On the mix window, meters are displayed to the right of the fader (i.e. after it), yet the default meters in PT are PRE-fader. It would be a lot clearer and more intuitive if these were shown the other way around, with each meter placed just before its corresponding fader. To a pro, I'm sure this seems like a pointless difference, but I think it would help reduce confusion from newcomers in terms of how to manage levels ...more »
My understanding of compound time signatures is that they're distinct from others because they group notes into 3s (e.g. 12/8 differs mainly from 6/4 because it contains 4 groups of 3 notes, rather than 3 groups of 2; same with 6/8 vs 3/4, etc.).

I would like to set the color theme of the signal in the meter so it matches my Mixing Desk to:
(Bright Red for Clip)
Allow the user to set their own colors for meters please.
