Smart Tool Intermittently not Working in PT 12.8.3

Trashcan Mac Pro (2013) 6-Core - OS X Sierra 10.12.6 - Pro Tools 12.8.3

 

The smart tool intermittently will not switch between trim, hand, and fades tools correctly while editing no matter where you place the cursor - have to shake mouse all over the screen and it will finally work.

GUI Lag with PT 12.8.3 on Supported System

Trashcan Mac Pro (2013) 6-Core, AMD FirePro D500 Graphics, OS X Sierra 10.12.6

 

Same GUI lag that was present in 12.8.2 - seems to come and go at times - most noticeable when zoomed in a few levels on the edit view. Sometimes helps to close and re-open session/application, other times does not. No background activities consuming system resources aside from PT. Lag unnoticeable when zoomed out enough levels.

Audio playback switches to USB when device plugged in - overriding thunderbolt device

I have a Universal Audio Apollo thunderbolt interface which never gets unplugged - but when I have a usb device plugged in and powered on (such as an Axe FX or Line 6 POD) Pro Tools will switch the audio playback device on its own during launch. I have to shut off the USB devices before launching Pro Tools to prevent this - it would be nice if the audio playback device would stay configured to thunderbolt (or whatever ...more »

Playback glitch while editing in stereo playlist view.

During playback, editing a clip on a stereo track while in playlist view causes a system-wide playback glitch the first time an edit is made, and then a playhead jump on the second edit. Mono playlist editing doesn’t cause the glitch, but stereo and LCR do. PT 12.8.1 doesn't exhibit this behavior, 12.8.3 does.

Allow user to reserve CPU core(s) for Video Satellite or other process

Implement a feature similar to what was in Pro Tools 10 allowing a user to define the number of cores reserved for Native processing.

 

We've discovered that CPU spikes (near and up to 100%) can cause Video Satellite connectivity issues.

Pro Tools ignores "Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device" on Windows 10 and seizes exclusive control

So here's my issue: I open a browser to search for sound effects (I use soundsnap and audioblocks), I can play a sound through my main audio interface (Focusrite Saffire Pro 56) just fine. If I launch ProTools, even through I have "Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device" UNCHECKED ProTools still stops the computer's ability to play back audio through the browser. I've isolated the issue and ...more »
