Default Reaper's waveform display of recorded audio

It's often mentioned that people prefer to track at -12 or -16 or whatever.

But when I do this the waveform on the display is tiny - sometimes a straight line with small blobs

I vaguely remember a discussion about this a while back, but I can't recall if there's a way to increase the detail shown so that it looks like a normalised wav does (but without actually normalising it).

Any help appreciated.


Oh, and if there is a way to increase this waveform "thickness" in the display, is there a setting which will keep it that way (rather than altering it after recording).

Yes, this: "Shift+Up/Down arrow keys" to change the size.

Plus, if you want "thicker" (filled in) waveforms,
go into REAPER: Options --> Preferences --> Peaks/Waveforms.

There are a few appearance options in there to choose from.
Check out: "sample level waveform view".
Also see: "Fill waveforms to zero line".
