Coloured Faders

Hello! I know, that we can colour the channels, tracks, clips etc. What would be nice is, to have the faders for Aux, Sub and VCA channels in a colour, other than the standard Grey. It saves steps when setting your mix up. It could be a user-definable situation. We already have the fader of the record-armed track showing red, so, it shouldn't be difficult to do. Actually, we can go the full distance and have all the ...more »

Comments contain Screenshots: settings for external hardware

Hi Protools People, We'd like a feature in the comments section for each track where we can attach screenshots and/or links to photos that detail settings on external hardware. This would be much easier and less time consuming to document this detail using photos. I know everyone is mixing in the box, however some people still like to use their favourite hardware mic pre or some other box that does that special thing ...more »

Add Playback Engine settings to Dashboard (New/Open session)

It would be useful having the possibility to set Disk cache size and HW Buffer size before opening or creating a session by adding two drop-down menus in the Dashboard window. Currently (as of PT 2018.1) Cache size and Buffer size are not saved and recalled with the session; the last used values are set. The drop-down menus could simply show the last used settings so that the user can check them and change them if necessary. ...more »

Remember Channel-State of Multi-Mono Plugins

Pro Tools should remember which channel of a multi-mono plugin was displayed the last time the plug-in GUI was displayed. For multi-mono plugins on, for example a 5.1 dialog bus, it is time consuming to switch to the center channel every time the plugin GUI is displayed.

INTEGRATED BEEP ON PREROLL BEFORE RECORDING FOR ADR & VOICE OVERS

Hello, What I think is missing & should be integrated is when you want to punch in for ADR or voice / over & you have set yr preroll at 3 secs for example, a beep should sound on countdown before the recording actually begins, so the artist knows when to start. There should be an on/off display switch, ideally on the transport, or a shortcut for doing this. Thanks.

EuCon control of Midi CCs

Have any EuCon controller map a Pro Tools track's Midi CC controls. In the case of the Artist Mix, it would control up to the first 8 midi CCs that are assigned to a channel. Cubase can control Midi CCs by its Quick Control feature, and this is activated on the controller by pressing and holding the EQ button on an Artist Mix (other controllers may vary), it would seem sensible to follow the same convention. It would ...more »

Add user definable Audiosuite Favorites folder to right click clip menu.

It would be great if there were a user defined folder for frequently used audiosuite plugins on the right click menu for clips. Having access to these favorite audiosuite plugins via the right click menu could make oft repeated processes much quicker to access.
