[Charlie Austin] "And with the magical tilde-shift-release chord, you can turn off connections without the need to hold the key down, and edit away just like the olden days. ;-) Until you press tilde again to "re-connect"."

I'm absolutely not saying that there aren't lots of exciting ways to edit with connected clips. I love connected clips as much the next guy.

What I'm saying is that you can't establish a connection between a cluster of connected clips other than how they relate to a singular clip on the primary.

Often one creates a really nice cluster of audio that doesn't necessarily tie to a single point in the timeline - this is especially true if you are sound designing something around a music track.

Yes, you could put the music track or some other defining element in the primary and have it lock to that, but that's not necessarily as flexible as you might like.

I'm not talking hypotheticals - this is stuff that I find that it would be nice to be able to do when I'm editing since so much of what I do is driven by sound design. Perhaps rather more than is typical, which is why it probably sounds as though I'm talking nonsense.

Of course, I can make it work in any number of different ways and none of it really makes a huge difference. But it is a form of limitation.

Rather than an unalloyed magnificence.

No NLE is perfect, even this one. All of life is a compromise of some sort - it would be so dull if it weren't.
