Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria! ... ☺

What caught my eye was the ability to add a compressor to all of the dialog clips at once in the final stage of editing the sound. That seems really slick, compared to how I did it in the past.

True. But there is something impractical about the way it's done. Which is you can only "hear" the effect of the compressor when you're outside of the compound clip. If you have to go in to the compound clip to make an adjustment you don't really know how the compressor is going to affect the sound of your adjustments until you go back outside the compound clip.

A better method would have been to allow effects on roles without having to create a compound clip.

While I do think it would be nice to choose what you're monitoring when inside a CC, once you get to the Mixing stage of the cut, it's not that big of a deal. FWIW, what I do is, after making the CC of the Project and showing Lanes, choose to view the components as Subroles in the inspector *and stay in that view*. If the subroles are detailed (separate characters/mics for DIA, MX A, B, C etc., regular and LFE Effects ) You can pretty much make any tweaks without backing into the comp. If I need to, I just go in, make the tweak, and use the timeline history KB shortcut to back out and hear it.

Again, being able to hear effects applied to a Comp and/or Roles while inside the CC would be welcome. Hopefully that will appear at some point now that the Role Effect function exists...

Would it be possible to use the project history buttons to deal with this?

That's what I do. Could it be easier? Sure, but it's not bad.

My hat is off to Apple - first, the entire demo has terrific production value - we all have incredible technology at our disposal, it's about time a company is finally using it. And, the demo artist is awesome, he's prepared, he knows what he's taking about, and he's quite well spoken. He leans a bit too heavily on the touch bar for me, but since Apple doesn't have much to brag about these days with regard to its hardware, it's clear he was probably instructed by the marketing dept. to make a big deal about that feature, and so it's forgivable.
