Channel Identification Abilities for the Signal Generator Plugin - e.g. BLITS GLITS

I would love to see the addition of BLITS and GLITS tone generating capabilities to the Signal Generator plugin. Or even better would be user-definable features for automating tone and interrupt patterns. For example, this could be accomplished by adding fields such as "interrupt duration" and "interrupt frequency." In these fields the user could specify how long and often an interrupt, or mute of the signal for the ...more »

Signal Generator Plugin Presets Broken in Multi-Mono Mode

I tried this on multiple systems spanning multiple versions of Pro Tools. I don't know if it has ever worked properly. If I make a present of tones with all the channels unlinked, changing the preset doesn't recall all the settings for all the channels, only the currently selected channel. For example if I have a multi-mono signal generator on a 5.1 track. I unlink the channels and change the level of the tone so each ...more »

Allow muted clips to remain muted after processing with audiosuite

If you process a muted clip with audiosuite the muted clip becomes un-muted. It would be useful during times when you want to process a track containing both muted and unmuted clips. Eg: processing a dialog track for a film or a guitar track for music with certain sections of the track muted. Often there is a need to run a denoiser or an EQ and it would be much faster to process the entire track rather than on a clip ...more »

Separate MIDI notes on grid shortcut

To separate MIDI notes on the grid: 1. Set the Grid value. 2. Make an Edit selection or a marquee selection that includes the MIDI notes you want to separate. 3. Choose Edit > Separate > On Grid. 4. In the Pre-Separate Amount dialog, click OK. I've been using this feature a lot since discovering it hidden away in the edit menu, but I like to work quickly with keyboard shortcuts and I feel slowed down having to use the ...more »

disable Video Engine error messages until AVE is fixed

As it seems it's gonna take decades to fix the AVE, can we at have something similar like the disable 'write to..' warnings preference until the AVE is fixed? I'm going slightly nuts constantly having to click those errors away.

Mix Groups not functioning correctly

Running PT 12.7.0 HD with HDX on Sierra. We use separate mix and edit groups in our template with the "Link Mix/Edit Group Enables" unchecked. With this configuration the mix groups can no longer be turned on or off by clicking them in the Groups window. There is a strange variation within this malfunction. If I checkmark the "Link Mix/Edit Group Enables" the Mix groups work properly. If I then uncheck the Link Mix/Edit ...more »

Multiple Video Sync Offsets relatet to different video tracks

Video sync offset depends on what video codec you are using. It would be very handy, if you could set the the video sync offset indepently for evey video track you have in your session. I often have several videos with different codecs in one session (different picture versions, one Dnxhd video for work and one h264 for bouncing qicktime sapmles for customers etc.), and you always have two care about having set the right ...more »

MIDI Controller (CC) automation incorrectly read in PT 12.7

Midi continuous controllers (CC) are not correctly read in Pro Tools 12.7. When different parts of the timeline are played back with different CC values, these values are updated only if breakpoints are encountered. As a result, when playing back a different position with different CC values, these values will be read and updated only when a redundant breakpoint is placed or if some CC automation is encountered through ...more »

Copy Stereo plugin to Mono Track

Currently you can copy a mono plugin to a stereo track, but you can't copy a stereo plugin to a mono track. I understand the reason why, but frankly it doesn't make much sense. If the setting are the same between the channels, just apply those settings to the new mono plugin, it's not that hard. If the channels are different....then a popup window appears asking which channel you want to take settings from. Example ...more »

Workspace in a separate window

Having an option to allow the workspace window to exist outside the Pro Tools main window. The Workspace windows is quite powerful but it would be great to be able to have the Workspace on a separate monitor so it can be maximised and files then can be dragged into the edit window without having to constantly move the workspace window out of the way to see where I want to drag the file to. The same way the Disk Usage ...more »

Pro tools 12 Channel Preset

This feature would give you the ability to save your favorite track presets so that you can recall them later. If you didn't take the picture, I will explain a little better. Imagine if you have that perfect sound in one piano once. You can store that preset including the VI Instrument if the case, and you can recall it later. this feature would open an ocean of possibilities like save, presets for voices, busses, VI's, ...more »

Select all muted clip in one time

I need a function to select all the muted clip in the edit window in one time.

once all muted clip are selected, i can delete them, copy them in another place or in another playlist, color them, etc...

 

The focus is to clean a big session of post prod where all the non-used clips of multitacks audio files are muted.

But it should be usefull in another context.

Thanks
