Batch Processing

Pro Tools needs to add Batch Processing and Batch Commands. How many times have you done tedious tasks of moving things to playlists, or organizing tracks, or applying AudioSuite plugins on multiple clips, or bouncing out different stems, or something.

 

I think being able to add batch commands would greatly help improve workflow in Pro Tools. It's in Audition and it's awesome.

Smell-O-Audio

I think we need a system that is similar to Smell-O-Vision but with audio so that we can smell what the sound smells like , different guitar pedal keyboard smell , and also the singers breath smell in the mic Smell-O-Vision was a system that released odor during the projection of a film so that the viewer could "smell" what was happening in the movie. The technique was created by Hans Laube and made its only appearance ...more »

Move Muted Clips to playlist Command

This would be a great feature for comping dialog tracks quickly in film post. Often as I am listened through scene I use the mute key command to mute the secondary mics within a sequence of shots. While I like to take these out of the primary track view for mixing, I do not want to delete them in case I need a tail or piece of tone later. The easiest action would be to just select over a section of clips and when you ...more »

DSP vs Native Plug in coloring

Make it so DSP instantiations are colored differently from native instances of plugins. Right now the only way to definitively tell is to open the plugin. Too tedious if trying to maximize DSP usage in a large session. Of course this has implications for BYPASS coloring also. With coloring it adds speed and value to the HDX / DSP platform. Glancing at the mixer and seeing whats DSP vs Native in a second would be a real ...more »

Move/Copy Plug-in in-between' two contiguous Plug-ins

It would be great if you could move or copy a plug-in in-between two contiguous plug-ins.

At present, we only have the option to replace one of the plug-ins and it is time-consuming dragging plug-ins down first to create a empty insert slot.

When hovering in-between two plug-ins a highlighted line should inform the user the dragged plug-in will be inserted in-between these plug-ins.

HiDPI Mode for UHD 4K/5K Displays - Windows 10

Windows 10 display scaling makes Pro Tools fuzzy on HiDPI Screens and using native resolution on UHD Screens makes Pro Tools too small.

Pro Tools looks beautiful in macOS on HiDPI Retina Displays however, on Windows it looks awful.

An option for HiDPI Mode in Preferences would be greatly appreciated.

Mono track Track Bounce

I am scratching my head on this one. Whenever you do a track bounce it ONLY bounces stereo, even if the track is mono. If you switch to dual mono in the pop up dialogue menu then you get 2 mono ( L & R) ... even if its a mono track. This makes absolutely no sense. I feel this may be a bug or maybe it was just a missed implementation? I even tried selecting only mono tracks and it still bounces them as stereo. Soooo .... ...more »

right click clip in timeline to export

Wondering why the necessity to go the bin to export. Why can't you just right click on the clip that you want to export?

link edit/mix groups suspend anomaly

1. In Mixing preferences, when Link MIX/EDIT Group Enables are unchecked, the Suspend ALL Groups command "CTL+SHIFT+G" no longer affects the EDIT GROUP enable. In that mode, only MIX groups are suspend by CTL+SHIFT+G. There is no longer a keyboard shortcut to suspend EDIT groups. It would be helpful to the workflow if there was a shortcut command when it is in this option mode. 2. Also, what is going on when you click ...more »
