Playlist spill feature

It would be cool if you could spill playlists the same way that you spill VCA's on the S3. being able to comp this way would be a huge time saver.

re-assign/alternate select button via eucontrol pref

It would be great to be able to re-assign the select button on the S3 via Eucontrol prefs. For those using the VCA spill workflow, this would be killer. I know that a lot of users find that having the select button in between the faders can be a bit tight. How about being able to assign it to a touch or press of the top or middle row knobs via a eucontrol preference. It could also work to use a keyboard modifier(s) in ...more »

Lock Channel - Similar to S6

Would enjoy having this feature included in the S3 as I found it to be very helpful while on the S6. Makes for a handy way to keep channels temporarily in place without creating a layout.

Make S3 USB ports accessible by OSX

Why do I need extenders to connect my keyboard and mouse to the mac, when I have a S3 with USB ports on the same desk.

Aux to fader in Soft Key Assign

A separate soft key assignment for e.g. aux j to fader would be more convenient than pushing aux-page-page-page-page-page-page-page-page-page-flip.

Improvement of making fader layouts

Making fader layouts is way too slow.

 

Some suggestions:

* Assign tracks clicking on tracks or faders in Pro Tools

* Use the same key commands of Pro Tools routing when assigning tracks in Eucontrol (eg. ALT + blank strip = all tracks blank, SHIFT + ALT + blank strip track = only selected tracks blank, ALT + CMD + track 1 = track 1, track 2, track 3, ...)

* Assign tracks touching faders on the S3

Import/export S3 fader layouts

The ability to import and export S3 fader layouts, especially since they get lost when opening and saving a session with non S3 equipped Pro Tools setups. Importing fader layouts from an older session would be much faster, than starting all over in the S3 editor.

S3 follows Scroll Into View

With the artist mix series of controllers, when you scroll into view on the mix or edit window of ProTools (either by right clicking on track name and selecting or by holding down SHIFT/CONTROL and clicking) the controller follows the selection and puts the track on the far left. This is not the behaviour on the S3. It would be great if it was.

Spill Memory Locations

It would be pretty great to be able to spill memory locations to either the top or bottom row of OLEDS.

Using them as straight up Verse/chorus etc. markers or for recalling window configs etc would be extremely powerful.

Bank with attached trackpad or mouse

There is an input on the back of the S3 for a mouse but it doesn't integrate with the S3 in a useful fashion within ProTools. It would be amazing to be able to bank around on the S3 with an attached mouse scrollwheel or even better, imagine being able to use a trackpad (apple magic trackpad) and use swiping scroll gestures to bank. It would be like scooting your chair down the console!

nested VCA spill workflow improvements

When using a VCA within a VCA, it would be great if the behaviour followed the parent/child nesting model. For example. In my main drum VCA, I have sub VCA's for snare, kick, close mics, far mics etc. I add the sub VCA's to the main drum VCA so that when I spill the main drum VCA, I have my sub-groups all laid out. When I enter a sub group to edit, and then return (double clicking select on far right fader) it takes me ...more »

Can we have layouts with more than 16 channels?

It would be great to be able to create layouts with more than 16 channels. For example, let's say I have 24 tracks of drums/percussion. I'd like them to be all in a single layout, where I can Bank/Nudge through only the drum tracks within my layout.

 

Currently, I would need two different layouts and I would have to remember what track is in which layout etc.
