I'm also a Logic Pro X user and I find the inspector section of it more user friendly than S1.

I would like to see the inspector of S1 to be more user friendly like Logic, by removing the event section on the top of the mixer section. 

Right now we have to drag up and down to get to the right options, it's not user-friendly at all especially on my MackBook Pro with a 13" monitor. (as you can see in the video below)

Like this:

Here is a video comparison of Logic and Studio One on a MacBook Pro with a 13" display (no retina):

That would be very useful indeed ! Maybe make if dockable sided by side for wide screen's
(where you have more horizontal space than vertical, imagine 32:9, 21:9, tripplehead...) would help either

I always thought the inspector was very cluttered and disorganized. So YES!

100% agreed.  Not only should they be collapseable, but all of the optional views/windows should be dockable/floatable/snappable.

Personally, I'd be much happier with a nice fully configurable big peak/RMS/LUFS meter over the fader section in the inspector, with the track options split into smaller, more relevant sections.  I also find tabs in web browsers really effective at window management, and wonder why no DAWs have incorporated simple little labeled/colored "tabs" that you can stick on the edge of a UI element to slide open a docked window with expanded options.  

No more scrolling through tiny text for options that should be front and center always.

Yes! I had no idea about half of the options that are there, because they were either hidden by other section or 'below' the screen.  Like suggested, make the sections collapsible or at least add a scroll bar and display everything in full height.

I agreed. Having this feature will be nice, not depending on 4k monitor.  Ableton does this perfectly even on smaller laptops, you will be able to see all your DAW interface.
