Working as a Project when the need arises and as a Session by default isn't sustainable when managing high volume work flows.

Update Cloud Collaboration to allow different versions of the same project

The biggest hurdle in using cloud collaboration is the inability to version projects. This greatly hinders our ability to work backwards when needed.

 

For what it's worth, I have not had one session in the last 15 years that I did not need to work backwards.

New Core Audio Drivers

Avid has without a doubt the industry standard WORST core audio drivers. Please improve upon this poor excuse of a driver to support OS X features like Quick Look, Web browsers, QUICKTIME and all the other normal everyday things a computer user in 2014 does. There are $100 interfaces with better Core Audio drivers than my HD Native rig. SMH
