Type in automation breakpoint values

I waste so much time messing around with automation breakpoints trying to fine adjust to get them in the right place. I recently started learning Cubase, and found it incredibly useful to be able to manually set the time and value of automation points. Pro tools already has this functionality in the main counter when it comes to other selections such as clips or midi notes. So if you could just select automation breakpoints, ...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.

"Apply to all" checkbox when removing unused files from the BIN.

When I get a faulty OMF (containing much more timeline and clips than the actual video) I usually import, cleanup and import that in a new session again. Because:

When selecting and removing unused data, you have to click "yes" or " no" for every single file. So when it's 10294 files you have to say "yes" or "no" for all 10294 files, no way to get out of it.

Unlimited Instrument Tracks

Please allow for unlimited instrument and MIDI tracks in all versions of Pro Tools. For composers running enormous Vienna Ensemble Pro templates this is essential. Avid would be crazy to not allow for this — I'm sure many others like me would prefer to not have to jump ship for Cubase or other DAWs that don't impose arbitrary track limits.

Aux send insert plugins

I'm sure I'm not the first to want this feature, but being able to add an eq before sending to a reverb ( without creating a whole extra aux and return channel) would add a lot of functionality and clear a ton of unnecessary clutter. Wow, no takers? Maybe I need to clarify? This feature is a no-brainer to me. OK, simple ( I hope) explanation. Having plugins on the send of a channel makes these plugins post channel plugins. ...more »

Plugin search bar

When you clic an insert slot, beside showing "no insert", "default EQ", "default Dyn" and categories, it would improve the workflow so much if there's also a plugin search bar, like: No insert ------------------ Search bar ------------------ default eq default dyn ------------------ multi-channel multi-mono ------------------ i/o Search bar would real time predict possible plugins while writing, something like: Search: ...more »

Add Clip breaks while recording

I would love the ability to separate my clips while recording. This would be great for anyone who does concert recording. It would allow you to quickly bounce out after a concert before you do the fine edit. It would also be helpful when recording multi-track from a Venue console. This would be a big improvement.

Toolbar Custom Resize Option

It would be enormously helpful if, somewhat like Track Resize, we could increase the size of the Toolbar. I love that we can rearrange things – now we need to be able to make it larger etc.

Remember last fade setting (equal power / gain)

To change the default fade type you have to go into the preferences.

It would be more logical to automatically change the default fade when double clicking the fade to change it.

(Or add extra button next to " OK" : "Make default" )

 

When doing dialog I use the equal power fades.

When doing sound effects I use equal gain fades.

So that's why ;)

Nesting Folders like other DAWs

As a composer, there would be great value in being able to create a similar "nested folder" structure, similar to other DAWs. While While ProTools remains my primary DAW for Film and Game work, having a large number of tracks makes management of several hundred tracks cumbersome. Currently I use groups of course, but my workflow would be improved being able to expand/collapse sections of instruments. Perhaps there ...more »
