Folders in Clip List - Audio Wild Record / Audio Clip Selection "Clip Source Window"

Audio Wild Record / Audio Clip Selection "Clip Source Window" The Ability to record in the "Clip Source Window" a wild mono or stereo track, where the clip ends up in the Clip menu or a specified folder i.e Wild VO Records, saves a lot of time and maintains a clean timeline, rather than having to navigate through unneeded extra tracks and clips on the timeline which is very time consuming. please see attachment.

Multiple Marker layers

I'd like to be able to color code multiple layers of markers so that they coincide with my audio layers of dialogue, foley, scene starts, music cues, etc. when I'm spotting.

Improved user interface windows

In windows 10 (and earlier) and Pro Tools 12 (and earlier), windows appear with large borders around and some even with the windows 7 look for some reason.

 

It looks clumsy and also wastes space.

 

It is time that Pro Tools fixes this, probably by making custom designed window borders.

Attached is a draft of what it could look like.

Soundbase improvements

- large waveform preview - import selection - (option to) Show metadata description instead of file name if file has metadata description - Close with the same shortcut instead of opening a second Soundbase window. - keyboard focus (a/z icon) to enable better keyboard based workflow (dismissed when closing window) - etc... As a sound editor Soundbase is of no use for me (also no useful 'tags' are made). But I appreciate ...more »

Key History Menu

Kind of like the undo history menu, This would keep a list of all the keys that have been pressed within Pro-Tools. This would be really helpful cases like moving too quickly and accidentally pressing a key that makes a change within a clip or selection or unintentionally activating a function. This Key History menu would allow you to just look and see what you pressed.

Allow Mix Channel Views to be determined for each track

When dealing with a large mix, I often use the narrow mix view option to see more tracks in the mix window. Often, I want to see the normal view for a specific track. Instead of having to change all or none, it would be useful to be able to right click on the track and select the view just for that track.

Disable RHS scroll bar when all visible tracks are shorter than edit window

I set my edit window up so everything fits but then if I briefly expand a few tracks then shrink them again it scrolls down so I can't see the top few tracks. Why would I want more empty space at the bottom?

Lock Track View for specific Tracks (no Change when Ctr-Start-Alt-Clicking other tracks/parameters to change the Track View)

Useful, if you have an audio track with empty clip groups or a midi track with empty midi clips as "markers" (for film scenes, song parts, adr cues, notes, song lyrics, ...). By e.g. Ctrl Start Alt (Ctrl Cmd Option)-clicking "volume" on one track to change the track view on all tracks, those "marker" tracks do not follow, thus their name remains readable. Maybe by Ctrl-Clicking "waveform" in the Track View Display in ...more »

Plugin overlay for video out pcie/firewire

Having the option to have plugins, particularly meters as an overlay for video hardware outputs (video out pcie/video out firewire) would be enormously beneficial for both ADR and film mixing. For ADR it's important for the engineer to be watching for sync as well as levels at the same time. For mixing it means that you can focus on watching the screen your film is on instead of another monitor that is probably off to ...more »

Marker search

Similar to searching in the clip bin, I would like to be able to search for specific markers by name. This would let me find specific scenes or shots instantly instead of having to scroll through hundreds of markers or slowly through the session.

Clip gain access after fade

The clip gain icon is missing when fading up an audio clip. I wish to keep the clip gain icon for faster gain adjustment, especially during a long fade. I have to delete the fade to adjust the clip gain or switch to clip gain automation.

 

Can contact my email for further clarification. (davishanghang@gmail.com )

db value when viewing volume automation

Logic has this and it's quite useful. It's simply a db value relative to unity that appears when viewing volume automation.
