Option+Scroll on macOS Sierra is broken

I'm having very erratic option+scroll behavior, with PT 12.5.2 on macOS Sierra 10.12. (Yes I know it's not supported, but you'll have to deal with this issue at some point, so I'm letting you know.) normally option+vertical-scroll should zoom in/out on the timeline, and option+horizontal-scroll should zoom waveforms. But since I installed Sierra, now any option scrolling does both, and very oversensitively. It has also ...more »

Pro Tools 12 HD with Melodyne and VocAlign Full Integration

It would be one of the best features if Pro Tools could integrate with Melodyne and VocAlign in a way that makes them start analyzing whenever we start recording so that as soon as we finish that take it becomes available on the same wave screen but below the audio and in a way that makes pro tools start having Melodyne or VocAlign on the fly, whenever we need to tune or align something during the record process, sometimes ...more »

MIDI Editor Overhaul

In my opinion, Pro Tools 12 is the most powerful DAW out there for every application bar MIDI, where it is seriously lacking compared to other popular/major brands. I think a MIDI Editor overhaul would be very well received by both current and potential Pro Tools users, and would complete such an otherwise well-executed DAW. Here are a few of my ideas: Shortcut Key Commands Octave Up/Down (same command for individual ...more »

auto spot region at time stamp

Some times i have to place region in dubbing project recorded by other facility with different software o only send my some clip and not the entire project. Protools in spot mode can place the clips at the time stamp, i think that an option to place the region at their time stamp automatically will be great, with out many click in the spot dialogue

Commit - Doesn't render audio tails beyond region or clip

This is so basic. Please allow Pro Tools an option in the commit box to render the audio tails for regions and clips beyond the selected commit clip or region. This way the committed clips will have plugin effects rendered properly such as reverb tails, delays, etc and not be cut off abruptly.

Drag Multiple Clips From Different Tracks As One

Pro Tools Idea

 

Adding the option to lock clips together for the purpose of dragging clips from multiple tracks as one.

 

I know about consolidate but I find it annoying that once I consolidate I have to zoom in or out in order to select my clips so i can move them.

Locking them together would save alot of time for me, please consider it

S3 mute buttons malfunction when soloing channels

When soloing one or more channel, all other channel mute buttons lit up. This is not the appropriate behaviour. Their state should stay the same, just like in the edit- and mix windows. There is no reason why those mute buttons lit up, as it is already indicated that tracks are soloed, by their solo buttons being lit, as well as by the blinking clear solo button.

Add Eucon option to disassociate keyboard modifiers from control surface

Please add an option to disassociate the computer keyboard modifier keys from Eucon control surfaces. I am often recording/editing on a Pro Tools session at the same time the engineer is operating the control surface. If I am using the OPTION key and he touches a fader at the same time, it jumps to 0dB.

Separate Clips at all Memory Location Markers

Have a feature in the Memory location window to put a clip separation everywhere there is a memory location marker for a highlighted track.

 

For those of us who edit LOTS of voiceovers, I will make separations at all the memory locations (bad parts in the script) so that when I'm editing....I don't move all the audio further down stream, causing it to be off it's marker.
