Default Track sticking: Can somebody make this real?

I usually have from 50 to 100 tracks in my projects and I found that usually there are a couple of tracks that I need to keep in sight all the time. So I thought about this thing

Is it possible to have something like this in reaper or would somebody make this?

Thanks!

I don't know if it is possible, but I sure like the idea. I could get a lot of use out of that.

This isn't at all what you asked for, but are you using the SWS extension for Reaper? The Track Manager is really useful for managing large projects, since you can choose what gets displayed in the TCP and MCP, display tracks based on keywords, etc.

It's a complex idea because tracks could be in folders, and their apparent routing would be confusing if they were to be moved up there. Whatever the solution is (I'd say a duplicate track, with an obvious 'reference' style that makes it evident that it is but an alias of something else) is, it requires some thought.

In the meantime, a quick half-baked solution would be to allow pinning of any 1st-tier track, which would not encroach on the issues I mentioned.

+1, very convenient,
to display lyrics, video tracks, or any other kind of reference track.

Hmm...

There's nothing that prevents doing this, I would see it being time consuming because it would need a lot of groundwork from devs in regards how the TCP is drawn and handled.

Idea could be that when you "sticky" a track, it's copied to the top of the TCP into this "stickied tracks" area.

It would be just a visual presentation of chosen tracks with full user operability just like any other track, but they're still in the real track list below. Some visual indicator as a horizontal line below the last stickied track would tell the user where the stickied tracks end and where the normal behavior of the TCP begins.

This is a good FR and the demonstration is well executed.
