Shortcut for making two mono audio tracks into one stereo.

Shortcut for making two mono audio tracks into one stereo. Kind of the opposite of Split Stereo Track into 2 Mono Tracks.

VST Support!

FXPansion's VST to RTAS adapter is buggy, it crashes my system every time. Pro Tools should have it's own VST capability so us Pro Tools users can have a much wider pallet of instruments using only one DAW. That one DAW should be Pro Tools and nothing else. Does this make any sense to you guys?

Batch Track Naming

In current PT If I need to name 30 tracks e. g. Foley 1--Foley 30 I need to do it one track at a time. This is rather time consuming when dealing with large sessions. It would be nice if I could select a number of tracks, type "Foley" and let Pro Tools assign consecutive numbers to "Foley" automatically. PT should be smart enough to understand that if I type "Foley 10" I need track names start from 10 and on. And it would ...more »

Show waveform content while dragging / moving

Its a bad idea not to see the waveform when you move regions. It just makes it harder to know exactly where to drop it.

Track Folders

Big mixes require good organization, it would be great to be able to have track folders (for example-for your 32 tracks of drums!)

Region/Clip Based Effects

EQ and gain parameters could be assigned to clips. This would greatly simplify automation and editing especially in post production.

Eleven Rack features

Standalone Eleven Rack editor

A standalone editor for Eleven Rack (outside of ProTools) would be a crucial addition for Eleven Rack owners. Launching ProTools just to access Eleven Rack's editor is totally excessive, and uses up too much RAM and system resources.

Bounce to WAV and MP3 at the same time

Would allow you to bounce your final mix, and save it as an mp3 as well as a wave file. Good for creating a final mix for a CD Master, and providing a client with a disc that they can use to put music online without having to convert it. And, we wouldn't have to hear the same song bounced twice.

Trim knob on audio tracks

A trim knob that works like the plugin placed before the channel plugin path would be nice. This would help in facilitating proper gain staging of tracks that are recorded too hot or too soft without using up a plugin slot.

Include a "Bounces" Folder When Creating a New Session

Currently when you bounce to disc, the audio file defaults to go to the regular audio folder. I always create a bounces folder in the main session folder and point all the bounces there.

 

It would be nice to have a separate folder already made when the session is made. Either in the main folder, or in the audio folder, or even have a preferences setting that lets the user decide where the bounces should go.
