Steps in volume faders

the volume faders in reaper can be as precise as 0.01db. very few people can hear this. also it's not very easy to set with the mouse the exactly value of the 3rd number, so it's not really useful.

this fr is for an option in preferences called "snap volume faders at"

options:
no snap
0.1db
0.5db
1.0db

this would make things easier to remember the values of all channels (i use to memorize them) and to set two or more faders to the same value.

thanks!


**EDIT**

this fr is about faders, but it would be also useful if applied to envelopes, item's volume, etc... everything that deals with dbs in reaper.

Reaper has only one scale. How about three ? I've posted this shot before. The one on the right is the idea.

0.1dB steps are a good grid to stick to, no matter what height the fader area or envelope track is. Same mouse motion, same jump in value slots. These crooked inbetweener values just complicate matters.

a fader RANGE of -50 to +16 that i use for live sound, AND then using a 1.0 fader ratio/log value, gives just about 1 db up or down with scroll wheel. try it. i have had that set up for years...
