Reference tracks for PT Elastic Audio

How about having the possibility to set reference tracks for Elastic Audio, when quantizing tracks in group?

For example, quantizing the drums group on the base of kick and snare markers only?

All major DAWs include this feature by now...

 

Time to be serious about Pro Tools, AVID!

'Export TIMELINE SELECTION as New Session'

This could be as easy as a checkbox on the existing 'Save copy In' and 'Export tracks as New Session' dialog. It would allow to save a copy of all the elements in the session ONLY inside of the selected range of time. This would save a lot of time on shared editing workflows, where for example an episode is done by various sound editors or mixers working on different scenes, and a full session has to be assembled afterwards. ...more »

Pro Tools Elastic Audio Bug

I would like to submit a Pro Tools Mac native bug with Elastic Audio: I get clicks and pops (with spikes on waveforms) very often after rendering tracks with Elastic Audio treatment on them. I noticed that on PT11 and PT12 (all versions). PT 12.5.1 included. This happens both after committing EA on tracks and rendering, or just after rendering tracks without committing EA first. VERY annoying, as it makes audio editor's ...more »

New keyboard shortcuts for groups

Hello, regarding track groups I've been waiting for keyboard shortcuts like the following for longtime:

- Select first (next/previous/last) group

- Select all tracks in the current group (as a KEYBOARD SHORTCUT)

- Modify group

- Delete group

 

It would be nice to have them added to the PT keyboard shortcut collection.

Thanks...

Pro Tools 12.5.1 No Reaction At Session Opening Dialogue Recent Files

After PT 12.5.1 is loaded and the session opening dialogue appears there is no reaction when I double-click on the entries. I have to close the short cut dialogue windows and go back to 'File' and then opening 'Recent Files' to be able to open a recent session.

Do others experience the same on this item?

Yesterday I finished 5 hours of editing Drums, saving often, and just as I finished, the session corrupted, I was like "OK no problemo, I have Backups, so i went to the Backup folder and opened, the one with the higest number; 57, It did have the drum recorded but not edited! i opened other several backups but none had my edits, so I called an ambulance and after leaving the hospital, I resignated to do all my edits agan, ...more »

Simultaneously edit main and alternate playlists at once

There should be an option to simultaneously edit the main playlists AND alternate playlists together without having to open the tracks playtlist view and select all the lanes one by one. i.e: you decide to remove 8 bars from a song using the All group and shuffle mode. But many tracks do have alternate playlists if you mistakenly edit without selecting all and every alt playlist in every track, things can get complicated. ...more »

Update Cloud Collaboration to allow different versions of the same project

The biggest hurdle in using cloud collaboration is the inability to version projects. This greatly hinders our ability to work backwards when needed.

 

For what it's worth, I have not had one session in the last 15 years that I did not need to work backwards.

add search box to the command section of the soft keys tab in EuControl

EDIT: sorry, apparently this has just been posted by someone else: http://protools.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Search-and-Filter-for-Commands-in-EuControl/241035-3779

Please report this idea as a duplicate, since I cannot do that myself.

 

would be a great timesaver, especially since not all protools commands are available in this section.

Save Multiple Configurations in EuControl and Switch Between Them

EuControl just sees one configuration. When you open a program like Pro Tools or Nuendo, EuControl just sees this software and any adjustment you do to the configuration gets saved under the application's name. Nuendo is then Nuendo.xml or something. But what if I have 2 different types of work and I'd like to adjust my layout for Nuendo? Or there are 2 users using Nuendo on this machine and each of them would like to ...more »

Multi-Selection of SoftKeys For Editing And Re-arranging In EuControl

Sometimes you just want to delete a whole bund of SoftKeys, or move them somewhere else. It would be great if one could select more than one SoftKey and then drag and drop it somewhere or at least delete them all in one go and not having to select each one of them one by one and clicking "Clear".

Drag&Drop + Copy&Paste of SoftKeys For Quick Rearrangement in EuControl

It takes a lot of time setting up SoftKeys. Especially because one can only edit them one at a time. When I want to adjust the layout of SoftKeys to fit my workflow better, I need to delete a SoftKey and in that place, set up a completely new key from scratch. But the key I'm looking for is there, just on another page. I cannot copy and paste it, which would save me a lot of time. I need to create it from scratch. Also, ...more »

Search and Filter for Commands in EuControl

It takes a lot of time setting up SoftKeys. It would be nice if this time-consuming process could be made simpler and faster. For example, EuCon is very powerful and covers probably hundreds of features. Instead of having to know where a function is in the menu hierarchy, a find as you type would be great! This way, you don't have to search through all the menus, just type a word and the list filters by this word and ...more »

Mix Scenes / Automation Scenes

Pro Tools would benefit from having recallable mix "scenes" (or Automation parameter scenes) available within a single session. Users should be able to generate and store an arbitrary number of recallable scenes. When a scene is recalled, the faders, pans, send, plug-in settings/bypass, etc all change to their saved vales. This feature can allow for a number of significant workflow improvements. It would allow: -Alternate ...more »
