OK, that is serious!
Although, I must say, I find myself re-balancing three things most of the time: - the channel fader, the aux send, and the pedal pots.
This finds the sonic sweet spot for a particular piece.
And this is done with two hands, two ears, and eyes often closed!
With your set-up, two of those three tweaks would be have to be done with a mouse.
Which means your brain's optical cortex is engaged (among other things), in order to tell your mouse hand what to do.
Too much brain energy being used for non creative purposes!
