Ok, here's a random brainfart that would take me quite a while to figure out to do myself. But after having played around with MixIO and the new Polac ASIO, I got this idea on how to simplify using multi IO machines. Instead of the current approach:

I want to make the shape of the machine change along with its number of inputs and outputs. This would have several advantages as far as I can see:

1) You can directly see how many inputs and outputs a multi IO machine has.
2) You can connect directly to the correct input without using the right-click menu at all.
3) I just think it would be more intuitive to see the inputs lined up in a row. Also, if two machines are connected to the same input, this would be really easy to recognize.

Actually this can be done already by using the tab key while connecting.

The only problem I have with the multi-io graphics is that when you have curved lines enabled, the channel indicators obscure each other. Would it be possible to have the input/output indicators displayed either on either side of the connection triangle, or perhaps midway between the triangle and the source/destination machine?
