    Nuke the audio mix mode toggle!!!

    (Posted this in Dec 2017 but repeating because it's currently my #1 annoyance, after the crappy pan/zoom effect)

    Because the tool's mode appearances are almost identical I sometimes accidentally make a volume adjustment in automation mode instead of clip mode. Having to click and toggle through 3 modes feels pretty old school, especially since I have literally never ever used "live" mode. (Informal poll: has anyone ever used that mode?)

    Tabs might be better, and perhaps different colors or some other indication of what mode you’re in. And it's silly that the record button icon remains in the modes that can't record.

    Many moons ago the clip mix and automation mix tools were actually separate tools. I think that was actually better--keyboard mapping to get the tool you want--but I think we can come of with a hybrid that kicks it.

    The toggle simply boggles the mind!

    Hi Doug,

    As a workaround, I think we can map the Clip and Auto Mixer to keys or buttons now.

    I don't see a way to do that in 2018.12.0 ...?

    For the life of me, I have no clue where I read about it, and I cannot find any reference to it either. I must have dreamt it.

    I prefered the separate tools, but would even settle if I could map one key/button to Clip and one key/button to Auto, so that I can invoke exactly the mixer I'm trying to address.

    Nope, never, not even once. (Longstanding feature request to remove it dating from about 10 seconds after its introduction).
