Option-Click on a Send to change Track View to that Sends level

Changing the track view to a sends level (or mute and pan for that matter) is ridiculously involved considering how often this task is performed, especially when all 10 sends are being used on a track. As far as I can tell, Option-clicking on a send does nothing other than open that sends fader. So it would be nice to add some functionality to an Option-Click on a send. Option-Click the send and the track view changes ...more »

Stereo Links to simplify Gain, Panning, Inserts, sends, etc.

Currently if I want to perform only one operation to control gain, panning, processing, inserts, sends, etc. for my hardware stereo left/right inputs (i.e. keyboard synths, drum machines, sequencers), I have to create an Auxilliary Channel which just adds more clutter to my numerous channel inputs. I have an Allen & Heath QU32 digital mixer that allows me to link any two of the 32 channels starting with an odd number ...more »

Lock Insertion Follows Playback and Record Status

These two buttons are frequently mis triggered as they are both next to commonly used keys on the keyboard. I can't tell you how many times I've accidentally gone out of punch mode because my fat finger bumps 6 when hitting 3 to start recording and on the next pass when I try to punch I completely miss recording and have to start the take over again. The "N" key is close to commonly used "B" and of course the spacebar ...more »

Stereo (and multichannel) side chains please!

Pro Tools, you are boss in so many routing related issues. But, your side chaining functionality leaves something to be desired. Apart from that they are only delay compensated in HDX, they are also only mono. In this day of multichannel audio, this won't do. I'm sure you are aware of this and are working on it. But here's my vote for it anyway. Thanks and looking forward to being able to use the Pro-L2 properly (like ...more »

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 »
