The panels in MCP might give a fatter look, but that's because of a big sacrifice, the lenght of the meters. They actually take a double blow, being smaller (shorter) both in TCP and MCP.


If intention is to keep information in each area as clear as possible, no extra text belongs into the meter area (no track names in actual meter bar, TCP). Yes, the track name sits there nicely, but it doesn't help the visibility of the meter itself, quite contrary.

Also, bunched up numbers in possibly the most important meter of them all, the master meter, are no good. Given that there are ways to make different areas bigger will help in this regard, but to get the same visible resolution as in V3, MCP screen has to be extended way bigger than in V3.
