Copy/paste from a session to another

It would be great to have the ability to open a session, select one or several clips and/or markers, or anything else, copy them, close the session, open another one, and paste it. Would be useful in addition to the "import session data..." that only works with tracks.

Simultaneously edit main and alternate playlists at once

There should be an option to simultaneously edit the main playlists AND alternate playlists together without having to open the tracks playtlist view and select all the lanes one by one. i.e: you decide to remove 8 bars from a song using the All group and shuffle mode. But many tracks do have alternate playlists if you mistakenly edit without selecting all and every alt playlist in every track, things can get complicated. ...more »

Edit and mix window showing synchronous track view when toggling

Example: Big session holding many tracks. Working in the edit window let me say on track number 48 (numbers only to show how many tracks instead of saying Git1, Piano2 etc). The track shown at the top of the edit window is for example number 46. Now when switching to the mix window, it would be a fantastic feature having track number 46 (always the track at the top of the edit window) automatically on the far left ...more »

Link Marker Positon to Shuffle Mode

When editing i often use Shuffle Mode of course.Id love to see a freature that also Moves the Markers after the Edit Point. When inserting a Part all following Marker shift to the right and vice versa when cutting out all following Markers shift to the left like the following Clips.

 

I would call it "Link Marker Position to Shuffle Edit"

Separate Clips at all Memory Location Markers

Have a feature in the Memory location window to put a clip separation everywhere there is a memory location marker for a highlighted track.

 

For those of us who edit LOTS of voiceovers, I will make separations at all the memory locations (bad parts in the script) so that when I'm editing....I don't move all the audio further down stream, causing it to be off it's marker.

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 »

Adjustable/darker brightness for Mix/Edit Window

Please update Pro Tools to include an adjustable brightness or a darker window option similar to the new Venue 5.0 software.

 

It'd be much easier on the eyes with a darker window option.

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).

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 »

Fade Window should have optional timecode resolution (locked to session TC format), rather than just milliseconds

Love the updated Fade Window in Pro Tools 12. My only issue is I work in various timecode frame rates so trying to cut sound effects in millisecond resolution isn't convenient. How many milliseconds in duration is a frame at 29.97, 23.976 or 25 frames? I'd love the option to have this window lock itself to the session timecode resolution and allow quick and easy quarter frame, half frame, 1 frame and multiple frame input ...more »

In Grid mode, use the Command (Mac) or Control (Windows) key to toggle off (or “clutch” out of)

It would be very handy to turn that function on and off via the prefs menu. In some situations like high speed editing it is very annoying to have the insertion/selection always jumping to grid mode.

 

Thanks

Mirrored Playlist Editing

It would be efficient to have a way to choose mirrored playlist editing in the same fashion as mirrored Midi editing. Especially when performing cut time or add time commands. A simple checkbox would suffice. When moving sections of a song around this is a workflow killer. For example. If you decide to copy and past a chorus to double it or remove an instrumental section, you need to be able to have the playlists follow. ...more »
