Batch Processing

Pro Tools needs to add Batch Processing and Batch Commands. How many times have you done tedious tasks of moving things to playlists, or organizing tracks, or applying AudioSuite plugins on multiple clips, or bouncing out different stems, or something.

 

I think being able to add batch commands would greatly help improve workflow in Pro Tools. It's in Audition and it's awesome.

Smell-O-Audio

I think we need a system that is similar to Smell-O-Vision but with audio so that we can smell what the sound smells like , different guitar pedal keyboard smell , and also the singers breath smell in the mic Smell-O-Vision was a system that released odor during the projection of a film so that the viewer could "smell" what was happening in the movie. The technique was created by Hans Laube and made its only appearance ...more »

Move Muted Clips to playlist Command

This would be a great feature for comping dialog tracks quickly in film post. Often as I am listened through scene I use the mute key command to mute the secondary mics within a sequence of shots. While I like to take these out of the primary track view for mixing, I do not want to delete them in case I need a tail or piece of tone later. The easiest action would be to just select over a section of clips and when you ...more »

DSP vs Native Plug in coloring

Make it so DSP instantiations are colored differently from native instances of plugins. Right now the only way to definitively tell is to open the plugin. Too tedious if trying to maximize DSP usage in a large session. Of course this has implications for BYPASS coloring also. With coloring it adds speed and value to the HDX / DSP platform. Glancing at the mixer and seeing whats DSP vs Native in a second would be a real ...more »

Playback Speed

Podcast creators/producers need to be able to listen back to spoken word audio at high speed! My greatest disappointment with choosing ProTools has been that it's not possible to just click some sort of a FF button, as you can on every other system I've used, to play back your audio at 1.5x or 2x faster speed. Especially now in a world where everybody and their cousin is creating a podcast, you really ought to have ...more »

Collaboration tools do not work.

(This is a bug report which I prevoiusly posted in S3 bugs by mistake. Since posting this I've also tried relocating ProTools to the desktop and disabling my firewalls based on comments in other forums, to no effect) 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate, Intel core i7-6700K CPU 4.00 GHz, 16 GB RAM, running ProTools 12.5.2 In collaboration tools, both the "invite another user" and "artist chat" buttons create a blank popup window ...more »

Move/Copy Plug-in in-between' two contiguous Plug-ins

It would be great if you could move or copy a plug-in in-between two contiguous plug-ins.

At present, we only have the option to replace one of the plug-ins and it is time-consuming dragging plug-ins down first to create a empty insert slot.

When hovering in-between two plug-ins a highlighted line should inform the user the dragged plug-in will be inserted in-between these plug-ins.

Export Mono file bug

I am getting very tired of running into bugs every 5 minutes! This bug appears to be related to the other bug I posted about where track bounce bounces only stereo tracks. Exporting clips as files is doing the exact same thing. I went to export a mono bass part I had to render due to some other bug and it only gives me the option for interleaved or dual mono. This is getting ridiculous Avid! UPDATE: I verified this is ...more »

Window Scrolling Glitch

Pro Tools 12.7.1 has introduced a quite annoying bug. I am often zoomed in on a track while playing back and making adjustments to clips. I often stop the playhead and do some adjusting, re-locate the playhead and continue. Worked great in 12.7 but now when I stop the playhead the entire window jumps to a previous area. After moving to where I want it and hitting play again it jumps yet again to a previous area that is ...more »

Laggy fader redraw

I'm running Pro Tools 12.7.1 and just upgraded to Sierra and I'm finding the fader redraw is very laggy. I'm at 12% system usage on a track without any plugins on it just adjusting the volume with my mouse and the fader is jumping around like I'm on the verge of running out of resources. I'm running a late 2014 MBP 2.8GHz quadcore, 16GB ram and 512 SSD and Apollo silver face via Thunderbolt UPDATE: Two things seem to ...more »
