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 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 :)

Change Nesting of MIDI CC controller lanes

Why are everyday CCs like Mod Wheel and Sustain Pedal nested in a submenu in the controller lane, below arcane controllers such as Program Change, Mono Aftertouch and Sysex. This is a holdover from ancient versions of the software, time for a quick update.

Custom plug-in Mapping on Any Controller

Let us Custom plug-in map any parameter to "Any" Midi Controller (not just Avid apporaved ones) using the 'Right-click' button on our mouse? New Assignments would always overwrite Old Assignments Just right-click and just select controller of your choice, then may be 'save' my choice as MIDI Preset in some kind of drop down menu on the plugin, where you can bring up the settings again to overwrite the current settings ...more »

Pro Tools bugs

MIDI issues in PT 12

In PT 12.5 and 12.4 the midi functionality is so buggy as to be unusable. There are multiple issues - stuck notes, crashes, etc.

Separate MIDI notes on grid shortcut

To separate MIDI notes on the grid: 1. Set the Grid value. 2. Make an Edit selection or a marquee selection that includes the MIDI notes you want to separate. 3. Choose Edit > Separate > On Grid. 4. In the Pre-Separate Amount dialog, click OK. I've been using this feature a lot since discovering it hidden away in the edit menu, but I like to work quickly with keyboard shortcuts and I feel slowed down having to use the ...more »
