Audio Suite tool pallet with tabs

I request an Audio Suite view format displaying multiple Audio Suite choices as a single square organized with named tabs. Instead of having 3 or 8 Audio Suite choices cluttering up the edit window or other monitors they would be in a nice stack. Perhaps there would be a moderately sized Audio Suite icon that would expand into actual tool size so that there would be minimal obstruction of edit window. Any combination ...more »

Sequence as tab

Working with video projects or productions with multiple versions, it's always bugging me how I have to create X amount of new sessions and re-import everything, including a plethora of audio tracks, fades, plugin settings etc. all of which will be duplicated on my local drive. Wouldn't it be more simple if Pro Tools allowed us to create "Sequences" the way video editors do? The way I see it, we could open a "new sequence ...more »

Activate my Pro Tools license in two separate locations

Just like AIR Music Technology and Eventide allow:

https://www.eventideaudio.com/support/faq/how-many-computers-can-i-activate-my-license

How many computers can I activate my license on?

Using iLok License Manger, you can activate the license in two separate locations, each of which can be either a computer, or an iLok license key. You can move these licenses at any time using PACE's iLok License Manager software.

Option to Retain Track Height on Import

In my standard session format, I like to have, for example, each kit piece at a 'Mini' size, so it's easier to navigate. Trouble is, whenever I import that to a different session, it makes them all whatever size is being used most recently there, meaning I have to resize all 12 tracks every time!

 

Would be great if the session data import screen had a checkbox option to retain origin track height.

Playlist Features: Add Double / Quad Comp buttons

Currently in playlist mode you have two options under the playlist name: "Solo" and "Up Arrow". When comping vocals it is very common to track a bunch of takes and make main vocals, double vocals, and quad vocals. The same could be said for comping guitar tracks or anything that needs doubles or quads. If you look on the left, those two buttons leave enough real-estate for possibly 5 more buttons. The buttons I would ...more »

Melodyne ARA integration

I'd like to see an integrated implementation of Melodyne ARA integration similar to Sonar and Presonus sequencers.

Presets for 'import session data' elements

I do a lot of session data import when I switch to a new mix using that terrible pull-down menu to select different options, which is cumbersome.

I'd like to set presets for elements I often use, (similar to window configuration) and be able to pull that up instantly.

When the Low Latency Monitoring is engaged and send busses on tracks are bypassed, they still pass audio

If the Low Latency selected path is at the top of the the bus I/O Tab, when LLM is engaged all the send busses on tracks show to be bypassed, these still pass audio although look to be bypassed.

This is the case when one of the buses is mapped to an output (chan 7&8 on the HD I/O) at the top of the bus tabs list.

 

We have a work around for it by leaving this bus at the top of the bus tab list.

Add "Automation mode" to the Import Session Data dialog

"Automation mode" should be one of the options in the "Track Data to Import" drop-down menu in order to allow imported tracks to retain their original automation mode. As it is right now, automation mode defaults to "read" on all imported tracks.

Updates to Import Session Data menu

The "Tracks" section of this menu needs an update so one can navigate and find tracks quicker. All of my sessions are large and track names don't always correspond literally to their contents so this display should be expandable and visually recall the sessions edit view somehow so one doesn't have to scroll and scroll or even pull up the actual session separately in order to find what you're looking for first.

"Yes/No To All" button whenever there's a Yes/No question.

It's so simple! When I'm removing files that I selected and I know for a fact everything I selected is to be removed, why do I have to click Yes 20,000 times? Additionally, when I slide a clip into a neighboring track and I know for a fact I want all of the same automation to apply to it, why can't I just click "Yes to all." PLEASE implement this.
