Misc

All in one download

Since we have an account on Avid pages that list all of our products. Wondering if there shouldn't be an all in one download that would obviously download all of your avid product in one go, instead of having to go through all the plugin list to get the plugins from avid you have bought, etc.

Sluggish graphics on some plugins in Pro Tools 11.3.1 HD

Hi: I upgraded to PT 11 about 4 months ago. Initially it was great. I love having the added horsepower! I'm on 11.3.1, and it was happening on the previous 2 versions as well. When I use any UAD, Metric Halo or A1Audio plugin the metering in that plugin becomes so slow that it becomes useless. Whether it's input, output, gain reduction, etc they all become very, very slow. I've checked with the manufacturers and ...more »

Pro Tools features

Add an Automation Event List

Adding an Automation Event List (similar to the MIDI Event List) would be a welcome feature to Pro Tools. To summarize: it would be the Automation counterpart to the MIDI Event List. Much like the MIDI counterpart, this event list would be a floating or docked window that would have a drop-down selector to choose the displayed track. It would list all automation breakpoints with three columns: location (time), parameter ...more »

Pro Tools Won't Respond To Alt or WIN Keys Sent From iPad Apps

I'm attempting to set up a Windows wi-fi macro controller using the Actions iPad app. Unfortunately Pro Tools won't recognize the Alt key coming from the iPad, and only recognizes the WIN key if I insert a wait state following the key press. With so many PT shortcuts containing Alt, this severely limits the macros I can implement. I've had similar problems using Pro Tools with other iPad apps (Custom Keypad) and with ...more »

Full page of soft keys

Can we have a screen view that shows just a full page of soft keys?

To take the idea further, it might be nice to be able to fully customise them -e.g. size, colour, position on screen etc.

OR, at least make the current 12 soft keys larger. They are quite small and hence hard to use quickly and accurately.

Comments window overhaul

Make the comments window into the track sheet - Metadata resource we all need for the future. Going digital meant our data would stay with the songs. Make the comments window have three views. One for small crucial always visible info. A second for a moderate amount and third for All info. Player, instrument, composer, ascap info, mic, polar pattern, preamp and setting, compressor and setting, picture. Engineer, studio, ...more »

Pro Tools bugs

Sync HD clocking bug when between sessions: sample rates go to a percentage of current rate.

When using a Sync HD (either color) or older Sync IO with pro tools 10 or 11 (all versions) when you close a session but keep pt on the Sync units default to a partial sample rate. For instance 88.2 goes to 71 and 44.1 goes to 39. As you can imagine, all interfaces clocked to that go nuts and sometimes emit clocking noise or try to resolve the weird incoming clock-rates. Pro tools already is temperamental about changing ...more »

Ability to Save and Share Eucon Softkey/TouchScreen/Number pad custom buttons and share them online with other users

Would be great if we all could upload and share as well as download and import custom touchscreen buttons, softkeys, transport button functions with other users. Many own Artist Control or Transport and want other custom button setups rather than the default button mappings that ship with the unit yet at the same time don't want to have to spend the time to customize it completely themself. I finally had time to custom ...more »

S3 features

Custom Colours for Soft Keys

It would be great to be able to choose the colours for LED's on the various buttons. (The S3 does already have multi coloured LED's. It just needs to be implemented in the software.) It would make it easier/quicker to find the button you are looking for and would also make it clearer when you have the shift layer selected because you could have a different set of colours. e.g. If my soft keys on the left are lit up in ...more »

S3 features

Swipe Ribbon Control to Scroll Through Tracks

The ribbon control on the S3 can detect exactly where your finger is on the ribbon. i.e. it is not just four separate buttons, it can also detect a swiping motion.

It would be great to be able to use a swipe motion on the ribbon controller to scroll through tracks in a project.
