It would also be nice if the user could

- highlight multiple tracks/regions and set a start and end color to gradient colorized these.
- enable a setting where regions auto adopt the color of the track as soon as they get dragged from other tracks

It would also be nice to have a gray scale (gray to black) as a color choice.

Unless you customized your palette, LP9 did not have a grayscale?

70% of data to your brain comes from your eyes.. It quickly grasps on to visual patterns, and finds meaning and visual clues. .. It's foolish to let this untapped domain go unused.. In earlier versions of Logic, when one had more control over color, I developed my use of color to let me more quickly grasp what was going on in a song..

The one thing I hate more than anything about LPX compared to LP9 is the inability to customise the colour palette. This is an enhancement I would pay good money for.
Using Logic since Version 2 in 1996.

You could also build different themes for each templates and have a different color palettes for each and every templates template.

You can quickly change color and swap/create themes using the LPX Colorizer:

I have created the app, so if you have questions... feel free! ;)

Oviously, Apple don't want us to colorize the mixing console. But they should consider to make the color markers persistent at the bottom when we scroll the window!!! (At least!!!)... And/or add color markers at the top. Common Apple! We don't use your software for 2 mics projects!

100% behind this.
I find LPX colour palette so boring compared to L9.
Id also add in that it would be good to have black region text back too.
Apparently white text is a lot worse for the eyes and i personally find it hard to read.
