Audio Engine reset

Is there a valid reason for having to quit PT's to change audio interfaces? I normally use HDX via HD i/o but I have an instruments with a built-in interface that require no physical patching and it's really a bother to have to physically patch 14 channels of i/o or quit, restart PT's and virtually patch every time I use the instrument. I believe this is an area that could use improving. An audio engine reset or update ...more »

Adjust Send Levels Using An Integrated Slider

We adjust send levels in Pro Tools by mouse clicking on a bus, this loads a slim floating fader outside of the mix window. We then need to click and drag this floating fader to set the send volume level. Wouldn't it be great if we didn't need to open up the floating fader? Instead, we adjust the send level over the instance of the bus like a plug-in slider? This would save countless mouse clicks within a mix.

Set Independent Track Widths In Pro Tools Mix Window

Under "View" we can change the width of all the tracks in the Mix Window to either standard (Wide) or Narrow. The only drawback to the narrow view is that plug-ins and track names become heavily abbreviated making it a challenge to quickly read a plug-in or track name I would like to have the choice of track widths in the mix window. A typical mix window arrangement I would like to see in a future Pro Tools Mix Window ...more »

Pro Tools bugs

PT 2018.1 - GUI loses responsiveness/functionality in large MIDI sessions with Vienna Ensemble Pro 6 (latest build)

PT 2018.1 - GUI loses responsiveness/functionality in large MIDI sessions after the session has been open about 1 hour or more.😡 😡

Track redraws are very slow after hide/unhide. Edit window is almost unworkable. This issue is solved by quitting Pro Tools and reopening the session.

Softube "Console 1" - type display for Pro Tools (EQ/DYN curve display)

Pro Tools could have a 3rd window option - Edit, Mix and "Console". It would be great to have the transfer curves of the EQ/DYN always in view as a full window. As you focus a track, the information from the EQ/Dyn (Avid Channel Strip) would populate the graphs. With the release of PT2018 and the EQ View on each of the channels in the Mix window - this seems like an easy thing to do. It's also technically being done on ...more »

Muted Track Volume Levels Shown Greyed Out

What if all muted tracks/channels would show their volume levels in a dark grey (dull) colour? Often in big sessions it's a bit confusing (to me) seeing all the (muted) coloured levels jumping up and down without hearing them. In my opinion this feature would improve the general overwiew in the mix window. There could be a tick box in the preferences to allow muted track volume levels to be shown greyed out. Does anyone ...more »
