Audio to Midi

Where is audio to midi?!? Digi, its 2009! You have a great program but sometimes I wonder... If we had this, we wouldn't have to buy Drumagog to replace live drum sounds. We'd do audio to midi, then use the new midi track with BFD or DFH Superior.

 

We could sing a bass line and then have XPand play it on the bass!

MIDI Drum Editor/Keyboard Labeling

It would be great in the midi editor to be able to name the piano roll keys for writing drum parts or a drum editor dedicated to this.

Keyboard As MIDI Controller

This is a MUST now that Pro Tools is more mobile. Ableton has it and Logic both have it. It is a necessity for easily auditioning Software Instruments or even laying down ideas on the go - ie on a laptop. Why this hasn't been implemented into Pro Tools yet is absolutely mind blowing. Solution: It is very simple. Just like there is a keyboard focus button which activates all the shortcuts there could be a "Midi Keyboard" ...more »

Export MIDI Regions as Files

Pro Tools has a function to Export Audio Regions as Files, but there is no MIDI equivalent. The workaround is very time consuming.

 

Please add "Export MIDI Regions as Files"

 

EDIT: I'm aware that you can Export the track as one MIDI file -- Export Audio Regions as Files lets you export all separated regions on a track or in the Region List as separate Audio files. There is no MIDI equivalent.

humanize MIDI

I'd like a MIDI "humanize" function that would make random adjustments to velocity, starts and durations of selected MIDI notes. A simple dialog where the user would check or uncheck what he wants randomized (velocity, start times and durations) and how much randomization for each in ticks. The last setting entered is remembered. This is not a new concept or idea. All other DAWs have this. Many have had it for over ...more »

MIDI note names in MIDI Editor

Take a page from Cubase's book and have an option (or default) where each note in the piano roll of the MIDI Editor also displays it's note name.

 

In dense parts or score, being able to quickly read where a "bad" note is or how the part is laid out in Piano Roll mode would make life SOOOOOOO much better for those of us writing music daily.

 

Attached picture is low-res, but you get the idea.

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 »

Rename MIDI CC controller lanes

Great idea (via egroys over at the DUC).

 

It would be great if we could rename CC controller lanes.

For example, instead of Undefined (21) to something like 'Vibrato'.

General Midi Editing update

It would be amazing to see some helpful composer tools added to Protools.. Much like Cubase.. Expression mapping would be great. Also Parabolic Midi curves rather than having to do it with a straight line etc.. Also - Some view options to see only tracks with regions on them i a selected area. I am sure there are plenty more. Just look at cubase and copy them.. That would be awesome :)

Midi Curves for cc control

Hey Avid,

 

It would be really great to be able to draw curves on midi tracks for CC control on regions. Just like all the other DAW's out there.. Please make this happen and it will increase workflow :)

Prevent Pro Tools from pausing/skipping.

Every time when I play my Pro Tools project and while playing I try to add an instrument track, or an audio track, or an effect, or a send or change the cycle Pro Tools will pause for a moment. When you are producing a track that is so annoying and it takes you out of your creative flow. I know no other sequencer on the market that has this issue. And this can't be a CPU or a Ram issue because the competition clearly ...more »
