Page scrolling working intermittently on 12.7

With Page scrolling mode selected on the Edit window, if I use horizontal zoom while playing back the session the scrolling doesn't work, it just zoom on the point where the cursor started the playback.

Plug-in Automation triggers Track Upload every time on Cursor Position change or when Playback is started

This can´t be normal! when PT reads plugin automation during playback it changes the "upload changes" arrow into green (e.g. something has changed). But it was only an automation read, not an auto-write.

It does not happen with track automation (vol, pan etc) only if you auto-enable a parameter of a plugin. Tried it with Air VIs Air plugins and Avid EQ7.

 

This is not the correct behaviour isn´t is? Makes no sense!

MIDI quantization timing error in 12.6.1

This is an intermittent bug that is very difficult to pin down. When it happens, as perfectly illustrated by the attached screenshots, a quarter note that starts exactly on the downbeat of a bar, displays DIFFERENTLY between the edit window and the midi edit window.

 

The result of this is that clips cut to the bar in the session edit window in grid mode, copy incorrectly.

AAE error 9480 and waveform not displayed with "Repeat to fill Selection"

1) Put a clip on a track, make an edit with a crossfade (or an overlapping clip). 2) Copy some audio into the clipboard. 3) Make a selection over the clip downstream from the edit, and shorter than the amount that you have in the clipboard. 4) Paste special repeat to fill selection (opt-cmd-v). 5) Boom! Graphical error, AAE error 9480, playback does not include the edit, waveforms are blank. Totally repeatable. Thanks ...more »

Keyboard Shortcut is wrong and truncated in Edit > Copy Selection To > New Playlist

It shows "Alt+Shift+" in Pro Tools' menu, and the docs say "Start+Shift+Left Arrow"

 

The correct shortcut is actually Shift+Alt+Down Arrow (Win) and Shift+Opt+Down Arrow (Mac).

MIDI Data is written late in Pro Tools 12.6 when Delay Compensation is enabled

3) Create an audio track with a plugin with long latency

4) Record some MIDI alongside the click

 

Note the delayed MIDI

Option+Scroll on macOS Sierra is broken

I'm having very erratic option+scroll behavior, with PT 12.5.2 on macOS Sierra 10.12. (Yes I know it's not supported, but you'll have to deal with this issue at some point, so I'm letting you know.) normally option+vertical-scroll should zoom in/out on the timeline, and option+horizontal-scroll should zoom waveforms. But since I installed Sierra, now any option scrolling does both, and very oversensitively. It has also ...more »

Screen redraw artifacts when moving tracks or copying/moving clips vertically on timeline

1) Grab a selected track and move it up and down in the timeline. Don't release the mouse button. You should notice that after one more more times moving up and down, some of the clips and track names will start to get a little psychedelic looking. 2) Place the track back where you found it and release the mouse button. You will see the psychedelic trails remain. 3) Repeat with any of the other tracks - the key is to ...more »
