Edit memory location - switch to next memory location keyboard shortcut

When editing track names and comments, you can switch to the next or previous track by using the keyboard shortcut [cmd+left/right arrow]. It would be very handy if this shortcut could also be used when editing memory locations. When the Edit Memory Location dialog is open, you could use [cmd+left/right arrow] to switch to the next or previous memory location, thus not having to close the dialog and double click on the ...more »

When I am editing vinyl clicks while zoomed into the wave form at the sample level it's time to select the pencil tool to draw out the click, and then "Chicklet" back out to overview the waveform to scrub to the next click and also switch to the selector tool to navigate to the next click and then zoom back in to the sample level again at which point again selecting the pencil tool.and then repeat on and on, click after ...more »

db scale in track display

There are notches there now but I'm not sure if they actually mean anything. It would be nice to have it show db so it would allow us to see at a glance where to set comp and limiter thresholds. This would be a nice touch.

Pencil Tool redraw bug

Yet another bug. Trying to draw out some nasty clicks and it just isn't working properly. In the video below you can clearly see that the waveform that is created is nowhere near where I'm drawing.

Batch Processing

Pro Tools needs to add Batch Processing and Batch Commands. How many times have you done tedious tasks of moving things to playlists, or organizing tracks, or applying AudioSuite plugins on multiple clips, or bouncing out different stems, or something.

 

I think being able to add batch commands would greatly help improve workflow in Pro Tools. It's in Audition and it's awesome.

Smell-O-Audio

I think we need a system that is similar to Smell-O-Vision but with audio so that we can smell what the sound smells like , different guitar pedal keyboard smell , and also the singers breath smell in the mic Smell-O-Vision was a system that released odor during the projection of a film so that the viewer could "smell" what was happening in the movie. The technique was created by Hans Laube and made its only appearance ...more »

Move Muted Clips to playlist Command

This would be a great feature for comping dialog tracks quickly in film post. Often as I am listened through scene I use the mute key command to mute the secondary mics within a sequence of shots. While I like to take these out of the primary track view for mixing, I do not want to delete them in case I need a tail or piece of tone later. The easiest action would be to just select over a section of clips and when you ...more »

DSP vs Native Plug in coloring

Make it so DSP instantiations are colored differently from native instances of plugins. Right now the only way to definitively tell is to open the plugin. Too tedious if trying to maximize DSP usage in a large session. Of course this has implications for BYPASS coloring also. With coloring it adds speed and value to the HDX / DSP platform. Glancing at the mixer and seeing whats DSP vs Native in a second would be a real ...more »

Playback Speed

Podcast creators/producers need to be able to listen back to spoken word audio at high speed! My greatest disappointment with choosing ProTools has been that it's not possible to just click some sort of a FF button, as you can on every other system I've used, to play back your audio at 1.5x or 2x faster speed. Especially now in a world where everybody and their cousin is creating a podcast, you really ought to have ...more »

Campaign: Pro Tools bugs

Collaboration tools do not work.

(This is a bug report which I prevoiusly posted in S3 bugs by mistake. Since posting this I've also tried relocating ProTools to the desktop and disabling my firewalls based on comments in other forums, to no effect) 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate, Intel core i7-6700K CPU 4.00 GHz, 16 GB RAM, running ProTools 12.5.2 In collaboration tools, both the "invite another user" and "artist chat" buttons create a blank popup window ...more »
