Drag MIDI To Commit -- Adjustable Default Bounce Length

This feature is super useful, i use it all the time....So why does it add an extra minute of bounce time onto the MIDI clip you're committing to audio? If my MIDI clip is 2 seconds, when i drag it to an audio track, the offline bounce window which pops up should say 2 seconds, not 1:02... this would save a ton of time if it wasn't trying to needlessly render 1:00 more than the intended length. If this extra time is accounting ...more »

Batch-Spot Multiple Clips to "Original Time Stamp" from Clip List

There should be a way to batch-spot multiple clips from the clip list to their original time stamp. Currently it is only possible to spot one clip at a time. Being able to batch-spot multiple clips to their original TC by dragging them to a track from the clip list would be a huge time saver.

Using Elastic Audio for tuning.

I have used elastic audio for tuning. It needs more control.

1, add a visual analysis of the notes pitch movement.

2. add a tool for raining in pitch movement like vibrato.

3. Give up the new programming and integrate melodyne's engine and tools.

Midi Import track names and assignment to general midi patches or like named instruments.

I was the Pro Tools "expert" at a DAW competition at Berklee College of music earlier in January 2018. Many features had me winning over Logic, Ableton and Garage band. One that made Pro Tools look inept was what happened when importing an elaborate MIDI file. This was one that had a decent mock up 30+ tracks of the score from Raiders of the Lost Ark. All the other DAW's read the midi track names on import. PT12.8.3 did ...more »

Access HDX Card DSP while using Core Audio Interface

I would love to be able to use my HDX Card's DSP while using a core audio interface. I am currently using a Merging Technologies Horus which allows me to access far more channels at high sample rates through core audio/ethernet port, than through Digilink/HDX port. But I still want to use the DSP resources for mixing.

 

Thank you Kindly.

Insert Time and Cut Time on separate keyboard shortcuts

I use the Time Insert and Time Cut ALL the time. It would be so much better if these two functions were separate keyboard shortcuts instead of being tied to a drop down on the Time Operations tool (Alt+1) Its super quick using (Alt+1, Enter) to continually make cuts or adding space. But having to switch back and forth clicking on the drop down, half the time accidentally clicking Change Meter or Song Start, is pretty ...more »

Smart Tool Intermittently not Working in PT 12.8.3

Trashcan Mac Pro (2013) 6-Core - OS X Sierra 10.12.6 - Pro Tools 12.8.3

 

The smart tool intermittently will not switch between trim, hand, and fades tools correctly while editing no matter where you place the cursor - have to shake mouse all over the screen and it will finally work.
