Keep ctrl key pressed and the tooltip value remains visible also when adjusting it.
The precise value is a wish of many.
For now, use the trick by entering the exact first node value in the slider value box of the dsp/vst, doubleclick the parameter in the automation to get the first node in there, then select that node by clicking straight above or below it in one of the ruler bars and then copy / paste it on any spot you like that value duplicated.
You know I absolutely love being able to record my dsp changes in the mixer view, because the global view of it all is… I don’t know… it is psychologically better or something. I can’t tell you why but I never recorded my dsp changes while playing. Now I do it all the time in the mixer view.
Hey, one thing I don’t like is that if I am not recording to the automation it records over things in the pattern effect commands column. I wish it would add a new column while recording so it wouldn’t kill the existing data.
