Drums mode for MIDI editor

I would love to have an option to switch MIDI editor to DRUM EDIT MODE where there would be diamond or triangle markers for note start without showing its length. Would be also nice to have a possibility to switch from classic piano roll to MIDI note number mode, to set names for notes, load and save note names to file and display custom layers (e.g. show only named notes or show notes defined by user).

Additional Frozen Track indicators

Please add Frozen track indicators to the channel strips in the mix window.

 

also, it would be great to add a frozen track column to the tracks list for easy identification and selection.

 

while i'm on the tracks list, would also be good to be abel to select all of a certain kind of track at once, i.e. inactive, frozen, etc

Misc

Omni Floating Hardware Mixer Window

It would be great to have constant access to the Omni's hardware mixer during tracking and mix sessions, without having to navigate through Setup / Hardware / Mixer. It could be a floating window, or optional micro faders in the menu bar. Or even a keystroke to provide immediate access to the Mixer page. One example: my Mac's input comes in through the optical input. I use it to audition sound effects, RX, and to play ...more »

Spot dialog box bug

Please take a look at this screenshot and give me an opinion. Notice the time code where the cursor is parked. When the input dialog is set to "spot", shouldn't the "current location" show where the cursor is parked, so I can press the little down arrow and move that number to where I want to spot the incoming audio? The "current location" always comes up at "0". What's weird is my session doesn't even start at "0".

Skip Selection

If i wanted to edit out one or two bars of a song i would have to cut, shuffle, drag and only then i could listen to it. What if using the selection, the pre-roll and the post-roll, i could do the same preview without doing any edit? By toggling a button ON or OFF, i could tell pro tools that instead of playing the selection, it could jump over the selection. Lets say i have a selection between bar 48 and 50. Pre roll ...more »

Pro Tools 12.8: 7.1.2 and 7.1.4 tracks showing as 7.1 tracks on older Pro Tools versions

When opening Pro Tools sessions with 7.1.2 or 7.1.4 tracks on older Pro Tools versions (prior 12.8), the tracks will show up as 7.1 tracks and the height speaker channels will be truncated without warning. I think there should be at least an error message (like opening a session with 5.1 or 7.1 tracks on a non-HD System) or the tracks should be deleted from the session. If not, you will never know that the tracks had ...more »

Hidden group members follow edits

It would be great if you could hide members of a group but still have them follow group edits. For example. Let's say that you recorded a string section with spot mics on each instrument plus room mics and a deca tree. Then you did three passes to create a full orchestra sound. Adds up quick! . Being able to hide most of the members of the group would make for much cleaner editing. This could be a preference that could ...more »

Clip gain breakpoints follow groups

It would be useful if the clip gain actions could apply across all members of a group. Right now, if I highlight a section of clip in the Edit window, it highlights that section for all members of the track's active group. If I then use the mouse to drag the clip gain of that highlighted area up or down, it applies the changes to all of those grouped tracks. However, if I manually add a clip gain breakpoint using the ...more »
