+1 for me too.

Pro Tools is so much better at this - I'm not a PT user but this is so frustrating not having peak and VU in the same way Pro Tools does - it's a no-brainer.

The other thing I'd like Steinberg to add at the same time is a gain reduction meter next to the Peak/VU meter - again - the same as Pro Tools has. So much more useful (practically, not just visually) than the Cubase metering.

The meters in Cubase look like kids' toys unfortunately - which is strange because I find most other parts of Cubase amazing.

And while I'm on about the topic of the mixer - I don't know if anyone else feels similarly - but I find it a little more difficult than I'd expect to "visually view / align" the inserts and sends down a channel and match to a fader and track name - i.e. visually view the channel from top to bottom. I love the dark look of Cubase but I don't think it would be too hard to add some more visual GUI cues to make it easier to view the entire channel stack. It used to be really easy in the Cubase SX3 era. Maybe there's an option I haven't seen in C9.5.

The only thing I know of to help with vertical viewing difficulties is to click once anywhere in the vertical channel. That makes it turn a shade of gray that is a *miniscule* bit different, making the vertical channel stand out from its neighbors a *minute* amount.

I'd love to read here about a better way!

For some engineers, peak meters are of little to no use on channels. When using a console, they tend to look at calibrated VUs and would like to do the same in Cubase. These users would like the ability in Cubase to switch any audio meter between peak reading and VU, or to display multiple meters in thinner lines...
...

Cubase users shouldn't have to buy third-party meters just to get per-channel averaging analysis. It's a fairly basic, fundamental requirement - almost as important as having faders in the mixer.

Revisiting this again - as it has still been bugging me, especially how this should be standard for mixing. I know we mix with our ears - but all the great consoles also have loudness meters, and often peak reduction meters too.

The reason I’m visiting this again - saw the maintenance update recently released, and remembered that Steinberg usually releases their next gen updates annually around November / December (the steps to either point updates or next version - expecting 10 next this year).

To be honest - although I have no idea what will be in the new release, this is one of the few things right now that will make me update. I’m really hoping this will be included, along with some more flexibility in the inserts routing capability for each channel. It is 2018 after all.

Please Steinberg - I will always be a Cubase fan - but I’d really love some improvements in the Mixer department.
