Centre align the audio track rubber band for 0.00db [Premiere Pro 2020 bug]
Revert the visual design of the rubber band in the audio track, so that 0.00db sits vertically in the centre, as it used to be before 2020 update.
The attached screenshot shows the left clip at 0.00db and the right clip at -6.00db, however, the design language would suggest the left clip to have amplified audio. I'm not sure if this is due to new features, or a bug.

This is not a bug and done very much on purpose. There were various reasons to make this change.
Audition has a similar range, and the non-linear nature of the scaled used (-100 to +15) required the change. The previous system made little sense that there was half of the range dedicated to 6 dB of volume change, and the other half of the range dedicated to 100 dB of volume change. This change, while not perfectly equal in both directions, helps mitigate some of these issues. Now, 1/3 of the range is dedicated to 0 db to +15 db of change, and the remaining 2/3 is dedicated to 0dB to -100 dB.
This also increases the usable range when you get to extreme ends of the range also. Example: It is much easier to reach a specific negative value like - 50. It was nearly impossible to do this before.
This change also more closely matches the faders "throw" in the two mixer panels. There is now a closer visual correlation.
We understand that this is confusing at first, and there will be an adjustment time, but this is a better moving forward, and was necessary to make the adjustment from +6 dB maximum to the current +15.
