Playback Speed

Podcast creators/producers need to be able to listen back to spoken word audio at high speed! My greatest disappointment with choosing ProTools has been that it's not possible to just click some sort of a FF button, as you can on every other system I've used, to play back your audio at 1.5x or 2x faster speed. Especially now in a world where everybody and their cousin is creating a podcast, you really ought to have ...more »

Collaboration tools do not work.

(This is a bug report which I prevoiusly posted in S3 bugs by mistake. Since posting this I've also tried relocating ProTools to the desktop and disabling my firewalls based on comments in other forums, to no effect) 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate, Intel core i7-6700K CPU 4.00 GHz, 16 GB RAM, running ProTools 12.5.2 In collaboration tools, both the "invite another user" and "artist chat" buttons create a blank popup window ...more »

Move/Copy Plug-in in-between' two contiguous Plug-ins

It would be great if you could move or copy a plug-in in-between two contiguous plug-ins.

At present, we only have the option to replace one of the plug-ins and it is time-consuming dragging plug-ins down first to create a empty insert slot.

When hovering in-between two plug-ins a highlighted line should inform the user the dragged plug-in will be inserted in-between these plug-ins.

Export Mono file bug

I am getting very tired of running into bugs every 5 minutes! This bug appears to be related to the other bug I posted about where track bounce bounces only stereo tracks. Exporting clips as files is doing the exact same thing. I went to export a mono bass part I had to render due to some other bug and it only gives me the option for interleaved or dual mono. This is getting ridiculous Avid! UPDATE: I verified this is ...more »

Window Scrolling Glitch

Pro Tools 12.7.1 has introduced a quite annoying bug. I am often zoomed in on a track while playing back and making adjustments to clips. I often stop the playhead and do some adjusting, re-locate the playhead and continue. Worked great in 12.7 but now when I stop the playhead the entire window jumps to a previous area. After moving to where I want it and hitting play again it jumps yet again to a previous area that is ...more »

Laggy fader redraw

I'm running Pro Tools 12.7.1 and just upgraded to Sierra and I'm finding the fader redraw is very laggy. I'm at 12% system usage on a track without any plugins on it just adjusting the volume with my mouse and the fader is jumping around like I'm on the verge of running out of resources. I'm running a late 2014 MBP 2.8GHz quadcore, 16GB ram and 512 SSD and Apollo silver face via Thunderbolt UPDATE: Two things seem to ...more »

Update ProTools for Windows design of Mixer and Edit Windows to regular Windows10 style

ProTools on a mac looks great, but the Windows design is way behind. The Edit and Mixer windows for example (and any other open screen): they still have Windows 7 design... ButI think the Windows users deserve a bit more than that...

 

Why not adapt the minimize/ close buttons to the same design as all windows programs use under W10.

HiDPI Mode for UHD 4K/5K Displays - Windows 10

Windows 10 display scaling makes Pro Tools fuzzy on HiDPI Screens and using native resolution on UHD Screens makes Pro Tools too small.

Pro Tools looks beautiful in macOS on HiDPI Retina Displays however, on Windows it looks awful.

An option for HiDPI Mode in Preferences would be greatly appreciated.

Mono track Track Bounce

I am scratching my head on this one. Whenever you do a track bounce it ONLY bounces stereo, even if the track is mono. If you switch to dual mono in the pop up dialogue menu then you get 2 mono ( L & R) ... even if its a mono track. This makes absolutely no sense. I feel this may be a bug or maybe it was just a missed implementation? I even tried selecting only mono tracks and it still bounces them as stereo. Soooo .... ...more »

Collaboration tools show blank window, no error message

64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate, Intel core i7-6700K CPU 4.00 GHz, 16 GB RAM, running ProTools 12.5.2 In collaboration tools, both the invite another user and artist chat buttons create a blank popup window that never populates (waited up to 20 minutes). No error message. I can close the window and carry on editing. None of the buttons in the track collaboration function appear to do anything at all, whether in the universal ...more »
