Track locking

I would like to lock guide track (or any other chosen track) in edit and mix window so that it would stay always visible when you scroll through tracks. Excel has this feature, but cannot find its name there. Would be very useful!

Selected track becomes solo

Create a function to a selected track (by a clip or otherwise) becomes solo. Cubase has this feature (optional). To listen (and editing), it's fantastic. This is faster than: click + "shift S".

Eliminate maximum audio track count

The maximum amount of tracks I am able to create should be dictated by my system capabilities and not by an arbitrary number.

 

We should not have to upgrade to Pro Tools HD to have more tracks active.

BASIC EDITING of 'frozen' clips - like Ableton Live

After using the 'track freeze function' I wanted to trim and duplicate a portion of 'frozen' audio, but Pro Tools 12.4 does not allow this.

 

It would be good to allow basic editable functions of frozen audio clips, like functionality found in Ableton Live 9 software. Using Ableton we can currently move; edit, cut, copy, paste and trim AFTER tracks have been frozen.

Track height - lock

It would be great to be able to lock track height or a group track height. I know one can make memory location to set and retrieve various track heights - however this would be faster.... particularly in post production editing and mixing movie soundtracks, when there can be hundreds of tracks, it would be helpful to lock track heights to a small size and still be able to see them on the screen but keep them small while ...more »

Import Session Data: Track Names as an option when Matching Tracks

For film and TV: If I send a session from a template to an editor (or several), who does some work and changes track names to something helpfully descriptive (Cars 1-4, Rain 1-8, etc.), I'd like to be able to match tracks back into my master session, and include their changed track names as well as the clips. As it currently works, matching tracks and importing gives you of course plenty of options, but updating the ...more »

Edit View Separator Track / Space

I would love to be able to see more visual separation of sections of my mix in the edit view window. I often find myself putting in extra tracks to act as separators between elements in my mix. If I could insert a dedicated 'separator' track - that looked unique in some way - it would work well as a quick visual reference for navigating my way around the more complex mixes. Even just the ability to add empty space ...more »

Used Mono buses don't show up in "Yellow" on Mono Tracks

This is glitch on Mono Trakcs only (on the Sends slots). Mono buses that are currently in use don't show up in "Yellow" to indicate it's being used. For example: If bus 1-2 is being used on stereo track somewhere, bus 1 (Mono) or bus 2 (Mono) won't be in Yellow for when your setting a bus on a Mono Tracks Sends. So it looks like the bus is free but's really it's being used. I'm currently using PT 12.5.0, 12 processor ...more »

Highlight track(s) during dragging of clip(s)

Highlight the tracks the selected clips are on while dragging them to other tracks.

This would help to see if you are dragging the clips to the desired tracks.
