Notification of overwriting clips by mistake.

We seriously need a notification if you're going to be dropping an audio clip onto another .

sometimes when dragging long pieces of audio,you can accidentally overwrite a clip further down the timeline that you can't see.

Just a notification stating that there audio where you're dragging onto.....

Fix 12.8+ Crash on Quit

I know it's not impacting everyone, but for me, going from 12.7.1 to 12.8.1 introduced a new crash which happens every time I try to quit the app: it just shows the generic 'Send to Avid' crash reporter. Apparently, the same happened for some others who tried 12.8.0 also. For me, it's completely tied to whether or not I have Guitar Rig 5.2.2 in my plugins folder or not, but there could well be other plugins related to ...more »

Committing MIDI Clips by Drag and Drop fails to chase CC

When committing MIDI to audio by drag&drop onto an audio track, the current state of (some?) CC data is ignored. This can cause committing by this method to produce a different result than committing by using the Commit command. It also fails to extend the committed audio clip to accommodate ongoing audio signals. PT 12.8.1

not making a new clip properly with Midi Merge off

I have midi track, already have a midi clip. Midi merge is off. Loop playback and record is off (and so is destructive and quickpunch record). Also tried dynamic transport on and off. When I record this midi track, it doesn't create a new midi clip, it is updating the existing clip. I have Midi merge off so I am confused what it's doing this. I want it to create a whole new midi clip when I record in this mode. also ...more »

Waveform Overview Calculations randomly happening with Resynching Folder Contents

Randomly my system will get bogged down with the task of Recalculating Waveform Overviews as well as Resynching Folder Contents. As I'm editing dialogue, the sessions contain multiple gigabytes of material. The process can take upwards of 30 minutes each go. My hard drive is formatted properly (Mac OS Extended, Journaled) and has gotten me thru three other seasons of different TV shows this year. I've read that its a ...more »

Spot dialog box bug

Please take a look at this screenshot and give me an opinion. Notice the time code where the cursor is parked. When the input dialog is set to "spot", shouldn't the "current location" show where the cursor is parked, so I can press the little down arrow and move that number to where I want to spot the incoming audio? The "current location" always comes up at "0". What's weird is my session doesn't even start at "0".

Pro Tools 12.8: 7.1.2 and 7.1.4 tracks showing as 7.1 tracks on older Pro Tools versions

When opening Pro Tools sessions with 7.1.2 or 7.1.4 tracks on older Pro Tools versions (prior 12.8), the tracks will show up as 7.1 tracks and the height speaker channels will be truncated without warning. I think there should be at least an error message (like opening a session with 5.1 or 7.1 tracks on a non-HD System) or the tracks should be deleted from the session. If not, you will never know that the tracks had ...more »
