Drum notation

Stage: Active

Campaign: Pro Tools features

The Sibelius editor inside Protools needs to include classic drum notation. Yes, drummers are also part of the band. Most pro drummers use drum notation to write their ideas. And it should work seamlessly with the midi editor, obviously. Sibelius software has drum notation, you can export midi, or rewire etc but that is a damn painful workflow. Now Logic had this feature even before Apple bought it. As a drummer myself, ...more »

S3 banks to the last member of a edit group

Stage: Active

Campaign: S3 bugs

This might make sense for Mix Groups but certainly not for Edit Groups.

Reproduce:

Make Edit Group of two tracks.

Select first track of your group (or edit with "Track selection follows Edit selction")

In a session with many tracks you end up with the last member of the group being on Fader 1.

New Eleven Rack Features

Stage: Active

Campaign: Eleven Rack features

There are a few features asked for the community users. We are glad to have the Eleven Rack Stand Alone Editor now but there are many others features required for (us) the community.

I acquired 11R in 2009 (6 years ago) and the only real improvement has been the Standalone Editor. Please do not forgot us.

Clicking on video window in Pro Tools 11 toggles keyboard focus off and video window is always on top

Stage: Active

Campaign: Pro Tools bugs

In Pro Tools 11 (all versions) you cannot work with a floating window (ie: plugin) on the video window. Soon as you click on the plugin the video pops on top and plugin GUI cannot be used. Video window is always on top.This limits the amount of usable workspace even on a two monitor system. Also when you click on the video window it toggles keyboard focus (a/z) off. Previous versions of PT did not act this way please ...more »

Scalable Plugin WIndows and Memory Loactaions.

Stage: Active

Campaign: Pro Tools features

In the age of 4k monitors it would really help to be able to make a plugin window as large or small as the user wants. Plus all the extra grey bars around some plugins takes up needed screen real estate. The floating counter is re sizable why not the plugins. I have a 30 inch monitor and plugins can be too small to read the text on them. Also memory locations, why not make that scalable. If you are tracking across the ...more »

Fast Track Pro bug after last driver update

Stage: Active

Campaign: Pro Tools bugs

I recently updated the Fast Track Pro drivers to v6.1.10 which also updated the firmware of my audio interface to v1.02. Since then I got occasional dropping out of the audio. When I stop playback (in Foobar using the 64 bit ASIO driver) and press start again the play back starts again. Also sometimes when nothing is played I suddenly hear a low level noise through my speakers which disappears when I start to play something. ...more »

20026 error

Stage: In Review

Campaign: Pro Tools bugs

I'm seeing this same error as well when trying to save sessions with Pro Tools 11.

Same error here when opening izotope RX 3 Denoiser as an AudioSuite Plug-In. What does that error code mean?

Digigrid/soundgrid DLI and Pro Tools channel I/O limits

Stage: Active

Campaign: Pro Tools features

HD users will not get HD featureset when using a waves/digigrid DLI or DLS interface despite using an Avid HD interface and owning a Protools HD license. The digigrid interface can be used in two ways, one is connected to an avid HD native or HDX card as an additional interface, in which case you get your normal HD features and channel i/o count, but not the soundgrid featureset. The other way to connect these units ...more »
