    Some bugs submitted by Pro Tools IdeaScale member "major":

    1. Automation doesn't follow edit in this case: http://duc.digidesign.com/showthread.php?t=249154

    2. Edit doesn't preserve fades: http://duc.digidesign.com/showthread.php?t=251988

    3. ADC across multiple systems with satellite

    4. Snapshots in TL Space don't fire properly/and crackle

    5. Waves Latch Prime Bug

    6. Latch mode doesn't auto-match properly on stop and blows away all automation down the timeline.

    7. The workspace sucks

    Most of these have been broken for YEARS!

    Digi is listening 8.01 has lots of bug fixes, great to see this happening. This forum and the DUC are great reasons to see that there is a lot of reason for optimism in the future of Pro Tools.

    Action is the only way the end user will really feel that Digi is listening.

    HEAT is built into PT and not a plugin. People have asked for a colored mixer for PT for years AFAIK

    Anyone who agrees with this is basically asking that Pro Tools stand still for the next decade. I would definitely not say that ALL known bugs should be prioritized before new features. The major bugs, yes, but not every little glitch. If any of you have ever tried developing software or anything involving code, you should realize how long it can take to cover only a small fraction of bugs. Cover the important bugs, then move on with new features, because the latter is much more crucial for Pro Tools at the moment, and it's about time that PT covered some new ground.
