OK, this has been mentioned before, I am sure, but I have an idea…
When you have LOADS of tracks (My songs have easily over 40 tracks every time), the Track Scopes resize themselves smaller.
This make it very hard to see if there is any activity in the track, when you are trying to pinpoint a sound etc. (Blah Blah L33t I am the best tracker eva, dont need this STOP)
So how about…
Have an option to switch between the normal view and a pulse view. The pulse view would not give waveform info like the standard view. Rather, it would just be a pulse of white to indicate activity on a track. This would be SO helpful when scanning through a song to find sounds you made ages ago (this is especially important when you re-open an .xrns after a few months away from it, and can’t remember anything about the track)
as some effects on tracks can produce audio due to certain feedback loops even after there is “something going on”, perhaps an option like “automute all empty tracks in pattern” would help? (like in the context menu or something)
(note that this is pattern specific, ie doesn’t apply to the whole song)
An option to delete unused tracks would rule too. There is an option to delete unreferenced instruments and an option to delete unused patterns, so why is there no option to delete unused tracks in a song.
