detailed metering.
ps- K-system? Did that get anywhere while I was gone?
Great idea! Samplitude has something similar as well.
This could be implemented as a new region that you could insert in the arrangement editor profile.
But there are a lot of more important things on my todo list.
I haven’t made anything using K-system, but it is not forgotten. Again a priority issue.
When this feature makes it into Podium it will be a really useful addition to the current features. Just like the Large Transport which I use in my default set up in Podium now. The larger meter is a superb way to keep track of db levels but in more detail. I’m really looking forward to seeing this in Podium as it was one of my favourite features in Samplitude.
