Default Clip Effects - Compression Metering??

I just started playing with 12.6 today and maybe I'm missing something.

Is there any metering to show gain reduction on the Clip Effects Compressor?

If not, it's rather useless...

Was wondering that myself - hopefully they'll add it.

Same issue here. Not very helpful.

I'll save my rant on this in hopes that there is a reason that I'm not seeing it that I don't know of yet.

Believe me, Avid well aware of this glaring omission. Expect to see it added in a future update.

I'm very disappointed that applying EQ/compression (and even "input trim") doesn't affect the look of the waveform. I mean, if you roll off all the bottom end, you'd expect the waveform to shrink a fair amount, no? The look of the waveform gets affected in real time by the clip gain that's applied, so why shouldn't it by the processing?

I was really looking forward to being able to apply different compression on various mismatched sections of vocals and vo without splitting it out to different tracks.

With no compresssion metering, it would still be way faster to move clips to other tracks with other compressors.

One of my most anticipated 12.6 features down in flames.

Although I'm not happy with this "miss" I was able to quickly correct a low mid bump in a measure of a guitar solo with ease today. Will become very handy.

Of course some type of ambience to apply would be nice as well. Looks like there is room across the top of the effects display to add MORE.

OMG! - Sorry. How in the world does Avid miss something so utterly obvious. Perhaps it's because gamers are coding the audio software? Sigh.
