Edit window territories - Color coded work spaces within session

Work would greatly benefit from the ability to determine the beginning and ending of areas (like group regions) but would cross some or all tracks and allow for the placement and editing of regions within. This would allow for the timeline based organization or cueing of work to be done, though not necessarily occupied with sound. These territories would be seamless upon the deletion within the timeline. The most important ...more »

Multiple Mono MP3 Export or Bounce at 48kHz results in 44.1kHz mp3 files

On multiple systems I have observed that when exporting or bouncing files, selecting 48kHz multiple mono on the bounce/export options page results in 44.1kHz files being encoded. I work in post production and regularly send MP3 'work in progress' updates to my clients/colleagues, and it seems a bit unnecessary that files would be down sampled at my end to 44.1kHz, and then upsampled at the receivers end back to 48kHz! ...more »

Strip silence with fade

For me is not so important but i think is a good feature. When i use strip silence for voice over or something similar i thing will be useful to set a fade threshold too fo end fade in and start fade out. Like an expander with hysteresis but using editing.

Audio Suite time line with automation

It would be great to have an enhanced audio suite view having an editable timeline window/lane. Time length would be determined by selected audio file length. This would be great for on the fly creation of fx during theatrical mixes where the stability of the actual session is critical. Great for complicated pitching etc.

Pro Tools | Control bugs

Make EuControl and PT | Control compatible with a wider range of common wireless router types

A number of us users have spent hours trying to figure out why our iPads don't show up in the All Surfaces list in EuControl, only to find that it all works fine if we install a different router. No known settings are able to solve it. No list of compatible routers is known to exist. It currently comes down to luck whether you happen to have compatible wifi. Please test it with a wider variety and make it more compatible. ...more »

iLok Licences & Activations ERRORS!

I have an active/payed for activations but because of some sort of error I couldn't activate my product to finish working with a very important and urgent music release. I have tried everything myself, so I ended up manually de-activating a licence from my iLok2 so that I could activate it again, but once I did it I completely locked myself out from using the software! I am using Avid products starting from March 2017 ...more »

Freely assign multiple automation parameters to an X/Y similar to surround panner

Using the iPad interface we should be able to quickly and freely assign multiple automation parameters to an X/Y interface similar to the surround panner. I can see this working in the current context on a single track only. Assigning parameters from multiple tracks would require Pro Tools adding a new track type, "control track" that records only automation via this X/Y interface. I realize assigning parameters would ...more »

When Clip Groups are Created, color or shade differently

When you hit command + opt + G and group a series of clips, it's currently to hard to distinguish that group short of the tiny little text at the top left, that many of us with high res monitors can barely see. I propose that when you group clips, that group is either colored differently or at the very least has a slightly different (darker or lighter shade) than the rest of the clips on that track. Example of use in ...more »

Ability to create a region group (or similar) in aux tracks - for the gross mvmt of automation

The function of making a region group block in an aux track would allow for the quick movement and editing of complex automation. Imagine if the user had a small piece of audio as source with many presets, or complex motion of processing, these could be moved around like blocks, tuning, discovering - without twiddling. Like legos. Favorite processes could have names on the group block, they would have colors etc. In ...more »
