Separate Key Commands for Pre-Roll and Post-Roll

I usually have Post-Roll switched on all the time, and it's set to 200+ bars (when working in Bars & Beats mode, which, for music production is my preferred mode). That way, I can select a clip and play from its beginning, but usually I don't want Pro Tools to stop at the end of it. I like to have separate key commands to switch the two modes on and off individually. Application: when recording, I like to use a 2 Bar ...more »

Commit multiple audio tracks into a single track

I've found the new commit track feature very useful in v12 for keeping my sessions clean. I'd like to request the ability to consolidate two tracks into a singe track either using the commit or some similar feature. Here's the application: I have two separate instrument tracks, one for legato strings and one for pizz/spicatto/etc. works better this way in a lot of libraries. However the two tracks in the real world ...more »

LUFS and True Peak metering view

Please add both a LUFS and a True Peark meter to the metering section. There is no true marker of where your mixes are sitting without adding a metering plugin.

Import Partial/Selection Session Data

I'm a sound editor, I would like to ask Avid to renew the "import session data" function. It's been a long time that "Import Session Data" function haven't updated. It would be nice to have a features that can Import timecode range/partial session. With the import function right now, it's unclear and easy to wipe out all your automations if two sessions have overlap area/timecode if you are not careful enough. When ...more »

Transposable Chords-Ruler and 'Sibelius-style' Chords Input

Please Dear Avid improve the Chords-Ruler! It could help substantially during arranging. But the Input-System is very unpractical, and the midi-transpose function in 'Event Operations' does not work on the chords-ruler. A lot of times I have to transpose a song to accommodate a singer. Then I have to delete all the chords in the ruler and input them again in the new key. Also: Sibelius has an amazing Chord-Symbol-Input ...more »

Allow 'notes' in midi automation lane

I am using a midi track in addition to the instrument track for each VI that uses keyswitches to avoid having to constantly scroll the midi track vertically while editing either notes or keyswitches, which are usually at the very bottom or top of the range. If it would be possible to select 'notes' in an automation lane it could act as a 'keyswitch-lane' and I could cut down my track-count in half! It would be necessary ...more »

I/O limit needs to be increased.

I need to see all ASIO or Core audio inputs. I have been using an Audinate Dante audio network and I was shocked last week when I wanted to use my ProTools HD and it only gave me 32 voices, I thought it could do 192 tracks, oops I didn't read the small print. Then I had to switch over to a free program called Waves Tracks Live to record my taping. Seems silly that it is almost the year 2018 and there is a 32 voice limit ...more »

Multiple Memory Location Tracks

Working in post production, I rely heavily on Memory Locators for several uses : - Marking picture cuts - As a reminder of sounds that i still need to spot et other things that require some work - Taking notes of director's comments - Sometimes I also like to let the director drop markers while screening, that way the director wants a chang, he/she doesn't need to interrupt the screening or loose focus while taking notes ...more »

Key Command for Input Quantize On/Off

It would be great to have a Key Command (or assignable EuCon command) to simply turn Input Quantize On/Off. I have a command to open the IQ menu, but then I have to mouse over and click the On/Off button, usually several times in a writing session. This is a pain with my 3440x1440 display.

 

Bonus points for being able to "toggle" through the Quantization values with some sort of command.

Make Shuffle mode work like it did before clip layer features were added

Shuffle mode does not always work as expected when layered clips are involved, whether Layered editing is enabled or not. See images: 1) a set of clips, purple ones need to be removed. 2) select a purple one that overlaps a clip on at least one side. 3) delete while in Shuffle mode. The resulting edit uncovers the end of the first green clip, and does away with the yellow one, destroying the desired timeline. For clarity, ...more »
