Different buffer sizes (96 Please!)

It would be great if you could select different buffer sizes in the playback engine. I have a lot of projects where it would be great to have a inbetween size from 64 to 128, 96 would be the perfect balance between lower latency and dramatically increased CPU usage. Many other apps allow buffer sizes in between the factor of 2 sizes.

Allow Softube Console1 To Import Pro Tools Track Numbers

As a Console1 user, the only real frustration I have when using it with Pro Tools is that the track orders in Pro Tools and Console1 don’t sync. This means that any time I move or add tracks in the Pro Tools session, the Console1 track layout must then be manually updated to match the new track layout in PT, a cumbersome and really unnecessary extra step. Softube have said that they can and will make this functionality ...more »

"Automatically Copy Files on Import" should be on by default

Too many mix engineers receive sessions with missing audio files all because the non-pro users do not know that the simple preference "Automatically Copy Files on Import" is not, by default, checked on their system.

Automatically delete unused playlists

Hey all! Up to Pro Tools 12.6, I could delete empty playlists by simply switching from the playlist view to the waveform view and then back again. The playlists without audio content would be gone. This feature was extremely helpful for things like huge loop recording efforts - say you'd have five vocal phrases that would be looped onto ten playlists each. That's fifty playlists which could then be combined onto five ...more »

Default playback engine

There are a lot of devices (hardware and software alike) that hijack the playback engine after a crash or even restarting pro tools. Would be epic if you guys made a "default" go to playback engine.

Record Enable and Input Through stereo channels separately

I would like to be able to "Record Enable" the left and right channels separately. Maybe with a right click on the record enable button or some other modifier key combination to get to a drop down with a list of separate channel choices or all channels. Then you could record the left side first, then record another take on the right side of a stereo track. Otherwise you have to track to two mono tracks, output the two ...more »

Scale fonts and size of Application Manager window

The manager window is so small on my 4k monitor that I have to use a magnifying glass to read it. Please add a feature to allow scaling the window and fonts so it is usable. Note that scaling in system display settings has no effect on the manager window.
