Command 8 meter LED's
 
I got a used command 8 for cheap last year, and I'm slowly getting to know it. Looking more and more like it's going to be a very nice way for me to start to enjoy PT again. I have some challenges with movement and vision, so getting away from the mouse/screen is a big help. (Also helps me mix with my ears, and not my eyes.)

One thing I find lacking, though, is the LED meters on it seem to have a very high "trigger level". The meters in the PT mixer window has to reach yellow and red for the LEDs on C8 to light any more than the first green LED.

I would love to have them be more "sensitive" so I can have better visual feedback on the C8. The way it is now, I have to push faders to have that visual feedback and then PT mixer window peak indicators go wild.

I've tried most meter options in preferences, and searched, but nothing. I was hoping for a way to manually set this.

Anyone?

OK, scratch that.
A simple check with a signal generator shows me that the LEDs are perfectly accurate.
It's just that the first green led is -42db, and the next is -12. Then -6, -3(yellow), 0(red).

I would have loved it if there was a way to make them light up more, though.

You have to choose the right metering view under preferences.
C8 prefers «*Pro tools Classic*» metering. Other view doesn’t fit well.

It doesnt make any difference.


The problem is, in a typical session, I have lots of tracks where the peak is between -42 and -12, so only the first green LED lights up on every track. That takes away the intuitive identification that you have on most mixers, that you immediately can see which track corresponds to which sound you hear.
