Set default channel when opening linked multi-mono plug-ins

The feature to set default linked channel in plug-in to, for example, center when opening the plug-in. A lot of times in post we use multi-mono plug-ins and the default channel for monitoring the plug-in window is the left-channel, when it's often the case that we would like to monitor the center channel.

Consolidate from source media still copies the entire file

When I import session data, "Consolidate from source media" still copies the entire file to the new session's audio files folder. From the manual (pg. 336 in the 12.4 reference guide): "Consolidate from Source Media Use this setting to copy the audio from the source project to the Pro Tools session, while removing all unused areas in the copies. For example, you might only be using ten seconds of a ten-minute audio file ...more »

Click II casuses random CPU spikes stopping playback/record

When the Click II plug-in is present in a session, random CPU spikes occur, even if it averages at 0-1%. This cause frequent and systematic interruptions during both recording and playback.

 

The problem disappears when removing it or making the click track inactive.

GPU issues with Pro Tools 12.4HD on OS X 10.9.5

After many years with Pro Tools HD, this is the first time it has been necessary to use a graphic tool application to make Pro Tools flow. When I use Apple Quartz Debug and deactivate "beam sync" then it works fine. Autotune 8.1 in audiosuite is nearly impossible,if not for the Quartz Debug utility. I think i am one of many customers with graphics issues in PT 12.x But the more we make complaints, the better chances ...more »

Interrupted Selection for Automation

Similar to noncontinuous edit selections and their editing (like applying clip gain to multiple object-selected noncontinuous clips), their could be the possibilitiy to perform automation on multiple noncontinuous selections. Object-selected noncontinuous clips will generate a noncontinuous timeline selection and performed actions like automation will only be written to the selected clips and not to non-selected clips. ...more »

Force relink option

I currently have a session that won't relink many missing files even if I go directly to the folder that it's in and check that folder. I tried match by name only, unchecked format and duration, and it still won't see the file. I've run into this problem before on older versions of Pro Tools. I'm currently on 12.5. In these situations, I think it would be useful if you could select the file and have an option to "force ...more »

Pro Tools 12 HD offline bounce bug

Offline bouncing a stereo file in Pro Tools HD 12.4 and 12.5 (not tested with earlier versions) results reproducibly the size of bounced left channel to be same than the source channel of the bounce, but right bounced channel is a bit larger (reported by Finder). Same happens with 5.1 files - the size of bounced left channel is the same than the original, all the other five are a bit larger. Pro Tools sees the bounced ...more »

Video follow cursor when moving a clip

I would like to have an option to toggle the video playback between "start of clip" and "cursor position" when moving/copying a clip. This would be useful for postproduction guys trying to place a specific transient inside a clip without having to trim the clip, move and then recover the handle.

Edit View Separator Track / Space

I would love to be able to see more visual separation of sections of my mix in the edit view window. I often find myself putting in extra tracks to act as separators between elements in my mix. If I could insert a dedicated 'separator' track - that looked unique in some way - it would work well as a quick visual reference for navigating my way around the more complex mixes. Even just the ability to add empty space ...more »

Plugin groups would be just like mix and edit groups. there could be 2 different types of plugin groups. control groups that link parameters so that when you change a parameter, it changes globally on all plugins in that group that are the same plugin. the other would be bypass groups which you could link any plugin to the group and bypass all the plugins in the group globally. i have a lot of tracks that are doubled ...more »
