I would say definitely. Hate the amount of wave editors I have recently tried that don’t have -6dB at half level and although Renoise is the fact I had to change volume on a normalised sample to check that is just silly.
Currently, if DSP chain hasn’t got keyboard focus, the currently selected DSP shows as slightly darker and it is easy to miss. Then again, as keyboard isn’t focused there, what difference does it make? If focus is on DSP chain then it gets highlighted with an orange lines around it (default skin) and is clearly evident. Why do you need to know which DSP you last clicked on if you haven’t got focus on that panel anyway? Maybe would be nice if focus changed in Mixer view with a change of parameter though. Currently, if you click on dead space on a DSP it selects in it the Mixer, but if you click on a slider or arrors to change value the slected DSP does not change in the Mixer.
it’s significant to always check real audio level in dB for me
i think it will be a nice (exclusive ) renoise feature
so now the currently selected DSP shows as slightly darker. The keyword is “slightly”. And, if there more than 3 dsps its easy to miss selected dsp. I suggest to add individual color in color theme that show active dsp background.
i mean wide/narrow with width of each mixer strip(like cubase mixer view). The ajustable height will be very nice feature too (like ableton live). No, not too loud, but have a lot of tracks
There is no problem, when i have focused on dsp chain, but from time to time i move any slider and then looking thru the pattern (with focused on pattern). After return my sight back to dsp chain (to fix some params) its hard to find dsp i needed.
some additional (useful for small laptop screens) :
9) make popup-menu with Ctrl+RightMouseButton (for example) on area of opened VST/VSTi window with checkbox “enable keyboard” and “random” instead window header (plugin name) and footer (check box and button).
anyway i think it’s easy to release all theese hints
