Mapping MIDI messages to Key Commands

It would be great to have the ability to map MIDI messages to key commands. This is very helpful when using Lemur based applications to be able to tap a button on your iPad and have it send some kind of MIDI message to your DAW that actually will cause it to do some action like add a track, nudge a clip, create a new playlist, etc. To make this work in Pro Tools a 3rd party application is needed to intercept MIDI messages ...more »

Grabber Tool "guide" clips do not cut correctly from continuous file

Behavior is displayed in this quick ...more »

Double clicking between markers selects the area between both markers

This would allow you to instantly loop a section of the session, select it for editing, fit to window, etc. without having to select-shift-select the markers in the marker track or memory location window.

Auto-update show/hide for memory locations

Currently, if you create a show/hide memory location that allows you to only view your drum tracks for example, and you then decide to add a new track to that group, you have to manually update the memory location or else the newly created track will not show up when selecting that memory location again. This is very inconvenient and makes this feature almost useless in my opinion and track folders preferable. I find ...more »

Video track "on line" key command - for multiple video tracks

When there are multiple video tracks in a session a key-command/region-select is needed to select which video track is to play. Having to reach to the left of tracks to select the blue button is so yesterday. especially with the large screens. This would be very usefui when comparing multiple videos when conforming.

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.
