context-appropriate right click menu - 11/01/13 11:06 AM

this was mentioned in the middle of a different request, so I'm re-posting here in its own thread

The TRACKS right click menu has gotten pretty long, to the extent that (on my PC at least) the options scroll out of sight.


It would be useful if the menu was context aware... if it is a midi track, it should ONLY have options used on a MIDI track... for example, to change the midi channel, midi patch, piano roll, and MIDI supertracks/styles pickbox would show when you want to add a new instrument etc

but NONE of the audio stuff (ie realtrack, real drum, audio effects etc) should be included in the right click menu of a MIDI track.

Likewise, an audio track should show only the items you'd use with an audio track, and none of the choices that are only applicable to a MIDI track.
