Critical bug in EQ7 with ProTools 12.7: Settings RANDOMIZED after session close & open

See that huge boost in the low-mid (screen shot #1 -- brown EQ band)? I didn’t do that, but it was there when I opened my session. That unexpected bump seems to even be saved in every single session backup file - so there’s no going back. My guess is that the plugin doesn’t correctly (or at all) save its values in the session file, so when PT tries to open the plugin, from any .ptx file or any session backup, it can’t ...more »

Multiple Mono MP3 Export or Bounce at 48kHz results in 44.1kHz mp3 files

On multiple systems I have observed that when exporting or bouncing files, selecting 48kHz multiple mono on the bounce/export options page results in 44.1kHz files being encoded. I work in post production and regularly send MP3 'work in progress' updates to my clients/colleagues, and it seems a bit unnecessary that files would be down sampled at my end to 44.1kHz, and then upsampled at the receivers end back to 48kHz! ...more »

Pro Tools bugs

CPU usage spikes to 100% for no reason

The CPU usage will spike to 100% for no reason, even when nothing is playing. There are sometimes "Pro Tools ran out of CPU power" messages. This also happens with all plug-ins removed from the plug-ins folder, as well as when there is no session open and the software is simply open. Greatly increasing the buffer helps some, but this is an unacceptable solution, as it adds latency. I spoke with Avid Pro Tools support ...more »

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.....
