Save/Load Plug-in 'chains' (common plug-ins combos)

It would eliminate the awfully slow process of importing session data, copying plugins, deleting tracks, etc.

 

(Changed from "Channel Strip Presets" to avoid confusion with the Channel Strip plug-in.)

Red book CD authoring

It would be nice to have a Redbook CD authoring system included within protools similar to CD architect.

Mixer Update - more intelligent soloing

Pro Tools seriously lags behind its competitors here. Here is a non-exhaustive list of improvements, if you have any more please add to comments. If I solo the 'Drum Aux' all tracks associated with that Aux should play, it is silly I have to solo all the tracks manually. If I have a delay and reverb send on my Vocal channel, when I solo the Vocal channel, I should also hear the delay and reverb. Yes, I can 'solo safe' ...more »

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 »

Auto Naming a VCA Track to the name of its Group Assignment

When assigning a group to a VCA Track, Pro Tools could Auto rename the VCA Track to the name of the group that you assigned to it.

 

ie: assigning group named "Drums VCA" would change the name of the VCA to "Drums VCA"

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 »

Mixer Update - Show Only '' tracks

The ability to show only audio tracks or show only VCAs or Aux etc, it would be nice if you could select a combination like Aux and VCA for example, and the option to always keep the master fader presnets.

This would be good for setting up Window Configurations that you could quickly switch between on busy mixes.

Mixer Undo Feature

Cubse and Studio One have recently implemented this feature and I think Pro Tools should to!

Bounce Vocal Up / Down Versions in one go

It would be awesome to have a bounce workflow that allowed to print a number of version. A tick box in the bounce window possibly. Options would be eg. Vocal +1dB, Vocal -1dB, TV mix, Vocals only etc.

 

At the moment I use the trim plugin as the last plugin across the voc channel and set the value there for each bounce version.

Select Clips by Color

Select Clips by Color will really help to extent your workflow.

- When recording dialogue/Foley/Soundscapes and selecting the best takes.

- Preparing ADR & Foley tracks

- Export different stems all over your session.

- And way more options

 

And to finish this idea, Make the colors available for Apple Script or Something else programmable.

 

Thanks AVID!

Enable Pinch-to-Zoom Gestures

The majority of applications for Mac (and also some for Windows) support the two-finger pinch-to-zoom in/out gesture on touchpads, yet Pro Tools does not.

 

Cmd [ ] is great, but having this gesture-based functionality enabled would definitely make for faster workflow when moving around a session.

 

The two-finger drag works, so why not this?

Assertion Errors when importing audio - Using 'Clear Find' as a 'Solution'

I would sometimes have "Assertion Errors" when importing audio into Pro Tools from the Workspace Browser, starting in PT 11 and still happening in PT 12. It wouldn't always happen, and seemed to sometimes be fixed, then come back. This has been happening the last few years. Recently when using Pro Tools Field Recorder Workflow in Post Production, I suddenly had an assertion error(Attachment 01) crop up when trying to ...more »
