Eleven Rack bugs

Eleven Rack Editor bug

Weird bug with the eleven rack editor. Basically, if I open the editor while the eleven rack hardware unit is turned off, it gets an error. Which is fine, that's not the problem. The problem is sometimes what happens is that the error window will open up multiple times as fast as my computer can (literally feels like a new error window is opening up a billion times a second) and canceling it won't do anything so I'd ...more »

Dual playhead

Probably almost impossible to implement. But, when dubbing a movie, It would be really helpful to be able for two people to work on the same session at once - in different places. The mixer can carry on mixing whilst the editor can make changes at a different point in the session (listening to a separate sub feed routed to headphones) A full set of "sub" tools would be required. Double processing power would be needed ...more »

Add a simple text window

A window that can except text that remains open as you wish. This would be super simple yet super helpful. Great for holding lyrics while writing and recording, mix notes from clients for revisions, production notes, etc.

When I'm at the studio with multiple monitors I can accomplish this but when it's just a laptop screen it's no good.

Waveform on Importing Menu

I think there should be a waveform representation of the sound we want to import. For instance, with you are searching for a sound in the middle of a thousand more, it's really boring not having the waveform of the sounds because there are those silence intervals between the beggining of the clip until the actual sound

Graphics Offset While Using Plugs With Long Sample Delays

I'd be nice if there was a toggle to set an offset to match the max delay compensation setting while using plug-ins with really long sample delays. I've recently stumbled onto some wrapped VSTs that makes the sound delayed a few seconds after it shows up onscreen. It would be nice if the video graphics of ProTools matched the audio out (even if the transport remains delayed in response.) Ultimately not ideal but certainly ...more »

Direct Monitoring path for S3

Currently (June 2015) when using the S3 as an AVB audio interface there is a high latency (8ms) at even the lowest available buffer size in PT12. If you could from within the S3 allow direct monitoring of inputs the audio interface would fulfil its potential. As it stands, with the latencies experienced now, tracking is not really an option. Vote for me!

Mono subpaths of stereo paths cannot be individually delay-compensated using the Native mixer (not a problem on HDX).

1. create a new session 2. add 2 mono audio tracks 3. add 2 mono aux tracks 4. import or create one mono audio file with rhythmic material 5. add the same audio file to both audio tracks in the same position 6. make sure you have (at least) one stereo bus with 2 mono subpaths left & right. I will refer to the stereo bus as "Bus LR", L mono subpath "Bus L", right "Bus R" 7. set audio track 1 output to "Bus L"; audio track ...more »

Edit selection is being moved to the beginning of the note when separating a MIDI note.

1. Create an Inst track in notes view with a single MIDI note.

2. Set Pro Tools to Slip mode.

3. Separate the MIDI note with Cmd+E or "B" in command focus mode.

The edit selection should stay in place after separating the note, but the edit selection moves to the beginning of the MIDI note.

When importing tracks from another session, the bus names do not always import

Import tracks from another session. Make sure the track input and/or output buss assignments have been named something other than the default. Expected Result: Tracks should be imported with all bus names intact Actual Result: Sometimes the buss names have reverted back to their default names (Bus 1-2, Bus 3-4, etc) Workaround: N/A. You have to rename the busses in the new session. Additional Regression Notes: This doesn't ...more »
