Why not play the chord right, from the beginning? ;)

I have a minor one: fix text selection when you select numeric volume text in the properties section of the built-in traction volume filter, so that it doesn't accidentally (but almost always) select the wrong part of the text (or usually, all of the text). I've never analysed why this happens, I just know it does because MY EARS OUCHYOUCHY...

As long as we're dreaming...

Just loaded up Tracktion for the first time in ages. It's just so lovely and clean with the whole flow right in front of you: really nothing else I use compares.

General stability and reliable pop-free recording are the only things I would need to jump on a new version, along with the comfort of knowing it's being actively developed/maintained to stay current with modern hardware.

And 64 bit support would be super, super cool. ;)

One small but critical workflow-related enhancement:

In a nutshell, the cup holder on my desktop PC keeps sliding back into the machine during playback and editing, causing spilled drinks and no end of ruckus. It can really disrupt the flow when the ideas (and tasty drinks) are flowing and it can be embarrassing to say the least when it happens in front of paying clients. "That would never happen with Protools" they always say and I can't really blame them. Not to be a nattering Nancy, but we all know Tracktion has always been weak in this area.

An option to lock that in place would be a god send.

When open, unplug the internal cable from the device and upgrade it to "manual". A small knob on the front will be a great improvement also. (Try to match the color of the computer front cover if possible)

Your workaround is a great deal more elegant, but I have found that simply wedging in a screwdriver is good enough for now.

Can we apply filters to folder tracks? I seem to recall not being able to do so, and that would be nice if no one's already mentioned it.

It's not really possible as folder tracks aren't audio tracks, just containers. The folder track vol control for example is not at all what it appears, it's a VCA, and simply provides scaling to the vol/pans inside the folder.

But... you can direct the output of the folder track to an empty track and then….. (it's Tracktion!)

Phillips or flathead? ;-)

My request: "70s Rec Room" theme should automatically re-decorate my studio to match when selected, with adjustable shag-carpet height and odor.

Seriously, I'm kinda expecting if a T4 is imminent that it's not just an incremental update, but the same sort of fresh take on the current DAW that the original Tracktion was back in the day.

My wish list:

- A volume control on each folder instead of a VCA.

- For when one runs out of CPU capacity, the ability to easily freeze and unfreeze tracks (i.e. render them to audio files) at any point in the filter chain (or at least so you can still use a volume control on the track)

- A Touch version of Tracktion for Windows 8

I'm sure it's been said earlier, but there's got to be a simple right-click 'glue' function for audio. Whether it actually bounces audio behind the scenes or just changes the clip rendering on the front end is for others to decide!

A weird idea I just had that might not make much sense but, on the other hand might be interesting, is something along the lines of a 'clip based undo' in addition to the 'global' undo. It's probably flakey to implement and not that useful, but I'd swear there have been times when I wished I could undo changes to one section (or clip) without having to undo changes made after, elsewhere.

This would probably lead to time-warp conundrums like shaking hands with yourself on your 4th birthday and that sort of thing, but I thought I'd mention it.

I'd also like to see some updates in the area of Themeing. I know some folks are really good at this, but I've tried making some minor tweaks to an existing theme in the past and been utterly lost. It's very difficult to figure out how things are mapped and what will be affected by a given change.

The other is look and feel. This is dangerous territory because we all love this aspect of Tracktion, but there are times with larger projects that...something...isn't quite right and the whole thing gets a little hard on the eyes. I don't know what the solution is or even how to clearly state the problem, but it focuses mainly on the appearance of the clips in the track lanes themselves. So far, in my book, Cubase and Logic do it best. You can load huge projects in those apps and clearly see where everything is, and the color schemes for the most part enhance the effect nicely. Maybe some time studying their approach could lead to a minor change with big impact for the look and feel of Tracktion.
