Pro Tools features

Maintain track position during vertical resize

when you increase track size in the edit window, the focused tracks scroll off screen. It would be preferrable for the tracks to stay centered during zooming.

Temporary Pan group

It would be great to have an option to temporarily group tracks together to pan them without having to create a permanent group. This could be a combination of modifier keys with selected tracks or just a on option to turn on or off a Panning group of selected tracks.

Plugin search option within Audiosuite and Plugin window and one more

Hey, as a long time User of ProTools I would like to suggest two new features in future versions: 1. A search dialogue or search box within the Audiosuite or Plugin window to search for my favorite plugins....as I have so many I don't need to scroll through all the folders and mouse wheel scrolling within the long lists never worked properly.

No SD2 Support in ProTools 12

ProTools 12 will not read the old SD2 files. Avid originally created the SD2 standard, and now it appears it is abandoning support for it. We have thousands of old ProTools sessions that we can no longer access without an old machine running an older version of ProTools. I see that other people have the same problem and Avid would be wise to listen. I request that Avid add SD2 support once again in new ProTools versions, ...more »

CLIP MARKERS - markers that follows playlist clip waveforms plus short-cut keys

This would make marking places on "takes" in playlist clip possible without cluttering the main marker lane with markers that may not apply to the current playlist(s)... along with short-cut keys that can automatically name clip markers with different names on different keys on the fly when recording.

"Knife-edge" pan automation doesn't playback correctly on tick-based tracks

1. create a new session

2. create a tick-based mono audio track

3. drop some mono audio on it

4. flip the track's view to 'pan'

5. with Smart tool, highlight/select the middle of the audio file (clip) and pull-it either up or down to create "knife-edge" automation curve

Pro Tools bugs

Notification of overwriting clips by mistake.

We seriously need a notification if you're going to be dropping an audio clip onto another .

sometimes when dragging long pieces of audio,you can accidentally overwrite a clip further down the timeline that you can't see.

Just a notification stating that there audio where you're dragging onto.....

Send to track

i do a lot of prep for game shows and dialogue cleaning .so theres lots shifting of audio from one track to another.

i would like to be able to select a clip,or a whole lot of cops,right click and have the option of selecting which track to send the audio to..,instead of control dragging

will save heaps of time,and will stop me from sometimes dropping on the wrong tracks and wiping audio...

Summed virtual waveform in VCA track
