When working on a project, you will frequently need to access track and clip parameters and mix controls.

Track InspectorThe Inspector pane appears to the left of the Track view, but can also be moved to the right side. There are three separate inspectors:
Note: Settings in the inspectors are non-destructive, and therefore do not destructively process data in any way. Feel free to experiment with different settings without worrying that changes are permanent.
Note: Due to technical limitations of the VST plug-in format, it is not possible to show more than one instance of a ProChannel module. As a result, the same ProChannel instance can not be displayed in the Inspector and Console view at the same time. If you open ProChannel in the Inspector, the same ProChannel will close in the Console view, and vice versa.Figure 169.
