Frequency based Strip Silence

Since there is a lot of bleed when tracking drums and most drums have pretty different frequency content it would be great to have the ability to non destructively E.Q. before running strip silence. For instance, on snare drums with a lot of quiet grace notes it would be great to exclude all of the lower frequency content that would include the kick but not the snare. High hats are also a nuisance in this regard and could ...more »

Clearer Beat Ruler for Compound Time Signatures

My understanding of compound time signatures is that they're distinct from others because they group notes into 3s (e.g. 12/8 differs mainly from 6/4 because it contains 4 groups of 3 notes, rather than 3 groups of 2; same with 6/8 vs 3/4, etc.). The Pro Tools rulers don't seem to reflect that. Instead, for 6/8, 9/8, 12/8, etc., the dividing lines still group quarter notes into 2s or 4s, putting the emphasis on different ...more »

"Open Recent..." show more than ten recent sessions

"Open Recent..." should show more than just the ten most recent sessions. I usually can't find a session I worked on two days ago because this is limited to 10. I'm constantly retitling sessions with appended names ( "basics", or "drum comp", or "vox tuned"), plus I am working with up to ten different artists at any given time. Why not 50 most recent? Why not let user decide the quantity in preferences?

Bounce to QuickTime cancel button

It would be great is there's a cancel button when bouncing to QuickTime file. Please disregard if it's been implemented in 12.7.1.

"Move Playlists Also" check box

It would be really helpful if, when moving all regions in a track, a group of tracks or an entire session to a new location in time using the Appleā€”H command, if there were a check box in the dialog window that, when checked would move all the playlists for said track(s) the same amount as the surface playlist.

Stem Bounce

It would be incredibly handy to have a way to export all or all selected tracks through plugins at a single time in order to build a stem mix. This would also require the ability to bounce through busses as well but would be mighty handy.

Playlist based Notes

It would very nice indeed to have notes per take. When tracking it is vital to keep good notes about which take areas are good or bad. Rating them does nothing to alleviate this and having a single note section makes it cumbersome to go through. Usually these notes are small and don't take up a lot of room so maybe have another clip view where we can place notes directly on the clip. How it is done is less important than ...more »

Save Session Copy dialogue should include interleaved status

In the Save Session Copy dialog box you can set Audio File Type, Sample Rate, and Bit Depth, but not interleaved/non-interleaved status. (See attached pic.) Since this dialog box allows you to make those other transformations, why not include "interleaved" as a check box, just as in the Session Setup window? Not infrequently I find myself working with non-interleaved files (e.g., from people who have an older version ...more »
